No Jokers Allowed!

Here's a beautiful card using gorgeous Papers from Paper Temptress and a stunning image from Sweet Pea Stamps called We're all mad Here.  Isn't she stunning?  I wanted to using some striking papers to make sure this image popped off the card.  The image is actually the shape of the gold cardstock, the pink is just the background for the image.
 
Here's an closeup of this beautiful image from Sweet Pea Stamps:
The paper for the background of this card is called Gold Metallic Glossy.  The center stripe is handmade by me using a clear transparency which is inked with droplets of alcohol ink. I am using a strip of Neenah Solar White Classic Crest behind it to ensure you can see the alcohol ink colors.  The image is mounted on three papers:  Neenah Solar white Classic Crest, Ruche Deep Blue Crepe, and Azalea Mica/Metallic.  I printed out both my sentiment as well as my digital stamp image on the Neenah Solar White paper. To add sentiment, my clever husband came up with the saying"Seeking: King of Diamonds; No Jokers Allowed."

I hope this card inspires you to pull out some fun images and gorgeous papers this week to create something!  Have a wonderful weekend.
 
Cheers, Holley
