Jazzy Inspiration Challenge 2!


Hello! I was surfing my favorite blogs and Tenia always has great sketch and inspiration challenges posted. Now that the holidays are over I have vowed that I am going to participate more in those challenges! This card is for the Jazzy Inspirations challenge 2 found HERE. We were to use the Sam Rivers album cover shown above as our inspiration.
I used the houndstooth BG stamp from Unity stamped on Tangerine Tango. My card base is white. I added some black satin ribbon around the center. The flower is from Unity's Best friends set. I stamped the flower image and BG stamp in staz-on black. I used a build-a-brad(SU) for the center of my flower and stamped "friend" on tangerine tango. The friend sentiment is from PTI's mixed message set.
I like the way this turned out! Have a Fantastic Friday!
Happy stamping,
Emily

That background stamp really hit the "album cover" look! Fantastic job!

Wow, that does look a lot like the album! I love how the houndstooth looks on that. I've never been good with finding the right fit for it, but you sure are! Nice work!
