IC337 - Red Envelope

This week's inspiration site is  Red Envelope. Wow! There are so many cool things and they're photographed beautifully (to entice you to 'need' them! lol!)

I made two cards:



Anyone who knows me will see the irony here. I rarely drink (brought up in the Salvation Army) and even more rarely go to bars, but the graphic shape really caught my eye I used a Papertrey flower die and my long oval nestability to make this. I'm also going to put this in CASual Friday - use a die or punch.






Anyone who knows me will not be surprised at all that I chose jewellery to inspire this card!  The sentiment is Stampin' Up, and the 'necklace' was stamped using 3 rings stamped fairly randomly. Everything embossed in silver.

The ringed card is really amazing! I have to say, I'm jealous of your ability to use inspiration like that!
