Ruffled Congratulations and An Inspiration

Happy Thursday everyone! There's suppposed to be another NEW CSI on tonight - I'm SO excited!!

Tonights card covers two challenges - I found a new Color Inspiration on this fun blog by Kristina - kwernerdesign You should check it out - she makes fun videos of the cards she shows you and other interesting stuff! Her challenge this week was to use Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla - seen below.


And here is my card using these colors.

The Ways to Use It challenge on SCS was to use ruffles or pleats on your card. I used my crimper on a piece of Choc Chip card stock, wrapped some ribbon from PapertreyInk around it and layered my Nestability stars over it. I used my Cuttlebug Congrats folder on the base of the card. All the stamps are from Verve Visual. They were having a sale on the stars so go check out their web site to see if it's still on!

Thanks so much for coming by today - I really appreciate it! Have a great evening!

Thought for today from Old Richard's Almanac: "Anger is never without a Reason, but seldom with a Good one."
