All Booked up

I made this card with 3 friends in mind who all celebrate birthdays in the month of September and thought it perfect for the Paper Players Clean & Simple Challenge# 14. The stamp used is called All Booked Up from Papertrey Ink where my inspiration came from. All 3 of my friends are book-lovers so this was the perfect stamp to use and also enabled me to include a book mark for their use. You can never have too many book marks, right.
The ink is SU's Old Olive and a little scrap of paper from SU's DSP Island Oasis. The book mark was stamped in Versamark then heat embossed in clear embossing powder. Hope all you book-lovers out there enjoy this.

A posting for the PPA#58 challenge. PPA's inspiration photo is fabulous, who doesn't remember Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn, such a classic. I envisioned this gorgeous dress trimmed in pearls hanging on a hanger just waiting for Audrey. A little black CS for matting and a piece of striped ribbon gathered and topped off with a thinner black velvet ribbon. Of course I had to finish the inside with a pair of red shoes also trimmed with a pearl.
I hope you enjoy looking at the card as much as I did creating it using retired S.U. set called Haute Couture (still one of my all-time favorite sets). Thanks for looking!

Classic Car

A close friend's hubby is in love with his beautifully restored 1964 Lincoln Convertible. His birthday is coming up so I thought it appropriate to send him a card with something he loves. I found this picture which is a pretty good replica of his own car, on the internet, I printed, matted and placed it on the card and thought it looked pretty good. I'm sure he's going to appreciate it, hope you do too.
