Paper: scraps and vellum

Another fun challenge is the scrap paper and vellum card by Laura Bassen...here is my version:

This card uses the Hearts cover plate, scraps of Papertrey cardstock, vellum, clear sequins, and a triple-stacked sentiment from the Bloomin' Cute dies.

Thanks for looking!

Time to get back to blogging...


I finally retired in June of 2016, and have been "relaxing" for the last year!  I have still contributed to the Take Ten magazine, and the last one in Spring 2017 was the cover!! Yikes!  Since then, I have three cards coming out in the new issue, on newsstands September 1st, which I will post as soon as possible.

Since today is the first day of Stamp-a-faire 2017, I thought it was the best day to begin blogging again!  Here is the color scheme I chose:

1 inspiration

 and here is my take:    

Stamp set: Reasons to Smile
  Ink and cardstock: Papertrey Ink

More later!
