Happy for you


That's me--happy for my friend LeAnne, who is Featured Stamper over at SCS today! Congrats, LeAnne--you so deserve it! I finally got my Papertrey Chicks challenge done for this week 'cause I'm running out of time--we get a new one tomorrow! Eek! So, this is the card I chose to CASE. I changed it from a square card to an A2, used buttons instead of punched stars, used lace and vintage seam binding instead of ribbon, and moved the sentiment to the bottom. And, while I used the same stamp set, I used different images for my focal image. I think it's enough different, but still recognizable. Here's the inspiration piece for my Papertrey Chicks challenge (color are to be Kraft, Pure Poppy, and white).



Not much else to explain about this card except I used Kraft for my base with a layer of Pure Poppy, then a layer of some gingham print I got from a craft store. Then I wrapped some lace around and made a fluffy bow with vintage seam binding that I got here. The images, from Vintage Picnic, were stamped on an MFT Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers, cut out, and popped up. A few buttons, a sentiment from Vintage Picnic Sentiments, and it was done!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll visit the Featured Stamper thread and leave LeAnne some love.

And, this is the last day to enter for my blogaversary blog candy. Get the deets here.
