how else you can use the stampin up catalogue

apart from buying everything in it of course hahahaahaha
it is an excellent source of ideas and inspiration.
this month the creative crew were asked to case a card from the catalogue and it had to be a tall card

i ummed and ahhed about a few and played with a couple but they were a bit poop 
(so i am not showing you them here!!)
and finally was happy with this card inspired by page 78 and the nature's nest set.
 the original used oranges and green and razzleberry i think
i swapped those colours for black, white and melon mambo
i changed the scallop trim punch for the lace ribbon punch
and the dragon fly for a butterfly.
the sentiment also got changed
i also wanted to change the medallion stamp from being subtle to being in your face!!
so i used the melon mambo embossing powder to really pop it out!
to finish it off i made a matching envelope using the very cool long envelopes from stampin up

i would love to see what card sketches have inspired you
feel free to leave your inspirations in the comments section and i will pop on over and say hi!

cheers ears
