Sisterhood Sundays - An Inspiration Challenge

Hello Stampin' Sisters!   It's Sunday and time for another Sisterhood Sundays Challenge!  This week we have an inspiration photo
So pretty in the blues and silver isn't it?!     I'm really done with all the holiday/Christmas theme cards at this point -  so I let the colors inspire me,  not the theme - and created this card:
I clear embossed the Kolo Berry image that I inked with Chipped Sapphire Ranger Distress Ink (this ink dries slower so you can emboss with it!)  I cut the image with Nestabilities 14 and sponged the edges before taking it out of the die.  I colored the image with Copics and added Silver Stickles to the centers of the flowers.

I silver embossed the Ivy Frame on blue cardstock and embossed the edges with a dotted strip.

I adhered the die cut image to the blue panel with foam tape, then adhered the panel to the card.

This would make a lovely thank you note don't you think?!

This is also for the Featured Stamper today over on Split Coast - where I CASE'd this card of Bonnie's.

I hope you'll join us in the Sisterhood Sunday Challenge this week -  you could be chosen a Sunday Sister and win a stamp from Rubbernecker -  check it out here!
