Almost Ready to Pass the Torch...

This is my last official AmberINK Torchbearer project! Where did the month go? I had such a blast doing this. Amber and Pam are great fun to hang out with, and were very patient with this newby blogger and first time design team member.


For this simple but elegant card, I used the champagne glass from the set Hostess with the Mostess as well as the flourish from Tis the Season to be Pretty, which seems to be my go-to flourish lately! I think the Spin Pin: Holiday - Black Tie: Tiny iPaper is currently my favourite, too. I went with pink champagne, mostly because I couldn't decide what shade I could use for regular champagne that couldn't be mistaken for something else. You know, apple juice. What were YOU thinking I meant? ;) The champagne and the flourish are also traced over with my Spica clear glitter pen that Santa generously put in my stocking this Christmas. (Santa is SO smart.) I had to leave my photo a bit darker than I liked to leave a little of that sparkle showing. (You can see it if you big it, I hope...) I think this will make a perfect engagement, wedding or anniversary card.
Thanks, Amber and Pam, for a fun month! You haven't seen the last of me, though... :P

Supplies: black & white cardstock, silver pearl paper, Spin Pin: Holiday - Black Tie: Tiny iPaper, pink watercolour pencil, Spica clear glitter pen, dimensionals Pin It Now!

I'm glad you went with pink champagne, too :) Plus, the subtle shimmer is quite lovely!

You have made some knockout projects this month, Linds -- way to do the orange torch proud :)

Ooooh, what a great celebration card! Love all the sparkly on it! And I may just have to pick up some of that Spin Pin paper--you've sold me on it!

You have a way of making this Black Tie paper so...ELEGANT. Yeah, that's the word. I'm still swooning over the dinner menu! I think we might have a Forrest Gumper on our hands *LOL* We love the way you run girl!

I raise a glass to you, m'dear. Wowie and zowie! I'm always amazed when I wander this bashful way. xoxo
