Ginger Blossom Blooms

Tuesday night was our monthly Inklings cyberstamp, this month hosted by Kari. This card is actually for challenge 3, based on a layout that Kari came across on the Stampin' Up! website. I do plan to use the "sketch" of the layout to make a layout of my own, but for now I contented myself to just make a card. I decided to base my card around the Ginger Blossom papers, I really love the colour combination in it so went from there. The center piece is a chipboard frame with inset. I covered the frame with DSP and used the faux metal technique on the inset piece as I thought this would work well with the "HB" stamp.

The retirement list post has also been updated today.
