Feeling Cozy

Hi all! I have a late post because I was waiting to participate in a Wednesday challenge. I did just one today - Color Throwdown. I love the colors they throw at you to use each week! The challenge this week is to used Always Artichoke, Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip. Such rich colors.


I dusted off my much neglected Guidelines stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I used the little flower from another Papertrey Ink set, Limitless Labels. These two sets created by background and then cut the scallop out with my nesties die, added the ribbon and then adhered to a chocolate chip base. I used the teapot and sentiment from Unity June KOM. Really super simple card - I can't take credit for it, I saw this on a You Tube video, here. I created the sentiment mounting with a Martha Stewart border punch and then to tie in the little holes from the border punch, I did a bit of paper piercing in the scallop window.

I hope you enjoy my card. Thanks for stopping by.



Oh, a word about MyGrafico Challenge blog - there's another great give-away, just make a "Sweet" card featuring candy to enter to win a super cute Back to School digi-stamp set.
