Sometimes you see a photo, a challenge, a project or just a word and you just have to rush off and start crafting (or a piece of paper and make frantic notes, if the former isn't possible) which is what happened to me when I saw today's inspiration photo at Addicted to Stamps and More
I've had this twig stamp (a Linda Luckin stamp, no longer available) for many years, and used it in many ways, but it's never crossed my mind to add gems to represent berries or baubles before. With the callicarpa just beginning to look fab in the garden with its bare branches and purple berries, look out for the stamp being used again with purple gems very soon, or better still purple pearls if I can get/create some.
Anyway, back to this card, I decided out of respect to the photo to keep the whole card very CAS, and with all those gems it could very easily have gone quite the opposite way! So the only other additions are a stamped sentiment and just a hint of clear Wink of Stella to give a suggestion of sparkly snow to the lower third of the card, although as usual the photos just don't do justice to the sparkle.
