I always love getting to stamp along with friends, even if it's virtually. My stampy friendsBecky, Jackie, and I decided to play along in our own challenge just for fun!
We like to keep it simple, without a lot of restrictions. So that's what we did. Here's what we came up with.
Something Old (use something that you haven't used in over a year)
Add some texture
and...........Here's my card.
My Something new is the sweet Doodle Garden stamp just released from MFT. I can't get enough of these cuties. This one is calledTake The Plunge. I used the "keep cool" sentiment, since it is soooo stinkin' HOT here in the midwest. I'm not complaining, though....I'd rather it be hot than cold any day.
My something old is the cute tag element. It's a PTI die, calledTag Sale#5, and it's been collection dust long enough. I love the shape of this and thought it was a fun way to show off some of the pretty Atlantic paper. I stamped the sentiment right on top with the Crisp Cantaloupe ink from SU.
My texture is the burlap. I cut a rectangle and attached it to some Pink Lemonade cs and then gave it a little more stability with a quick wonky stitch around the edges.
I also pulled out my favorite Blueprints 3 and used a few of the pierced elements from that Die-namics set.
I can't wait to see what the other girls did. Come follow me to their blogs so we can check out their take on the Friendly Challenge.
