Rose to the challenge!


I love all the challenge blogs that are out there! What a great source of inspiration from all the amazing design team members out there! Im still only fairly new to this whole blog thing and I think it is wonderful that so many people give their time to inspire us to stretch out of our comfort zones.

Tonight I have managed to create a card that fits with five challenges.

Crafty Creations - Make Your Own Paper
Quixotic - Distressing (first time I have tried this)
Your Next Stamp - Going Dotty
Cute Card Thursday - Make Your Own
Crafty Catz - Spots

I had made this little envelope from Stampin Up Bella Rose designer series paper when I first got my new Big Shot and it has just been lying around on my desk since.

So tonight I decided to build my card around it.

The floral panel background is made by stamping Whisper White cardstock with Stampin Up's Rose Is a Rose stamp set with Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss ink. I then sponged around the edge with Rose Red.
