Bloggers' Challenge -- Week #41


How was your week? Mine went by so quickly....can't believe that it's Friday already...and that it's time again for a Challenge card! (Didn't get to post earlier this week...sorry! Will try to post more next week.)


Our Challenge this week was to replicate the card layout on Page 65 of the SU catalog. Simple, but not your ordinary layout. I'm still playing with my Essence of Love....just can't seem to put it away! I thought it would work really well with this layout....this card was just so simple, I'm almost embarassed to post for the Challenge! But, here it is. Enjoy....and thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Essence of Love
Inks: Basic Gray, Versamark
CS: Basic Gray, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White
Misc: Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Ribbon Slide from the Silver Hodpodge Kit (Occasions Mini), Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Coluzzel
ALL materials used for this card are from SU.

Now, I'm off to visit the other Bloggers who participate in the Challenges. (Click on the Bloggers' logo in the left column.) Hope you'll join me!
