Inspiration

This beautiful card was sent to me by Rita Holmes, a fellow TAC Angel and PW member. I was so inspired by this card!! Rita's card features TAC's Floral Dingbats set. I purchased this set recently and hadn't had a chance to use it yet.

Rita used creams and browns for her card. The main image was stamped on a shimmery cardstock. It's even more elegant in real life.


I decided to go with Bazzill's 'lagoon' cardstock for my card. I've been using this color a lot lately. I can't speak for Rita, but for my card I stamped the background with VersaMark to create a watermark. I had planned to stamp on a cream colored piece of cs for my main image, but I didn't have the right color of ink. So I used my heat gun and clear embossing powder to achieve what is shown here.

Thanks again to Rita for her beautiful and inspiring card!
