Blogger Challenge, Week #6






The card on the left was our weekly blog challenge card which was to replicate the card in the Stampin'Up! Idea Book, p. 165


I had a tough time at first because I didn't have thick ribbon to use and the patterned paper I chose just didn't look right. Finally I decided to stamp my own paper.


I used Bud Basics, Little Flowers, Print Pattern stamps. Gable Green, Marigold Morning and Brocade Blue papers and inks. Ribbon is SU! retired. Rich Regals brads and I also used some stickles on the flowers.


The card on the right was inspired heavily by Debbie Fisher. I absolutely fell in the love with the card I had but don't have the Groovy Guava ink pad so went with some other colors instead.


Bud Basics stamp set, Certainly Celery, Real Red and Bashful Blue, Bold Brights brads
