1,2,3: DT Challenge

dtchallenge0809

Hello, it is time for another DT Challenge! This one is exciting because we have our two new members that joined us this month (Gretchen and Megan) doing their first Challenges with us. How exciting!

I’ll also have some new stamp news for you next week…what could all that be about? Hmmm…

Today’s challenge was 1,2,3. One sentiment stamp, 2 embellishments and 3 layers. I had a really hard time only being able to use 2 embellies!!

So for my card I used the yellow and black gingham ribbon and one of the awesome felt flowers from Basic Grey’s June Bug Woolies. I loved using this flower because it came with the bling already attached so in my book (and Challenge Coordinator Deb may disagree with me!) that only counts as one embellishment but it packs a lot of punch! Maybe it is cheating…what do you think?

I turned my sentiment from All Occasions into the stem for the flower and stamped it in Viridian Green Palette.

Now, go check out the rest of the DT and see what they’ve come up with! By the way, I’ve recently updated the DT page on the store site with little bios and pics so you can get to know them a little bit better! Go have a look and while you’re there be sure to look at the NEW section of the store. There are so many new goodies and more are getting added practically every day! Lastly, if you’re not signed up for the newsletter, you an do that there right on the homepage.
