Recreating Myself...

...well, my first uploaded card, anyway. After Kristin saw this post of mine from earlier this week she was inspired to go looking for her first upload. Then we chatted about the challenge and thought it would be fun to re-create our own first card and give it an updated look.

So here it is, my updated and recreated self. I love this layout and have done some similar over the years. I used the 5th Ave. Floral stamp set to stamp the flower images on the main panel and added the sentiment from Great Friend (yes, I love this little scripty "for you"). I did some stitching around the outside to create a fun border and finished it off with a ribbon tab and a corduroy button. The dsp I used is Urban Oasis. I challenge you to come do the same. It really is fun. Here are the full deets on the "official" challenge, over on the GSG Blog. Hugs, Lisa
