Blogger's Challenge (Apr. 18th)

This past week's Blogger's Challenge was to use chipboard. I have tons of it and love it, but hardly ever use it. So, I was glad to get a chance to participate in this weeks challenge. My chipboard is where I stamped my message. It is from SU's On Board Accents. I sponged it with yellow chalk ink and then sponged the edges in orange chalk ink. My message is from Papertrey Ink's Simple Little Things set - the anniversary set they sent to anyone who purchased 12 or more stamp sets from this past year. It is a great versatile set. The message is actually all on one line, but I inked it up in 2 parts - first 'feel better' and stamped it, then 'soon' and stamped that below so it would fit on my chipboard piece. This is popped up on dimensionals.

I stamped the flowers twice. The second set I cut 3 of the flowers out and popped them up on dimensionals.

Supplies:
Stamps - Papertrey Ink (Women of Life; Simple Little Things)
CS - Whisper White (SU), Pumpkin Pie (SU), Basic Grey Gypsy Patterned Paper
Ink - Chalk Inks, Palette Noir
Other - Orange Brads, Chipboard (SU), Hole Punch, Pink Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Hope you had a great weekend!!
Stampin' Hugs,
Karen
