Another Stamping Around Challenge

Waltzingmouse Stamps is hosting another contest over at the Stamping Around blog and this time it is an inspiration challenge chosen by Anya. I have been thinking about this one for a while now and today I finally had time to create something (just in the nick of time since the challenge ends tomorrow).

I wasn't 100% sure where I was going with this card, but I do know that I need to find a better adhesive for lace. It was driving me nuts the way it kept moving around on me (that it why it looks so wonky--LOL). This card is very different from my norm, but I'm really enjoying using these challenges as a way to branch out.

I started with a base of Lemon Tart and strips of Lavender Moon, New Leaf, and Raspberry Fizz. I stamped each one with Fresh Snow ink using some cute Studio G stamps from the $1 bin at Michael's. I added two types of lace, some soft blue velvet ribbon, skinny hot pink dotted ribbon, and ivory decorative trim that is called "mini gimp braid" (that's what the roll says) from Wrights Creative Classics line. The sentiment is from PTI's Paper Tray set and it is stamped in Hawaiian Shores onto linen vellum.

Thank you for checking out my card. Be sure to check out the rest of the entries at .
