And this is the card I came up with.
You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz blog and I am sure that it was a great project - she always amazes me. If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way, just head on over to the home page of StampTV or here for the direct link to the hop!
The card was made using 2 stamp sets. The circle and sentiment in the middle was from The Giving Tree and the flourishes are from the Grand Damask set both sold by GinaK. I took several elements from the photograph. I have the Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart on the bottom which I had scored and then stamped and embossed with the flourishes. The main image and sentiment was also embossed with gold. I had a Sizzix leafy die cut that I cut out of gold to use around the image. I used a Spellbinders Impressibility for the background panel and sponged some burgundy ink on it. In the 2 corners I used the 3 decorations on the dresser of the picture and placed them as a finishing touch. This might sound silly but that took me a while to come up with. It needed something and that was it.
Now hop on over to visit Sharri Seffens for some more inspiration. I am quite certain she has an amazing project to share.
