PDCC66 with Sarah Anderson

Well, I have discovered this week that a messed up work week can wreak havoc on your precious crafting time! Usually I'm off on Tuesdays (which is the day I work on my challenges), but I ended up on a seven day stretch and found just enough time to squeeze in a card this evening after work for the Play Date Cafe challenge. This week's challenge was a colour splash using the colour purple! This is what the inspirational photo looks like:

I decided to pull out some of my Stampin' Up! stamps I haven't used in a while and in this case it was a set that I've had for months, but never inked yet (this appears to be a running trend for me...stockpiling, but never using lol). Here is what I came up with in my crunched crafty time:

 This card was very simple to make. I stamped a chair from the "Have A Seat" stamp set from Stampin' Up! in basic black, five times across the paper. On a separate piece, I stamped the chair in versamark and then embossed it in lilac powder. The lilac chair was cut out and popped up off the second last chair in the row. I mounted the chair images on black and then mounted that piece on another white piece done in a checkered texture. I stamped the sentiment on the textured piece and then wrapped the two opposite corners with black satin ribbon, adding a bow to the top right corner. The final step was adhering the whole card front to a black card base...easy peasy :)

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps: Have a Seat, One of a Kind
Ink: Basic Black,Versamark

Thanks for looking and happy snow day!
