It's the last day of the NBUS Challenge over at Darnell's, so I pulled out two new items in my stash: the October Simon Says Card Kit and a stamp set from Clearly Gina K. The stamp set includes a large, stunning image of a calla lily but also a wonderful set of sentiments. It's my first purchases from Gina K. and I'm impressed with it.
All the rest of the supplies came from the Simon Says kit: beautiful papers from My Mind's Eye from their Blush collection, a piece of Burnished Rose Mirrored cardstock, cream cardstock, and a jar of SSS Steel Navy embossing powder.
This angle highlights the bronze paper and bronze stripes in the patterned paper. You can almost see the sheen of the embossing powder which is really lovely. This is the last card I need for October birthdays and anniversaries. I need to start thinking about a Christmas card design, and be sure I have the beginning of November covered. There's a huge collection of cards linked to Darnell's challenges---plenty of inspiration here.
