Inspiration in Many Places

Inspiration is everywhere! In the cards we receive, in paper-crafting magazines and on websites, from demonstrators like me! ;) The inspiration for this card is two-fold. First I was inspired by my birthday card from Beth H. HERE

The second wave of inspiration came from a card (the one here on the left) we received from our prayer couple on the Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend we just helped present the weekend before Thanksgiving. (Remember the Altered Notebooks?)

So here is my version of the inspirations meshed! The SU! Flower Fusion felt flowers and antique brass brads add wonderful dimension and texture all at once. I was also happy to have a project to use the Old Olive Love & Happiness RubOns with - I had used the other colors, but not the Old Olive yet! I layered the inside of the card with Old Olive, then used Chocolate Chip RubOns inside the card too - as shown in the next picture.

Card stock, Embellishments, Accessories make for a very quick and cute card! Try it yourself, and post your links here!

Very cute card,Juli. I like the felt flowers and those olive rub ons. I haven't used many rubons, but I do like them. Happy belated birthday!

I love this card Juli. I love doing Stampin' Up! card make-overs. Happy Belated Birthday by the way. I'm sorry I didn't wish it to you earlier. How are the Belgian waffles? I need a new waffle maker too.

HI Erik - thanks for visiting my blog, and for leaving a comment. I have heard good things about National Marriage Encounter, though I am not sure of the differences between it and Worldwide Marriage Encounter ( - which my dh & I are involved in. God bless you for your work in promoting programs that help strengthen God's Sacrament of holy matrimony.
