Blogger Challenge

A group of stampers and myself are going to be doing blog challenges. I know - I have tons on my plate already, but I've always wanted to do a challenge with other bloggers, so I joined them! :) Of course, today was our first challenge posting and I have TONS of other things I need to do (ie: laundry, cleaning, getting ready for vacation), but I did the challenge today in between everything. I still have TONS of birthday cards that I was showered with to post as well. I can't wait to show you all of the awesome cards that came for me!!!

Ok - now for the challenge. We were to take the sample (of the elephant) on pg.10 of the SU Fall-Winter Preview Brochure 2007 and CASE the layout. We could change the colors and stamp sets, but the layout was to remain the same. We'll be posting our samples on Fridays.

Here is my CASE of the layout -

Supplies Used SU! unless otherwise Noted:

Stamps: Pick a Petal, Sincere Salutations
CS: Orchid Opulence, Pixie Pink, Certainly Celery, WW
Ink: Orchid Opulence, Pixie Pink
Other: Vintage Brad, Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, 1" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

This isn't the best image, but I'm still trying to figure out my digital. I got it awhile ago, but can't seem to get a good, clean image yet. The sentiment on the card says "Get Well Soon". I'm sending this to a friend whose been having some medical problems and thought this would help cheer her up.

Great minds think alike, I'm working my card now with the same set. Different idea though so we'll see what it looks like when it's complete.

Great job!

Great take on the challenge! I'm still learning out Digital Camera as well so don't loose hope. I would not have thought to use that big flower for the central image but it works! Ida

I love Pick a Petal--it works well for this challenge. Great card!
