Ok.....yes, I am very far behind! But in an effort to catch up, here is my Blogger's Challenge from last week. We were to follow the card layout from Page 37 of the brand new Spring-Summer Catalog. (Have you seen it yet? It's beautiful and fabulous....check it out here!)
Not sure why, but I found this elegantly simple layout really difficult to "copy." Maybe, since I haven't had a chance to really stamp anything in a few weeks, I'm out of practice? Anyway, after many tries that ended in the trash can, here's what I came up with. Amazingly simple....so very easy......uses Designer Background Paper*.
This card features a super-simple Valentine's idea and uses just a single portion of the discontinued (from the Fall-Winter Collection) Petals & Paisley. I just spruced it up with some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. And I had a "eureka" moment: using the dotted stamp from the Three For You Punch Kit, I simply stamped the White Taffeta Ribbon with Regal Rose Classic Ink to give it the dotted pattern shown. How fun!
Thanks for your patience....and for stopping by! Be sure to check out the other Blogger's submissions.
