Saturday SCS Inspiration Challenge

Saturday's challenge at SCS is always an Inspiration Challenge. I chose to use the green room posted; I call this card Kiwi Kiss Room.

As I finished each step, the card just didn't look finished so I'd add another element. At first, it was only going to be the white background image layered on black & attached to the Kiwi Kiss base.

Well, that was way too plain! So I thought about adding the brads but then decided to add the prima instead. With just the flower, it was still too plain, so I decided to add the brads.

It was getting better, but it wasn't finished yet. That's when I decided to add the white layer under the black. Nope, not done yet, something was still missing. I laid the white strip across the BG image & decided to layer it with black. It called out for a layer of Kiwi Kiss -- Eureka! All it needed now was the Happy Birthday sentiment. Done!

Featured Stamper and Carolyn King's blog

Today's Featured Stamper at SCS is E3stamper and she has a fabulous gallery! It was hard to decide on one card, but this is the one I chose.

I changed the colors,the image, and embellisments but kept the layout pretty much the same. This was a very fast card to make because the image was received in an image swap and the sentiment, white flowers, and Bashful Blue teztured CS were received in a Wish RAK. So, no stamping for me on this card!

I am sending this card to the Alzheimers Care Center that is listed on Carolyn King's blog. Alzheimers is a terrible disease and the caregivers often go unthanked. If you know someone who is a caregiver, please won't you send them a card? Or, if you are blessed and don't know a caregiver, please send a card to the Center that Cammie listed.

Recipe: Image: Received in a swap CS: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue textured, WW Ink: Black Stazon Accessories: SU! rubons
