Jean's Challenge

Yeah me!!! I got to stamp a little something tonight. I love the feeling of satisfaction when a card comes together. It took me a moment to work on this one. My friend Jean started her first of many challenges and I just HAD to play. Challenges are a great way for me to try something new and that's just what I did! I used new papers and stamp sets and just went for it. I think it turned out okay minus the uneven circles at the bottom...don't look too hard. I used a pencil eraser and dipped it in basic black ink and voila`...perfect circles..if you try this just line yours up better than mine. I learned this technique from my upline's upline, Gail...who by the way made it into the top 100 demonstrators and was recognized by Shelli. Go Gail! Anyway, I believe the rest of the card is self explanatory.

Card recipe:
Stamp sets: Fresh Cuts, Eastern Blooms, and Enjoy Every Moment
Cardstock: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, and Bella Rose dsp
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red, and Basic Black
Black ribbon, Vintage Brads (black)

Isn't This Cute???
I found this among my swaps and I absolutely adore it. The talented stamper did not leave their info for me to give credit where credit is due. The blue tab pulls out and allows a space for a message. This is a great idea for a quick make and take and/or a demonstratable card for a workshop. The wording didn't photograph very well, but it reads..."a little something." I just love, love, love it. I am thinking of so many things to do with this. Maybe tomorrow night:-)

Great card. Very pretty. I won't stare too hard at the circles... just kidding. Good job
