Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge #134: Ring In the New Year!

 Stamps:  Paper Pretties 'Elegant Sentiments'.  Cardstock:  Textured black, red, silver, glitter white.  Ink:  Versamark.  Accessories:  circle and square Nestabilities, Martha Stewart scallop border punch, silver EP.



This week's challenge is to  ring in the new year...use "ring" as your inspiration...could be circles, could be silver or gold, could be gems...anything that you can do with "ring" as your inspiration.   I used wedding rings as my inspiration and created a 'congratulations (on your wedding) card with this elegant sentiment set that also features rings in the border design:

The sketch inspiration for this card is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #106.  In case you didn't know, this is Mercy's final sketch challenge.  That makes me a bit sad since I always find Mercy's sketches very inspiring, but it also seems fitting since this is my last DT card for a while.  I'll be taking a break from 'serious' stamping  while our family prepares to move to a new home and prepares the current home for sale.  Wish us luck and as few frustrations as possible with the home-buying/family moving process!
Be sure to enjoy the other Pretties' Gals 'ringing' cards:

  10. Dearest Jess, thank you so much for your concern with me, I have so missed seeing your stunning cards. I am slowly coming to terms with the floods and other worries we have had but you know, scrapping is just so important not to just document memories but for the wonderful friends like you I have made. Thank you again for being so kind. Melxx
