Aging Process

Happy Monday!  I am sure this is the last Monday I'll say for awhile as it is back to school for us here tomorrow.

The challenge this week at Scrap Tiffany is to use 'no pattern paper'.  Are you up for it?  With all the fun papers out there this can be a challenge.

I used the Skipping Stones sketch for this week:

The color challenge from Color Throwdown:
 The Etsy Inspired shop this week is Glamasauraus and I chose this piece as my inspiration, don't you just love that icing?!


For my card I also used some Skipping Stones stamps, love this chocolate one called Chocolate Volume #2, so many cute things on it.  The saying on the inside says, 'that may not be true, but do we dare take the chance' - love it!  I put some glaze on the yellow paper so that it looks more like a real glaze.  The background text is Unity.


Now why don't you give the challenge a try, let's see what you can do with no pattern paper, link up at Scrap Tiffany.

Hi Laurel,

What a lovely card! The sentiment is just perfect of course and don't we all love to believe that! ;-) Like a lot the yellow ribbon to the top with the bow in it, very nice!

Love,
Wendy
