Sunday Stash Challenge 16 - Beauty of The Duomo

Good evening! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. I just got home from spending the day with my best friend Twyla- she really is the bomb you know? Anyway, we did something we rarely get to do anymore, and spent the entire day shopping. My feet hurt, my credit cards are squealing, I'm late getting my posting done, and my card for this week's challenge is far less than what I had hoped it would be, but Oh, it was worth it! We had a great time, and came home with some REALLY COOL new toys including a new Cricut machine!!! Whoohoo!!!!! I love new tools and this one is going to be way fun to play with, but for now I'd better get moving with this week's challenge.

Once again, Twyla was instrumental in helping me to decide on and find the inspirational photo for this week's challenge. She just returned from a trip to France and Italy and was singing the praises of The Duomo in Florence, Italy. She found me several photos to work with, and I chose this one because you can actually see the pretty rose colored windows. Apparently the facade is marble- green, white and pink so I tried to capture that using the shaving cream technique. I may have to try it again because I wasn't thrilled with my results on this one. As I said, I am kind of late getting my act together this evening so I whipped this card together rather quickly. Therefore, it's pretty SIMPLE in design.

Anyway, here are the details:

Stamps: Elegant Greetings, Autumn Leaves Flourishes Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, White glossy, Whisper White Ink: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive Accessories: Martha Stewart Lace Scallop punch, pearls (Crystal Stickers), Glitter Gel pen, Kiwi/Vanilla satin ribbon, dimensionals, shaving cream, Pretty in Pink and Kiwi Kiss refills.

How do I play along?: Just upload a project using this week's photo as inspiration to your online blog or gallery. Then leave a link to your project in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post. If you're linking to a blog, please be sure to link directly to the specific post where we can view your project, and not just to your blog. That way everyone who wants to look can get straight to your card. If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword SUSC16.

Deadline:The Mr. Linky form will close at 8PM CT on Sunday, July 5th, so all entries need to be in before then.
