Hi friends! This is such a great month for me!!! I've been sooooo lucky! I won another challenge today. The Verve December Challenge, and the prize they were giving out is their January release. I've always wanted to try Verve Stamps but just never got around to it. Now I can FINALLY use them on my cards!!!! Yay!!! I was sooo surprised and happy that I literally started jumping and then ran out to tell my husband the great news. He was laughing a little because I was sooo excited. But then who wouldn't be?! Hahaha! :)
Good news aside, I have a card for all of you tonight. It's for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #62. Here's their inspiration photo and color combination.
Here's my take on the challenge. I concentrated on my kraft cardstock and I put in little bursts of color here and there. My Mat Stack 2 Collection finally came in the mail. (Thank you Julie!!!) It was a Christmas gift from my sister! :) I also used some of my new stamp sets that arrived yesterday. I stamped fancy flourishes on the upper right and lower left corners of my card base. I used chocolate chip and very pink. Then I stamped music scores on vintage cream cardstock and punched the corners with a Martha Steward punch. The Mat Stack 2 collection stamp I used here is my favorite out of all the stamps in that set. Although I must they they're ALL gorgeous! I tried to keep this simple. I hope you like it! Happy New Year to everyone!!! See you all next year!!! Haha! I mean tomorrow! :) Good night!
