Inspired Teaching

Hi, it's Joy today, and it's time for another wonderful challenge from Classy Cards 'n Such.  This week it is called Lilac Festival.  The challenge is to use lilac, lavender, purple or purple colors with neutrals of cream and white. 

I had the opportunity to attend a workshop in California called The Great Yosemite Stamp Escape. This is an event that has been held every year for the last 13 years. Great paper artists lead the workshops. This year Pam Sparks, one of the designers and instructors for Memory Box dies, taught a few classes, and inspired this card.

I used the Memory Box dies called Beach Sprig, Rhone Butterfly Wings, Pavilia Bloom Background with the Pavilia Bloom Outline, and Massa Leaf Frame.

I lightly stenciled a chevron background with a Tim Holtz (Evergreen Bough) Seasonal Ink, which are on sale at Classy Cards 'n Such. I made a spritz of a Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Stain in a Spritzer Bottle, and spritzed it on top of the chevron background.

I added White Baby Pearls to the ends of the Beach Sprig, and to the sequin centers. I did not add a sentiment on the outside, so this will go in my "any occasion" stack of cards.

Thanks for looking at my card - be sure to check out all the Memory Box dies at Classy Cards 'n Such. Just looking will inspire you!  Have a happy stamping day!

Wow, great inspiration and a beautiful card! Thanks Joy!
