No, there's no special occasion. At least not at my place. However, at The Shabby Tea Room blog they are celebrating their first birthday and therefore the theme of their challenge this week is "Party time". And there's another celebration going at Repeat impressions blog - they have their first blogaversary too. I've been dying to use this WOJ Willow with champagne stamp since I got it, but there hasn't really been an opportunity til now. However, today seemed to be the perfect time to ink it. :D
Isn't that image great? So cute and so elegant. And it can be used for so many occasions. I love it! I colored the image with Promarkers (Oatmeal, Blossom, Sky blue, Henna). Just champagne was colored with my Faber Castell pencils. I made this card in one of my favourite color combinations. :) I didn't want to add many embellishments onto this card (which is kinda strange, because usually I want to cover the whole card with embellies lol), I want the image to be in the center of attention. That's why there are no flowers and bling bling thingies this time. I just added a doily lace in the background and I made a small bow which I added on the side. I used Spellbinders die (one of them from the "Fancy tags" set) fot the tag in the bottom. I stamped "celebrate" with G studio's clear stamp. The blue paper I used in the background is from Provo Craft.
