The Block is Broken!

Happy Saturday Everyone! If you visited here the other day, you know that I was struggling with some Artist Trading Cards that I needed to finish up for a swap that I am in. Things were just not working out the way that I hoped. This is what I finally came up with. I am pleased with all of my hard work. Let's hope that the others in the group are as well!

This was a swap for Elzybells stamps and the theme was Valentine's Day or love. I went with the love theme and included my favorite new sentiment from A Muse! The ATC base is So Saffron with a strip of Stampin' Up's Sarah Designer Paper (retired). My scalloped rectangle is made from Certainly Celery and my Spellbinder's Nestabilities Die. Elzy was stamped onto some Papertrey Stamper's Select Card Stock in Black Stazon and then colored with Stampin' Up's Watercolor Crayons. The moon and stars just had to sparkle, so I guessed it...Star Dust Stickles! Some striped May Arts ribbon tucked under the edge and a little bit of paper piecing and there you have creative block is broken...thank goodness!

So glad that you could stop by...Toodles! :D
