Embellish Magazine, Background Stamping Challenge

As soon as SayDie saw this challenge, we had to jump on it!  Gray is the new neutral for fall and the yellow color combination is the perfect compliment to the fabulous color.  This challenge is geared towards background stamping and this truly was a challenge.  We used a damask stamp to stamp the background onto black cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The idea was to go with simplicity, something not overwhelming or extremely busy.  The simple single rose was stamped in StazOn and we paper pieced the rose in yellow on the stamped rose that had been stamped onto white cardstock.  Hope you enjoy the card.  Just a reminder, if you stop by, please comment, we love to read feedback from visitors; and if you like what you see, please become a follower.  Thanks!!

Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #129

We purchased the birthday stickers about 2 weeks ago and have been dying to use them; and what a more perfect way that on a sketch challenge!  This card is ideal for a little one that's celebrating their very special day or even the adult that's a kid at heart.  If you visit the blog, please leave a comment; we'd love to hear from you.  Have a great weekend!
