Late Post and a Challenge

Hi friends, I'm really posting late today. Got really behind in my chores around the house. So this messed with my day of crafting! Don't you hate when that happens?

Today I played along in a challenge the found while surfing the net, from a blog called Hand Stamped Sentiments. So I decided to give the challenge a try.

I like doing challenge's, because it helps me if I'm stuck and not sure what I want to create. So here is how I used this challenge.

I really used my Big Shot on this card! Can you tell? I also sponged ink on all the layers and I even sponged some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on the layers as well. The little flower is from the Spring Catalog. Its part of the Artisan Embellishments Kit on page 10. I had fun playing today, even if it is late.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Friendly Phrases
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette
Ink: Rose Red and Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Fan Textured Embossing Folder, Delicate Designs Folders, Large Scallop Edgelits, Floral Frames Framelits, Pink Pirouette Two-Tone Ribbon (Spring Catalog), Artisan Embellishments Kit and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint

  1. Vanessa your card is way WAY fabulous! I love all the sponging and the vintage feel and the colors are some of my most favorites. I see that you have been a demo since '97. I joined in '98 and it's been a blast. A big thank you for adding your fabulous card to our sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth
