UDI Inspiration Challenge #144 – Celebrate Card

 Hello again, it is time for UDI Inspiration Challenge, #144.  I got hungry for a milk shake with the picture that Maria picked out for us this week. 

IDiva_IC_144 needed to make a card for a young woman that I work with that had a birthday this week and is graduating from college this weekend.  Instead of making two seperate cards (birthday and graduation), I combined them together for a Celebrate Card.

It is a simple design, but a little time consuming to make, in that I had a lot of cutting involved in creating this card.


Stamp Sets:   Sock Monkey,  Sock Monkey Accessories, Matchbox Messages

Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White

Diva_IC_144 Celebrate Ink:  Crumb Cake, Bravo Burgundy

Accessories:  Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Write Markers (Bravo Burgundy, Pretty in Pink), 5/8" Satin Ribbon (Pretty in Pink), 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch (retired)

I hope these pictures and my creations are inspiring you to stamp.  I would love to share your creations at the Corner.  Email me so I can feature your creation.
