In Stamping Mode

Black and White and a splash of color!


That was the subject of the latest Play Date Cafe Challenge for an awesome chance at a prize of yummy Twinery twine!! I tell ya, this card took a while to make! I wanted to make my own custom patterned paper with a damask pattern...yes, that's not patterned paper up there! I actually used 3 sets from Technique Tuesday to create my pattern. The long bordered lacy line is from the set Vintage Lace set...my goodness it stamps sooo beautifully! The actual damask image is from the Damask set and finally, I grabbed an image from the Favorite Memories set to fill in the gaps. I love the way it turned out. :) My Thank You sentiment comes from the Little Sentiments set and that wraps up a whopping FOUR sets used on this card, LOL!! It's so nice to have a variety on hand and mix and match them up all together.

Ok, off to shower. I've been taking a Zumba class and it totally kicks my butt...but in a good way!! Look forward to it every week. :) Hope you have a wonderful week!!!

Totally love your card Melissa! I'm blown away by your own patterned paper creation ;)
I'm interested to hear you're loving the Zumba - I am trying to pluck up courage to do some exercise myself, and I have found a local Zumba class. Maybe I will have to give it a go! Eek! Hugs, Ruth S
