Special Reason ~ #TGIFC100 Mercedes Inspired

Hi everyone! Here we are & it's Friday again! Yay!!! If you are new to my blog, my name is Carolynn and I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I am so super duper excited to be posting with the TGIF team today for their 100th design team challenge! It is an honour to be a part of this talented group of stampers. What better way to share that honour than with a Mercedes Weber inspired project?

Mercedes has such a wonderful array of inspirational projects over on her blog. To choose just one is not an easy task. Saying that, I fell in love with this gorgeous card of hers...

I love the individually cut flowers on Mercedes' card, as well as the dry embossed background, and the nicely wrapped twine. If you were to ask me, all of these little intricate details are what make this card so fabulous! I'm not sure if my card will be much of a comparison. Saying that, I wanted to change it up a bit & make it my own. Here is what I came up with, I hope I can make Mercedes proud!

In hindsight, I think I could have added a bit of bling! I love that gold glimmer butterfly on Mercedes' card. Regardless, I am pleased with how today's project turned out. Happy 100th Birthday TGIF! Who would have ever thought I'd be celebrating with this team for their 100th post? I am forever grateful! Be sure to check out the TGIF challenge site this week! The team has so much inspiration to share! We would also love to have you join us for this week's celebration, so stamp and craft away! 

Here are some quick links to the TGIF Design Team's personal blogs so that you can hop along and view each and every project up close! The team decided to celebrate #100 with a blog roll! Grab a coffee and check out all of the amazing posts!
