Hi there! Today I visited another challenge blog called MojoMonday. I decided to use the layout for a Thank You card to give to someone I don't even know! I was GIVEN a ticket to see Bon Jovi tomorrow night! The girl who bought the tickets can no longer make it, so she gave hers to my friend. My friend called me and surprised me with it! So the card is to thank the original ticket owner...I'm sure I'll be even more appreciative AFTER the concert! For the card, I used a violet colored cardstock for the base. The background is a wavy plaid patterned paper in cool colors, and I used white to stamp the images on. It doesn't show in the scan, but I sponge dabbed the ink into the main image so there are hints of blue and violet in the image. I love the colors favorites! I used stamps from Stampin' Up's Merci and Much Appreciated sets. I used some sheer purple ribbon and 3 pewter square brads. I hate that the scanner slightly distorts the image, but overall I'm pleased with the result! Thanks for looking!

Hello! Today I decided to surf the web looking for different challenge sites. I came across the Arty Girlz Challenge Blog This week they had a sketch as the challenge so here is my interpretation! I made a 5 1/2" card. I used some striped paper in citrus colors, certainly celery cardstock and rub ons from Stampin' Up and white cardstock and some buttons and brads as embellishments. I used the adorable stamp from a Stampin' Up set. The picture is showing that the ribbon edges are frayed worse than they actually are. I admit, not one of my best pieces of my work but I do like the colors! Thanks for stopping by!
