Blogger's Challenge #47: Layout challenge!


Welcome to the Blogger's Challenge this week. Our challenge was to be inspired by the layout on page 21 of the Occasions Mini (have I mentioned that they have extended this catty until June 30th? It's an awesome one to have a little longer!!!) Anywho...This is my take. I made mine a Father's Day card for my dad. I used Kraft cardstock (a favorite of mine!) Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue and Blue Bayou. I used the paper piercer and Mat kit to put the holes in and handstitched using the Linen Thread. The stamp sets are Lovely as a Tree and Short and Sweet.

***NOTE: All Stampin' Up! materials were used to make this card and no materials were harmed in the making of this card!

Thanks for looking!
