Hello and happy Friday! I have two cards to share before I jet off to work. First up is for the photo inspiration at The Challenge. I was inspired by the rose, the muted colours and the lace. Yes, I actually used lace! I have a silly amount of ribbon for someone who almost never uses it so I was thrilled to bits to use this scrap of Hero Arts lace for this card. :) The stamps are all Altenew - I thought their Vintage Rose set was perfect for this challenge - and I used Distress Inks for the stamping.
Cardstock: (White, Rustic White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stamping' Up

I swore to myself that this year I would play along with Merry Monday every week so that I would be on top of my Christmas cards and I've already missed the first two challenges. *Sigh* Hopefully I'll do better from now on. The theme this week is Warm Beverages and what could make for a happier holiday than a stack of caramel lattes?? Yum yum! My card was inspired by the memory of a red solo cup card that I saw a few years ago when it won a CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I actually managed to find it too! Funny the things that hang around in my brain...
