Saturday's Inspiration Challenge on SCS and also for the Etsy Inspired Challenge. I loved the damask bags/bedding, so I went with it! I also admire how Dawn McVey works with this particular design. With that in mind, I emulated her work. But I really like the look of this card.
Limited Supply Challenge on Christmas Day. The challenge was to use leftover wrapping paper, tags, bows etc. I found this cute little snowman tag from one of SweetPea's packages. Even though I am sick of Christmas cards, there was no other place to go with this one. It's ca-ute and seriously, took less than 10 minutes. While I was raiding the trash, I snagged three other cutesy tags and will have to whip up a few more Christmas cards for next season.
Ways to Use it Challenge. Julia took it easy on us and just made the challenge about using a background stamp. I really, really like the Clean and Simple Stamping blog, so I searched through it for a sketch and came up with this one ;) I just know I will need to start on my thank you's and my daughter's thank you notes soon, so I made this into a thank you card. I tried a couple of techniques on this card too. I made the cardstock strip that looks like a ribbon with the faux suede technique and some faux stitching.
