Elegant River of Life

The color challenge this week on SCS was to use black, white and river rock. This color combo is elegant and offers the effect of calmness. I used black embossing powder on the flower and the black card stock background.

...and many more!

Make a wish on three! Three challenges for this one card. First I used two different designer papers from Stampin up for Monday's challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Then I used the Sketch layout on Wednesday's challenge. And if I really reach I can count this as Thursday's way to use it (music) with the song "Happy Birthday to you" The second picture shows a little message on the inside of the card. "...and many more".

Happy Stamping!

Always navy

On splitcoaststamper's web site they have a weekly sketch challenge. This is great to help me try new layouts. I stamped with Stampinup's stamp set Always and I also used my cuttlebug for the navy background layer.

thank you bottle hanger

I was surprised this door hanger or in this case a bottle hanger was so easy to complete. This was on the splitcoaststamper web site. I also used it for the challenge to use your own signature (or writing). I wrote "thank you for" and stamped "everything" from the always stampin up set.
