It's Time to Dance on the Table

I hope everyone in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday.  I know I enjoyed the wonderful meal and time with my family.  Today I have a card I made for my friend's mother who just turned 91 years old!  I used the Pinspired challenge for my inspiration.
 I wanted to make the card special for this special milestone birthday - so I used silver, gold, black and white colors.
The scallop die is Lil' Inker and the tag is Papertrey Ink.  My stamp is from the wonderful retro set from Waltzingmouse Putting on the Ritz - and I hope that's just what Evelyn will do in celebrating her birthday!  I think she'll get a giggle out of this!

Stamps:  Putting on the Ritz - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  White, True Black - PTI, Brushed Silver, Brushed Gold - SU, 
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  white embossing powder, Tag Sale #8 die - PTI, fan fare scalloped border - Lil' Inker Designs, heat gun, silver pearl - Michaels, foam dots.

Each of Us is God's Special Work of Art

I made this card for a new challenge I just found when visiting the blog of my stamping friend Annette -  it's called Pinspired - and they choose an image from Pinterest for the challenge inspiration.  Here is this week's inspiration:
And here's my inspired card:
I used my brandy new hibiscus die that I got from My Favorite Things along with my brandy new stitched mat rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs.

I'm also entering this into Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.

My next card was made for the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - to use Kraft and text.
I used stamps from the Ocean Bound set by Waltzingmouse.  I stamped the frame, sentiments and anchor on a piece of kraft paper, cut it out and layered it over the kraft card base with foam dots.  It's always good to have a masculine card on hand!
