The Bold and Beautiful Challenge

I've been gone a couple days, but I'm back! My husband & I went to see Joel Osteen in Columbus, OH this weekend. It was a great time! My little one stayed with my mother overnight for the first time. He did great! I was a wreck as we drove away. :)

Anyways, are you a fan of card challenges? They seem to be everywhere these days from Splitcoaststampers, to scrapbook stores, to personal blogs. I personally am not a big fan of card challenges. When I create something, I like to be all my own from scratch! It's like a personal challenge for me, sometimes torture (hee hee). Silly, I know! However, I understand there are times where you sit there with all these great supplies and don't have a clue what to do with them. That is where challenges can be helpful.

The Stampin' Up! group I belong to has weekly challenges primarily based from Splitcoaststampers. Last week we used SC225. I'm not a faithful participant, but I do try. Here was what I came up with.
I used the bold and beautiful Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! I paired it up with Whisper White & Old Olive cardstock. The white behind the patterned paper really pops the color. The stamp I used, Elegant Thank You, can be found on the last page of the current catalog. I used Pink Passion ink for the stamped image.

Have a wonderful Sunday and stop back soon! Take care.
