Day 3 - CHA release for Emerald Creek

Welcome back everyone.

My final little inspiration for Emerald Creek and Nicole Wright Designs at CHA 2016.  Todays, creation is another shaker card.

Once again I returned to using the Fallen Blossom stamp set, new release.

I started off creating my background element by using some Distress Ink pads - I used Stormy Sky, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick.

For my card, I once again used papers from Polkadoodles Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.

The black silhouette couple, was an image I searched for ages to find that was free - and eventually found it here at Pamela's blog.  I imported it into Silhouette Design Studio and cut it out of black card stock.

For the inside, I used the same papers and continued the circle theme, from the front, for my message panel and added some of the wonderful Fallen Blossom (Nicole Wright Designs at Emerald Creek). 

All the edges of all the layers were inked with Distress Ink Pad - Vintage Photo.

I added some foam tape to some of the flowers to add a little dimension, and a little metal dragonfly brad by the Happy Anniversary.  The shaker element was a mix of stars and hearts, and finishing off the front with the wonderful sentiment stamp from the set.

I hope you have enjoyed my little collection of inspiration for the CHA new releases.  Would you like to get the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Emerald Creek store.  Then why not go along and enter our latest challenge, the theme is Anything New :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
