Charmed, I'm Sure!!!

This week's featured stamper on SCS is Charmaine aka Charmwarm. I normally get to make my card for this challenge on a Sunday afternoon but this week the challenge wasn't posted until later so I had to wait until today to make my card. Which is most probably just as well because I wouldn't have been able to make this particular card yesterday as the stamps only arrived in the post this morning - there is a reason for everything LOL!

Charmaine has lots of fantastic cards in her gallery and lots I would love to CASE given the time. But the one I decided to use for this challenge is this one here. I guess the thing that I noticed first on Charmaine's card was the dot paper she used, I had just purchased some dot papers on Saturday while out shopping. So with the combination of the new dot paper & new stamps this card was created. As my dot paper had a white background I decided I needed a colored card for the base, so went with certainly celery as there is some of this color in the paper or close enough match anyway.

Here are the things I changed:
  • Changed the image used
  • Changed the colors
  • Changed the direction of my ribbon (of course I had to decide that after I had attached my image didn't I LOL!)
  • Changed the color of my brads used
  • Added my verse to a colored circle at the top left corner of my card.
Stamps: Cocktail Time & One Martini - Inky Antics
Paper: Certainly Celery - Stampin' Up; White; Pink; Dot DP - KMart???
Other: Black Ink; Green Brads; Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon; Circle Punch; Tab Punch - SU; Foam Tape

This is so cute - that stamp is too fun, and I love the polka dot paper to play on the bubbles from the drink!
