Truthfully, I didn't expect to be able to participate in this week's Challenge....but I am!....I was really tired of tying all those bows on the wedding programs and needed a break! So, I headed down to my stamp room and this is what I came up with. Maybe not my best work, but it does fit the Challenge and it was a welcome break from all the monotony of making the same thing over and over again!!
For this sample, I stamped the flower directly on the Whisper White card base, using Taken with Teal....on my screen it looks more like Tempting Turquoise, but I promise I really didn't cheat!! For the centers, I stamped on a white scrap in Crushed Curry and punched out the centers, then layered over the stamped teal flowers. Then I added in a little sprinkle of Real Red.....using Itty Bitty Backgrounds.....I've had that set FOREVER!!! It's an old standby and one I probably couldn't do without!!
Although I tried to keep with all current items, I failed....the Happy Birthday stamp in the center is from last year's catalog and that was stamped onto a Kisses Love Note from the Occasions Mini, and since I still have a ton of those buttons from a few years back, they were used as well. But, I used that brand-new embossing folder, Square Lattice from the Summer Mini!
