Blogger's Challenge (Sept. 14)


This week's challenge was to use something for inspiration and create a card based on that. I took a picture of my card next to what I used as inspiration. :) I needed a birthday card for my nephew, so I went with this. Simple, but that is what I was going for - it is going to a 4yr old boy mind you. :D

Supplies:
Stamps - A Muse
CS - WW, Basic Black, Certainly Celery DSP
Ink - Palette Noir, Certainly Celery
Other - Mega/Giga Scallop Oval Punches, Stampin Dimensionals, Markers, Stamping Sponge

Be sure to check out the other Blogger Challenge Players for their creations -------->
