The Stamp Spot August Challenge

The Challenge at the Stamp Spot for August is orange, leaves and polka dots. I had to play along.

http://thestampspot.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/august-challenge-spots.html

I started my card with a green base of cardstock. I then added orange cardstock embossed using Cuttlebug Swiss dots, a small piece of green cardstock and two pieces of SU Just add Cake paper. I then added CC Design leafy branches and a felt flower cut from X Cut Blooms die. I added a green button from October Afternoon sidewalks secured with embroidery cotton. Finally I added a tag from PTI tiny tags stamped with SU Tangerine Tango ink and Versafine onyx black ink.

Hope you have had a great week.

Cheers

    1. Glad you like my card. I suppose that is why we call them challenges – so we step out of our comfort zone – that’s one reason I do them anyway, otherwise I think I would be tempted to use the same/similar sketch. You know fall into the same pattern all the time.
