I am such a dork!

I went to do my post for the Addicted to Stamps and More design to that I am on and I discovered I had done the wrong challenge!  What a dork!  So I had to really hurry up and make this card. Oops!   The sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps. They are generously offering you a pack of 7 digi's from their store!!!

The challenge this week is to do a clean and simple card, so I really lucked out with this one.
This embossing folder is one of my favorites for doing a background I cut my brushed silver cardstock to 3 3/4" x 5 1/4," embossed it and then cut it into 3 strips that are 1 1/4" x 5 1/4."  It really makes for an easy but elegant background!  I had just a tiny bit of silver embossing powder left for my sentiment, but a little goes a long ways so I still have more left over. It's one of those things I always end up taking off of my order because there are so many new and fun items that I want instead!

Stamp Set: Seasonal Sayings

  5. Wow, that embossing folder is gorgeous! And dividing the panels into three really gives it a unique look and lets a little more of the pink show - fabulous design! Loll xx

  6. Great use of this embossing folder. It was never one of my favourites so I gave it to mum (who loves it). It looks wonderful on this card xx
