Never Give Up for CTD274 & CTS59

I finally managed to find some time to venture in the old stamp room and see what I could cook up.  All of my favorite challenges were calling my name, but I had a busy week with no time to stamp.  Saturday I found some time before the Pats game and I made a couple of cards.  This one uses the beautiful colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.  (You'll have to wait until Tuesday to see the other)!




I went quite literal with the sketch and used these grungy feathers on my card mainly because I got a new stamp set that I wanted to ink up.  Nothing says inspiration quite like some new goodies!

Today I've got errands to run, I'm going to try and start putting together the new treadmill that I got (which, as I understand it, is a huge job) and then I have to venture back into my stamp room.  I feel like I've been lacking inspiration lately with my cards which I have attributed to not enough stamping time so I'm going to sit down with my mojo and have a long talk after which I hope to get busy with some paper and ink!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  DIY (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Peach Parfait (SU); Onyx Black (Versafine)

Pin It Now!

As usual, your card is gorgeous! Love the feathery, soft look of your feathers - especially stamped in the blues. Good luck with the treadmill and good luck with the mojo, although I can't see that it's gone missing :)
