Sue Daly's Summer Challenge

Hello again! Sue Daly had a fun idea and since I have very few people frequenting my blog I thought I'd try it to get some new reader/viewers. So she sent me a beautiful card (the photo seriously doesn't do it justice) and supplies to make a creation of my choice. My favorite part is the gorgeous paper piercing!!! Amazing - I think you can at least see that detail in the crummy photo of mine. Go to her blog to see more of her work...but here's a little sampling:

Ok - here's my creation using supplies she sent me, besides the Pink Pirouette and Kraft cardstock, punches, and hemp. I also used stamp sets of my own including the brand new Inspired by Nature (grass), Flight of the Butterfly (small flower stamp), and Wow Flowers (Happy Birthday circle)as well as the oldie but goodie Short and Sweet. Ink used was VersaMark, Ruby Red, and Chocolate Chip. I tied the hemp through the button and stitched a stem (mostly covered by ribbon) for the large flower. I super heavily distressed the edge with a scissors - a skill I had to learn at Convention as the Cutter kit (with distressing tool) was no where in sight) - I thought it made it look rougher and more grass-like. FUN! The DSP, chipboard flower, hardware, ribbon, Old Olive & More Mustard cardstock were all sent to me by Sue.

Although I don't have much left over I am going to try to make another card or other creation using what is left of Sue's goodies. My family is coming to visit this weekend and next week is crazy so I don't know when it will happen but be on the lookout. I was pretty productive today and also made a card for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #18 so I'll be back in a sec with that! :)
