Blogger's Challenge (Feb. 15th)

The challenge this week for the Blogger's Challenge was to use the layout on pg. 42 (happy birthday card). I had this finished last night, but didn't feel good and never got a chance to post. Be sure to check out the other Challenge players - just click on the Blogger's Challenge icon and it will bring up the other player's blogs.

A bit about the card - I used SU textured card stock (first time for me) and LOVE it!! I love the added texture and look it gives to the card! I created the scallop using my slit punch (can't find my corner rounder). I unfortunately needed 2 sympathy cards this week.

Supplies:
Stamps: Serenity -
Verve Visual, Out on a Limb - Papertrey Ink
CS: Bordering Blue (textured), Sage Shadow, Elegant Eggplant, Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Going Grey, Elegant Eggplant
Other: Bordering Blue & Sage Shadow markers, Stampin Dimensionals, Stamping Sponge, Slit Punch, Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Purple Striped Ribbon

Nicely done. The textured card stock is really cool and Serenity is a perfect set for creating a Sympathy card.

I really like this card, Karen! I love the colors. I like the little bit of darker ribbon, darker cs behind the image & sentiment in the darker color...it's subtle, but it kinda "pops" too. Beautiful card!
