SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS89 INK-E

This card was created for SCS Featured Stamper Challenge #89, featuring the beautiful gallery of Ink-E, Emily. HERE is Emily's card I chose to case. When searching featured stamper galleries, I'm usually very conscientious about not choosing a card that was made using a sketch challenge (one of the Featured Stamper Challenge rules). It wasn't until I was in the midst of case-ing Emily's card that I realized it was a sketch challenge card. So, not only is this a case of Emily's card, it uses Sketch Challenge #97.

I don't know what the deal is with this card, but I must have photographed it 50 times! ... and it's still not that great of a picture! Is Pink Pirouette the new River Rock? LOL! (River Rock was always difficult to photograph.)
RECIPE
Stamps: Lots of Thoughts (retired), In The Stars (retired)
Paper: Sweet Always DP, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie
Embellishments: Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Styled Silver Star Brads from Hodgepodge Hardware

Nancy great job with this challenge I love all the textures and the combo of patterns. I guess not all cards photograph the same even though I think this came out just fine. TFS.

i love how you continue to use stuff in your stash, instead of always profiling new materials! in this economy, we have to be somewhat frugal. :-)

i really like how you added the stars to each side of the sentiment, increasing its size. it's a cool layout too!
