TCP Inspiration Challenge

Wow I have been on a roll this week getting my challenges done. There are still a few I wanted to do but dont know if I will get a chance to because we are going away for the weekend and that means no crafting for me. (I would rather stay home!!)

This is the card I made for this weeks Tuesday Challenge at The Cats Pajamas. It was an Inspiration challenge based on the above picture. How neat and clean is that picture. Boy do I wish my house was like that!! (Never happening!!). So I pulled out the blues, greys and yellows to make my card. My image is from TCP as is my sentiment. They were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI Cardstock. My dp is from the SU Prints Pack and I cant remember where I pulled the Saffron piece from. All Cardstock is SU. My grey baubles are from Stamping Bella and my sheer ribbon was purchased at Micheals. I like the way this came out. It is sweet.

So let me ask all of you a question. Which cardstock do you like the best for coloring with your copics. I have been using the PTI Cardstock which I love but someone told me that Taylored Expressions has great cardstock for coloring and it is not as thick so it does not use as much ink from your copics. Also I see alot of people using Gina K and My Favorite Things Perfect Panels. What is your fav and why?

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic night.

Cute card!! I just love that image, but I've told you that before.
I'm cheap, I use the Georgia Pacific paper but one of these days I might try something different.

Fabby card! And that's why that room is in a magazine. DOes anyone really live like that??????

I'm a SU freak when it comes to CS. It's the only CS I use. Call me shallow!

Have a super weekend.

What a cute card! You did a great joy from the inspiration!!!

I'm thinking the same question with prismas and gamsol. I just started with that and don't know what is best to use. Good idea to ask on my blog.
