What's That Saying About The Best Laid Plans?

I had planned to make about five cards tonight, but that didn't happen. I made ONE card in response to Beate's Be Inspired Challenge #29. The challenge was to use this photo as the inspiration for a card...

...and here's what I was inspired to do. I started with a card base of Kraft CS. I added a layer of Chocolate Chip CS and used the scalloped edge punch along the bottom. The images, from the "Pocket Silhouettes" stamp set, were stamped in Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss. It doesn't show up in this photo very well, but the Whisper White panel at the top is scored every half inch to duplicate the paneled look of the wall in the inspiration photo. The horizontal slot punch was used so the Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon could be run behind the image on the top panel. Three half-pearls from the 'Pretties Kit' were added to finish the card. Hope you like it! Toodles!
