Scrappy Saturday Challenge #24 Blog Hop

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Good morning!  You should be arriving here, for the blog hop, via Wee Memories, for another Scrappy Saturday Challenge.  The design team left it wide open with Challenge #24: Clean and Simple (CAS) and/or Tags.
So, I reached out to The Playdate Cafe's Challenge #48 for a little color inspiration...
and came up with this.
I started this card by machine stitching, with gray-threaded, straight stitches, a double frame, around the edges of the floral, patterned paper, before adhering it to the Basic Gray, cardstock, card face. 
I, then, stamped the letters, in Elegant Eggplant ink, on a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock; glittered just the "h" and "i" letters to create my "hi" sentiment...
tore it across the top; embellished it, across the bottom, with a punched strip of Old Olive cardstock; and adhered it, over the floral patterned paper, near the bottom of the card face.
A little, bright green, velvet ribbon, tied in a bow, just right of center, completes the look.
Now, it's your turn, so get creating!  You have until 11:59 pm PST, next Friday, October 1st, to link up your entry for a grand prize of a $10 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!
This is my last Saturday guest designing for Wee Memories.  It has been a super, fun month; and I feel, extremely, blessed and honored to have had the opportunity to work with such a fabulously talented group of individuals.  Thank you, again and again, Jenny!

From here, you're heading over to check out the sweet Vera Yates' creation.  Be sure to leave everyone a comment along the way.  We all love hearing from our readers!  Have fun, and thanks so much for stopping by!
