Creative Inspirations Book Inspired

We were challenged to make a project inspired by a book……  And, I saw this book at my sisters home last weekend:
I have been wanting to do a Gothic Arch card for ages- so I decided this is my book!  I do not have any architecture type images…so I finally decided on these unique stamps I just found at a used stamp sale- retired SU.
This is probable one of the most unusual cards I have ever made…….  I love the way the Beige Creative Inspiration Paint matches the Cappucinno cardstock so perfectly! I painted the white edging trim with the beige, and then coated the headpiece with it, pus added cream highlights as well. 
The Beige and Cream CI paints are only available until Christmas in combination with Burgundy and Denim- this set is on special for $8.00 you can find it HERE
Ivory looks like SU Shimmery White
Beige looks very similar to SU Creamy Carmel and Cappicunno (yummy!)
Burgundy looks like Rich SU Razzleberry
Denim is very similar to SU Night of Navy- a touch less dark.
Gingersnap has a challenge with a theme Ancient Ages- I think this card fits that bill!!!

For the Creative Inspiration DT samples of Book Inspired Projects (posting Thursday 9/16) - HERE is the link to the Creative Inspirations Blog.
If you have made a card with CI paints, please stop by and link your card (upper Rt corner)- we would LOVE to see what you are up to!
