When Inspiration Hits...

What do you do when inspiration hits at four in the morning?
That's what happened to me.  I woke up with this idea in my head, got up and, as quietly as I could (so I wouldn't wake anyone else) made this card.

I usually try to keep some white card bases on hand, so this one was ready to whip out.  
I simply used the brick embossing folder along the center of the card and sponged that with Picante chalk ink.  
From another scrap of white cardstock I cut this rectangle for the two flowers and die cut this tag.

  • Cardstock, foam adhesive squares and A2-Bricks embossing folder (Hobby Lobby)
  •  My Notebook set (Hero Arts); ST-15-21 Peonies (Avery Elle)
  •  Picante chalk ink (Clearsnap)
  •  Cantaloupe, Bahama Blue, Bamboo, black dye ink and sponge daubers (Tsukineko)
  • Stitched Labels die set (Pretty Pink Posh
  • Sizzix Big Shot

It was so much fun to make, I ended up doing several more that day.
