I am beginning my blogging adventure with a card challenge!! I know, bold right? Well that is who I am, crazy and bold! I have spent a lot of time reading and admiring other people's blogs and cards and thought, why cant I do that? Well here I go!
My first ever blog post will exhibit my most recent card I created specifically for the Unity Stamp Company's monthly challenge. With this said, after creating this card and surfing other amazing blogs I found a few more challenges I though I should enter, so I did.
In the Unity Stamp Company challenge you were able to pick whether you wanted to follow a color scheme, a card design sketch, or a scrapbook page sketch. The only real rule was that you had to use a Unity Stamp Company stamp. With that said, I convinced my loving husband that I needed a new stamp set, OH DARN!
Once I got the awesome "Bright Happy You- by Lisa Arana" stamp set from the Unity Stamp Company in my hands I began to create. I chose to follow both the color scheme and the card design sketch. I used the rose stamp and the "happiness looks beautiful on you" stamps from my new set. I embossed the card background with my Sizzix Bigshot using the Stampin' Up "Perfect Polka Dots"embossing folder. I also embossed the rose in the center of the card to give it a little more texture. The ribbon I used is the ribbon used on my wedding invitations five years ago!
I went a little out of my comfort zone with the color scheme. I am mostly a plain color, reds, black, brown, and white kinda gal so this was really fun for me.
I would like to link this card up with a few Challanges
