Blogger's Challenge (Mar. 14)
I'm really late posting this week's challenge - I was hoping to find time to do it, but it just never panned out. So, I hadn't posted this card and thought I would use it. :) This week's challenge was to create a birthday card. I actually made this card awhile back for another challenge on Purple Faerie Paper Crafts (blog) and (yahoo).

The background was created by using a brayer and 2 different Craft Ink Spots (Bordering Blue and Elegant Eggplant). I used the SAB set So Many Scallops as the focal point to the card.

All SU! Supplies Used:
Stamps: So Many Scallops (SAB set)
CS: Bordering Blue, Elegant Eggplant, WW
Ink: Bordering Blue Craft Spot, Elegant Eggplant Craft Spot
Other: Scallop Circle Punch, Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads, Markers - Elegant Eggplant, Bordering Blue, & Summer Sun, Stampin' Dimensionals, Brayer, Mat Pack (for brad placement), 1/16" Circle Punch

With Sympathy

I needed a Sympathy card last month for a co-worker and pulled out my Out on a Limb set from Papertrey Ink. I wanted a simple design - sympathy cards always seem hard to me, so simple is always best.

Out on a Limb
CS: Papertrey Ink Select White, SU Fall Flowers DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Summer Sun
Other: Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to have some more current things to post soon - we've been sick here again and thus I've had no energy to do much of anything. I'm planning on changing that though - I NEED to stamp to keep my sanity!!! :)
