Hello! Just wanted to share a card I made for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18. I just love her challenges...she comes up with the best color combos that I would never think of on my own. And somehow they always seem to work. :) It's been a while since I've participated in her challenges and I've really missed it, so I'm glad to finally be back. Here's my card...
SUPPLIES: Stamps - Hero Arts Birthday Sayings, Papertrey Ink Text Style, Papertrey Ink Fancy Flourishes, Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics; Cardstock - Papertrey Ink; Ink - Versafine Vintage Sepia, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz, VersaMagic Tea Leaves; Other - Hero Arts Olive Green Gemstones, EK Success Corner Rounder (for scallop border), sewing
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

My First Entry

Hi and welcome to my blog! This is my first entry, so I just wanted to do a little test to make sure everything is working ok. And since I'll usually be sharing cards and projects that I create, here's a simple card I made to start things off. The flower is made using the Cuttlebug Flower Dies and then I just did a little folding and distressing to add some texture.
Stamps - Hero Arts Everyday Sayings; Patterned Paper - We R Memory Keepers; Cuttlebug Flower Dies; Memories Black Ink; Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper; EK Success Circle Punch; sewing
