New things to come!

I am in the process of planning an Open House for the Summer Catalog.  I am also planning a card camp the following Saturday!  I'm so excited to be doing both and am busy working on displays for both to please check back for sneak peeks of artwork!  Tracey, my sister-in-law and fellow CTMH Consultant and I are also making plans for a School Day's Scrapbook Workshop that will produce an album with 28 finished pages and includes True-fit Folio pockets  (to hold artwork and report cards), and pocket pages for up to 12 snapshots!  It will be a wonderful workshop to focus all our memorabilia and school photos in one album!  I'm so excited about all these new activities so watch for new posting with sneak peeks to come!

New week, new challenge...

Terms of the Heart 2 Heart challenge...
This is a 1/2/3 challenge. Here are the requirements:

*Use 1 stamped image (not 1 set, but 1 image)
*Use 2 different patterned papers
*Use 3 embellishments - these can be 3 of the same thing or 3 different things

I wanted to make a simple card that could be used as a sympathy card.  I decided to pull the purple from the bella paper and highlight it with this stamp.  It is actually stamped on the paper, stamped on a separate paper and popped up so there is more dimension than you see.  I used ribbon as a feminine touch and then used bigger brads fed through button holes in the bottom right corner.  I wish I had some pansy purple accessories that I could use in that corner, but alas, that color somehow as eluded my collection,  so I chose to blend rather than highlight.  I've included a couple of close ups and a picture of the inside. (Sorry the inside is a little blurry.)

Card size:  8" x 3 1/2:, Originals pattern: Puzzle Backdrop (p 91)
Products all CTMH (unless otherwise noted):  Paper: Colonial White CS, Pansy Purple CS, Bella B/T;  Stamps:  Treasure Life (d1306), TLC (c1364) Verve plain jane (inside); Ink: Petal, Pansy Purple, Cocoa, Colonial White ; Accessories: summer buttons, Chocolate bigger brads, Olive organdy ribbon: Other; Sewing Machine, pop dots, bone folder for scoring lines, Ek success edge punch.
