Blogger's Challenge #29: Layout Challenge!

***Edited to add: I thought that I could link you to individual pages of the catalog but I can't! (or don't know how!) So, I've added the page numbers of the products I've talked about in this article! This way, when you get to the catty online, just drag the slide under the catty to the page you want to see!

The challenge for this week was to base our card on the "Save the Date" card on page 37 of the Spring-Summer Collection.



My card is a little different for me. It's slightly shabby chic meets clean and simple. The colors were based on an idea I got from my friend and AWESOME upline...USE THE NEW RUB-ONS STAMPIN UP HAS TO OFFER ON RIBBON!!!! Thank you, Lisa!!!! (Rub-Ons on page 182.) I used an image and words from Eastern Elegance. Each set of Rub-Ons is available for $10.95 and they are VERY cool!

I used Chocolate Chip satin ribbon from the Theater Ribbon Originals, Double-Stitched Soft Sky ribbon, and Blue Bayou and Groovy Guava Cardstock. The only ink used was Chocolate Chip. To finish the look, I stamped the flower image from A Beautiful Thing stamp set. To add a little more depth, I stamped the Paisley background on the Groovy Guava and Blue Bayou pieces.

Thanks for looking!
