I'm home today because of a bad snow storm here in Buffalo, NY. We have our first SNOW DAY!!! I was so happy to get the call at 5:50 a.m. that school was closed! I wasn't feeling well today and was glad to be home! So I'm stamping all day! Woohoo!!
I'm posting this card for a couple of challenges. First of all, today's Limited Supplies challenge on SCS (LSC199) was to do a card mostly in blue. (OK, I just realized that this was a Limited Supplies challenge and not a Ways to Use It challenge. I was supposed to use only one non-paper embellishment. I used two...the ribbon and glitter dots. I'm entering it anyway!) So I went in search of blue paper and found quite a few sheets of this shimmery textured blue paper I got at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, eons ago! It wasn't sturdy enough for a base, so I placed it on top of PTI's white (the only white I'll use as a base). Ialso found this pretty Offray ribbon in my stash that matched so nicely. Then I found out about the Festive Flourishes Friday challenge on Silke's blog (My Life), and decided to play. It was similar to today's WTC to use blue, but also to use a Flourish stamp. I only have this one, Flourished Christmas, which I love, so I decided to go with the blue, white and silver theme. I stamped the tree and sentiment in Versamark and embossed it in silver (it may look like gold, but it's silver). I also used SU's brushed silver cardstock. The layout is from this week's Sketch challenge on SCS (SC207). I just turned it the other way to accommodate my image. I placed two white glitter dots in the bottom corner and the sentiment was punched with nestabilities. Very easy card to reproduce. I hope you are all snug and safe today if you are experiencing any inclement weather. Enjoy your weekend! I have another post below, so be sure to scroll down!
