The Craft's Meow Birthday Bash---Day 2





Hey friends!  So I wanted to send out a great big THANK YOU to everyone for stopping by yesterday for Day 1 of The Craft's Meow newest release for their Birthday Bash! 

Today I bring you yet another fabulous stamp set from Nina Brackett of Nina B Designs called Cherished.  If you like floral and collagy, then this going to entice you!  Such detail in these stamps.......this set also comes with lots of great words to make this as personalized as you need for that special woman in your life.  You know Mother's Day IS right around the corner! 

Again today, I broke out those Distress Inks for my flowers and gave them LOTS of dimension with foam tape on several layers.  My background was embossed with white filigree embossing powder and then Antique Linen ink was sponged over the embossed image for that weathered, vintage look.  Some of you know that this color combo just happens to be my all time favorite!  Today I've used the inspiration challenge for my card.






To continue with The Craft's Meow challenges this week for their Birthday Bash, today is an inspiration challenge for your eye.  You could totally go vintage or earthy or floral!  Let's see what you can do with it!  Check out TCM blog for challenge details and deadlines.



Remember to leave your comment on today's post for your chance to win that days featured stamp set!  All comments need to be left by 9:00pm PDT, Friday, March 23rd on TCM blog.  Tomorrow marks another day.........See you then!
