Anywho, it's Thursday and time for a new challenge from the Stampin' B's DT. This week Vicky Gould is our hostess and she is challenging everyone to make her own background using only stamps--no designer paper allowed. I've only been able to make one Easter card so far this year, and having no Easter-themed DP, this challenge to make my own was the perfect opportunity to grow my Easter card stash.
I stamped my backgrounds using a pretty Easter egg stamp I found in a dollar bin at Michael's last year. I recently found a package of Recollections gold cross stickers on clearance (also at Michael's) and was thrilled to use my first one on this card. I made the large ribbon rose from scratch but the two smaller ribbon flowers come from Offray.
- EtsyInspired #132: to be inspired by the wares of Etsy store Fresh Metal Jewelry. I was inspired by this beautiful white fabric flower necklace to make my white ribbon rose.
