Blogger's Challenge!!!


This card is for this week's Blogger's Challenge. The challenge is to make a card with the long note's layout on page 65 of the Spring-Summer Stampin' Up catalog. It is such a fun layout and I can see myself using it again!

The card base measures 6-5/8" x 3-1/4" and it is made from a sheet of So Saffron. I stamped the little flower from the Simply Said set in Versamark and then I used a white gel pen for the centers of the flowers. (If you click on the picture, you'll be able to see the details a bit better.) The circular piece is another piece of that wonderful For Peeps Sake paper from Imaginsce that I love so much! I used my mini scallop scissors on a sheet of Chocolate Chip and layered it behind the patterened paper. This Martha Stewart ribbon from Michaels matched perfectly so it seemed like a great choice. Because of the brown details, I stamped all of my images in Chocolate Chip ink. The froggie, the dragonfly, and the mushroom are all stamped on Whisper White and then colored and added to the card with Dimensionals. I added some Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle and there you have it.

I still need to add links to the other's in the group so that you can see all of their wonderful creations with this layout too! I am so glad that you could stop by...Toodles! :D


ETA: I was able to add the "Blogger's Challenge" link to the right side of my blog. Please check it out to see what the other members of the group did for this challenge.
