My Sample for Super Saturday Challenge

I hadn't posted this because I wanted the challenge and the interview to stay on top. Hopefully what I think I can do works. Otherwise, please page down to see the interview.

I cased the card layout from one of Tami Mayberry's cards that she showcased in a recent blog post. It was so easy, so simple and still very cute. It is a true 42 cent postage stamp card! No ribbon, no bling, just clean and simple. MSB's Shop Gal gives it all the class it needs.

The base is whisper white. Then I cut some scraps to 1 1/4 x 3 of Mellow Moss and Almost Amethyst and ran through the Cuttlebug with different folders. Then distressed the edges a bit. I colored Shop Gal with Primsacolor Markers (Violet Mist, Eggshell, Limepeel, Driftwood and Light Mocha. Hair color is Copics Raw Silk). I then matted her to black so that she stands out.

Be sure to visit Joni and Gabby's blogs for their creations. And please leave Gabby a little prayer for her Mom.

When you upload to SCS use keywords BLOGC8 and leave a comment so we can ooooh and awww!

This is pretty Mel! Check out Tenia's blog, there's a sketch challenge that would work really well with your card. I don't know if it's NVR with the image, but go peek! :D

Awesome job on this very mailable (is that even a word?)card! I have a terrible time staying in the first class stamp rate, but this is great inspiration. Great colors and I really like the CB texture on the panels!
