TCP Tuesday 145

Good morning, friends!  I believe the is the first post of a card shot in my lightbox!  I sure was frustrated the other day, but I realized that there is no perfect picture, so I still have to edit the photos on my computer.  I don't have to use my flash anymore though, and I really like having the clean white background.  I'm feeling much better about my lightbox now.  :)

For this card, I used this week's sweet sunday sketch:

The challenge for TCP this week was to get inspiration from the following photos:

Of course the color combo was the first thing to grab my attention, but I was also diggin' the stacked buttons. To start off, I grabbed some kraft cardstock and used my brand spankin-new Stampendous Jumbo Cling rubber stamp set that I just won on their blog, and inked it up with some turquoise ink by Autumn Leaves.  LOVE how easy it was to get such a big design element on my card.  :)  The delicious brown glittery paper is DCWV (At Home collection) and the turquoise cardstock was a scrap that I embossed with polka dots.  I stamped Miss Sprinkles on an oval stamp to create the ice, then colored her with my copics.  I added a little Martha Stewart glitter to jazz up her outfit. ;)  The buttons were my favorite part- I took out some turquoise buttons by Denami Design and some browns from my stash, and layered them up with some twine.  I think they look so yummy that way! :D  To finish off my card, I took the "thanks." part of the "Give thanks." sentiment on the Gobble it Up set and matted it with more turquoise cardstock.  

I'm sending this card to a co-worker of my mom's who is a Stampin' Up! demo.  I rarely ever buy their stamps because they're so darn expensive (and hello, when are they going to make CLEAR stamps?!), but Cathie always runs this amazing super bowl special, so I got 2 free sets, one set at 50% off, and another at 31% off (that was the score for the Packers).  I really got some great deals, so I thought I'd make a cute little thank you card to show her my appreciation.  

I hope you all have a great Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!
