pinspired and tilted (Pinspired, SSS)

Did someone say bokeh?  I'm in.
Have you seen the inpiration photo at the Pinspired Challenge?

Notice the bokeh background.  The wavy texture of the frosting.  And the "slice of tree" acting as cake platter!  Obviously a wedding theme, but DD needs some thank you cards.  So....

I think overall there's a bit too much happening here, but here's what I did.  Stamped the bokeh pattern onto a panel and heat embossed three rings of gold.  Sliced the panel into three parts (still on a tilt from the PTI blog hop here).  Dry embossed only the middle panel and adhered it to the cardbase with foam adhesive.  A selectively-inked sentiment above a strip of washi and the wooden bird completed the card.

Also playing at Simon Says Stamp where this week's challenge is Anything Goes.  This sure fits the ticket!

Supplies Thank aou:
Paper: CS Bringmann 
Stamps: dots (PTI), sentiment (Hero Arts)
Ink : Hero arts, Versamark, Versafine
Tools: embossing plate (Sizzix)
Other: gold embossing powder, washi (Freckled Fawn), veneer (Studio Calico)


  1. I think this is wonderful! I love the gold and dry embossed circles!
