he loves me, he loves me not

Happy friday - and welcome to another inspiration post!

I went with an older stamp for my card today - the more of those Simply Sassy stamps are released the harder it is to pick one!LOL So I did the "close your eyes and pick one" game today and ended up with

Call Me.

And guess what, it was perfect to be used with Marlena´s sketch over at the Sugarbowl Blog! Well, you just have to be lucky, right?

And there are those days where I have a hard time picking a color combo. So I was looking around to get some inspiration and found it in a little bag I store my MakeUp in. It´s light brown, yellow-ish brown and a aqua tone. Don´t you just love these colors together? And honestly, I would never have picked these on my own.

These are the markers I used for the coloring:

For matting the papers I decided to use both, white and aqua cardstock and for decoration I kept it quite clean but matched the daisy flower with the one that´s included in the image (even if it has left nearly all its blossoms) and also picked a matching paper for the background. So I think everything comes together as one piece.

Hope I inspired you to use your older Simply Sassy stamps as well!

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend and see you next thursday.


  1. Ромашка как настоящая! :)))) Чудесная открытка!

  2. oh wow Kathrin...stunning!!


  3. I do love these colors together Kathrin, it's gorgeous!! Really love the sprinkling of gems too, perfect!!

  4. It definitely comes together as one piece - I agree about the colours too & I love the way that daisy flower is carried through from the image to the embellishment & the pattern in the paper. It's a lovely touch to have the lace flush with the panel one side & extending beyond at the other - very effective.
