Happy Birthday - Traveler's Inspiration Challenge #1


This is a card for Travelingmama's first Traveler's Inspiration Challenge. I have 2 nieces celebrating birthdays next month, so this card will be for one of them. I remember seeing these colorful Moroccan slippers on Tina's website months ago...so pretty! The photography on her site is impeccable. I love hearing about life in Morocco.

I was inspired by the sequined designs and the colors of the slippers. I love repeated geometric shapes on a card. I also listened to Kristina's challenge to "Use it, Sister." I used stamps I've owned for at least a year and have never inked up. In my next few posts, I'm also going to use paper and stamps I haven't used yet. So, I'm using it, Sister!

Thanks for stopping by!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Petals (Inque Boutique), sentiment (Inkadinkado)
Paper: Kraft & various SU! scraps
Ink: VersaMark
Tools: 1" circle punch, dotted scallop punch (EK Success), corner rounder (Fiskars)
Other: Diamond Sparkles (PSX), linen thread (SU!), mini rhinestones (Michael's), foam tape

'nuff said! This is so pretty. The clear embossed (I think) is a great way to show of those Moroccan shoes! Love the touch of glitter too. Very cute.
