EONAC Delight

This EONAC challenge kicked my butt, because I decided to drag out the Stamp-a-ma-jig. It was an exercise in frustration, with the original idea ending up as a series of smudges. There's a reason that is a forgotten tool! I ruined one of the last pieces of Very Vanilla CS I had - my SU! order better arrive quickly :)

The card is inspired by a bra in the latest Kohl's ad that came in the mail. I cropped the image so you could still see the pattern, but so that it was not obvious I was posting a bra on my blog! I used Perfectly Plum, So Saffron and Regal Rose inks along with the Delight in Life stamp set (one of my oldies-but-goodies). I used the SAMJ to line up the flower centers with the flowers and also to make the background on the plum layer. The sentiment is stamped on Regal Rose on So Saffron cs, cut out with the Labels Three die. The ribbon is from my stash, along with the rhinestones.

Today is a beautiful day and Carter and I have already taken a walk. I've gotten 4 loads of laundry done and have started to dig out the playroom/den. Just a touch of spring fever has me wanting everything CLEAN! I hope you have a good day, too. Thanks for looking!

I love to clean sometimes's a sickness, I think. I love your color combo...and from a bra no less! Damn the stamp-a-ma-jig!

Oh I think this is so pretty. I just love that set and need to get it out and use it! Sorry the SAMJ gave you grief. I love mine. Your background you made on this is beautiful. Great card all over. Thanks for joining us again!
