Blog Challenge # 1

I made this card for the Splitcoast blogger group Challenge that Sara was kind enough to host. She challenged us to create a card using polka dots and ribbon. I whipped out my new stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs and went to work. I have had this set for several months but had not taken the time to play around with this beauty! If you like it, go on over to Our Daily Bread Designs and check out the other stamps. This is a new stamp company that is doing a great job at filling a niche market. I have four of their stamp sets and wish for more!

I stamped the medium cross and verse on white card stock with night of navy ink. I made sure to stamp an extra cross so I could cut it out and pop it off the page. Then I glued the metal flower to the center of the cross and added a rhinestone. This flower is a new brad from Stampin’ Up! I just cut the ears of f of it before I glued it down.

Here is a list of the rest of the products I used to complete the card.

Card Stock- SU Rose Red, SU Prints pack designer series paper

Offray Picot edge Ribbon

SU Metallic pencil

Martha Stewart border punch

Foil Corners that I purchased in a book shop while in Ireland. Sorry ladies, I do not know where they can be found in the US.

I look forward to the next blog challenge! Thanks for looking!
