A New Challenge

I'm pretty excited! I've found a neat group of gals who have committed to making 100 cards in 100 days! ...and I'm joining them! I started last night. Working off a sketch from Cardmaps, I put together this card in about 20 minutes. Those that know me, will appreciate that this is not my usual I generally deliberate over each detail far too much...

Working with Twitterpated paper and the word Create from Creative Elements~thought my launch into the challenge should state my intention~ I paired Island Indigo with Baja Blue. I had fun dying some paper flowers with Red Riding Hood ink and when they were dry this morning, attached them and viola, the card completed and posted! 1 of 100! (It is sunny and gorgeous here this you get a nice shadow from the ribbon and a bit of the definition from the scalloped edge of the punch diminished...good trade off for a beautiful morning!)
One BIG difference for me in the challenge will be that I will be shopping (the others are dedicated to using up their stash...which I think is a great idea) Me, I'm so excited about the brand new Stampin'Up! catalogue, I'll be shopping up a storm! But I want to take on the challenge to use the stuff I'm busy ordering and loving. I want to not just think Stampin' but do Stampin'.
I was away for the weekend at a wonderful Creative Retreat...and I had such a good time playing with some different mediums, I'm inspired to continue creating and playing from that as everything is pointing to making more cards!
enjoy your sunny day!



  1. Great start!!! I downloaded the new SU catalog and there are at least three sets I would love to add to my collection, so I have GOT to keep going and get this challenge finished by my bday in late August so I can place an order. : )

  2. Lovely card to start the challenge with. Here's to a successful finish to quite a challenge.

  3. I love the Twitterpated paper...such a pretty card!
