Silke *Day 4*

Today is our last day of inspiration with Silke :( but I saved one of my all-time favorite cards of hers to share today:
Silke's original post available HERE.
This card just oozes that lovely "Silke style" we all love- beautiful textures, colors, layers, ribbon... again, I could go on and on!  Here's my take.  I was especially inspired by her layout, although when I made my card I used orange where hers had white and vice versa.

The background was created by inking Tiara White cardstock which was embossed with Sizzix Gridlock embossing folder with Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Ink.  The flower panel (Penny Black) was stamped onto Copic Express It cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.  I also stamped the background with Penny Black Letter Background using Black Soot Distress Ink, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping.  The leaves were die cut using a Sizzix die and then inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  Sentiment is an SRM sticker layered onto cardstock which was lightly inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink.  Border punch by Martha Stewart, inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  Butterfly punches by Fiskars and Martha Stewart.

Thanks again to Silke for her awesome inspiration this week!

Oh my goodness, I missed this one of Silke's - who knew orange could be this elegant?! And of course, your take on it is just as delicate and lovely as hers.....your flowers make me think of nasturtiums, which lead me to memories of my grandfather's garden, so I'm smiling BIG!
