This weekend I had the time and mojo needed to make a couple of cards and join in a couple of challenges! Great achievement all things considered! The two cards I made I will post next week as they are birthday cards for my mum and niece, and as mum checks my blog I don't want to spoil the surprise. I joined in two challenges with this card Stamping 411 and Dynamic Duos, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive were two of my favourite colours when I first joined Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator but I don't use them as much as I used to, and certainly not together.
I tipped the 411 layout onto its side and added the sentiment window - the window is cut from the DSP and the sentiment is stamped onto the base card stock. I have used the Fun Flowers Die for the bottom two layers of the flower, one in card stock and the other in Newsprint DSP stamped with Creative Elements. The top layer of the flower is stamped with the flower from Button Buddies embossed in white. I am totally loving white embossing powder and the crisp bright white effect it gives you. The base layer of DSP is actually from the Christmas papers Letters to Santa.
