Card Thief

There is a thief among us... Oh yeah that would me!

I saw this gorgeous card from Andrea Ewen a few weeks back
and thought it was just beautiful so I put it in my favorites file
to glean ideas from it.  Only I have NO mojo right now, so
I pretty much stole used (tomato-tomoto) her whole fabulous
 card! I already had all my silver
 things out and had my doily left over from
 the box on my previous post, so it sort of
 went from there! I love this doily with the pearls! 
Actually I think the whole thing is gorgeous,
 I just can't take the credit!
Thank You Andrea you are the best!
I will try to come up with my own stuff,
but I love her stuff sooooo much, I may have
to steal use something from them! LOL!

The inside is all mine though!
At least I have some imagination!
Not much, but some!

Beautiful card - glad you could join us at OTWC this week.

Dorcas said...

Great job! So does the fact that we were together when you "stole inspiration" make me an accomplice??? Nah...

Yenni Natalia said...

Tammy said...

Just beautiful! Sometimes the wheel does not need to be reinvented!! :-) AND not everyone can do their admire justice so I am sure she would be honored! Thanks for entering this in the OTWC Color challenge! Good Luck!

Pure luxury!! I can totally see why you felt the need to use her design - it's drop dead gorgeous!!
Sorry I've been out of loop for so long, it's been more a hospital than a house here for almost a month!

Andrea Ewen said...

Awesome CASE Stacey! I love how you decorated the inside as well, I left mine blank...
And to answer Dorcas, yes she is an accomplice!

Papertrails by a paper lover said...

Hee hee! You had me laughing when I read about the card thief. At first I thought it was a terrible person stealing your cards you hand crafted with such love. Only to read that...anyhow "caseing" a card is perfectly acceptable these days plus you gave the proper credit. No credit equals not so good. It's beautiful! Love it! :-) AMy
