What You Got Challenge

Happy Thursday!


A couple of weeks ago Joanne from Just A Little Something issued Nancy from iSTAMP and I a challenge to use WHAT YOU GOT. We decided on Bali Breeze Designer Paper and to make it a card that would fit in a business sized envelope. This is what I came up with late last night but I'll get to that in a minute...haha!
Be sure to check out the other girls blogs to see what they created! We hope that you will play along with us. If you upload to SCS please put WYG in the keywords so we can find your creation! Then to come back here with a link either to your SCS card or your blog, we'd love to see what you create!

Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment; Cardstock: Rose Red, Old Olive, WW and Bali Breeze DP(both sides); Inks: Rose Red and Old Olive Markers; Accessories: Flower Fusion, Silver Brad, 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain, Corner Rounder Punch, Dimensionals


Now had this been a test....I would have failed! LOL! I didn't follow the original instructions. You see here I made an A2 sized card. Thought I'd show you anyway. The supplies for this card are the exact same...cool eh?! I had made a couple other creations as well with different Bali Breeze paper but I'll show those later on since they were the wrong size too ;)

Thanks for stopping by today!

I like the idea of business envelope size cards - less drama finding envelopes - ROTFL Very nice!

Wow, beautiful cards!!! Love everything about them :)

Nancy Riley said...

Dawn, your sample(s) for the challenge are AMAZING!!!! I love the scallop border(s) and the bold Old Olive ribbon(s)! (lol!)

Seriously though ..... you think of so many small details that I would never think of ... like making the "n" and the "o" a different color than the other letters. Brilliant!

Beautiful job, my friend!
