This was a project I submitted for a Splitcoaststampers challenge. It was a “Words Only – Clean & Simple” challenge so I submitted it without the bow to meet the challenge requirements and then added the bow later to meet “my requirements” lol!!
For this project I used a sheet of BoBuuny’s “Little Miss” collection and Stampin Up’s Groovy Guava . The inks are Stampin Up’s “Chocolate Chip”, “Old Olive” & “Calypso Coral”. The embellishments are Kaisercraft’s self-adhesive Pearls and Stampin Up’s Whisper White Ribbon. Both sentiments are from Stampin Up, the front is the “Pursuit of Happiness” set and is embossed with SU! white embossing powder and my Versamark pad; the inside was stamped twice using the “Short & Sweet SU set, it was stamped first with SU “Whisper White Craft ink & then my Versamark pad. The Dies used were Spellbinder’s “Scalloped Circles” and “Circles”.
Tip of the Day: Sometimes challenges are great in pushing you to learn new techniques or even teaching you a thing or to about yourself. This one taught me that I don’t always believe that less is more. Personally I felt the card was missing something when I stuck to the challenge guidelines but instead of ignoring the challenge I completed it, submitted the card and then went back and added the bow I wanted there. Sometimes being rebellious is fun lol!! ;0P
With the bow added…..
