Love begins...

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Well.  I decided I had plenty of time to make another card today.  Little did I know that it would take...hours...literally.  Oh. My. Goodness.  I hope I'm not the only stamper this happens to.  Please tell me I'm not. 
Anyway.  I loved the colors at the CR84FN 36 Color Challenge.  They're so very pretty.  Take a look at the photos that Mona chose for this challenge.
Wow.  Beautiful, huh?  It's been some time since I created a vintage style card.  And I thought these colors were just right for the card I wanted to make.

Here is my take on the challenge:
Even though this card took hours to create (don't ask me why), I'm so pleased with the results.  I'll have to keep my post short.  I have to get up VERY early tomorrow morning, so I need to get off this computer.  Soon.  If you have any questions, please ask!  I'll be happy to provide details.
I'm so glad to stopped in to take a look!







Supplies:
card stock: stamper's select white (PTI), so saffron, kraft/crumb cake (SU)
