SBG1 challenge


Yea! I am finally done! I was afraid I wouldn't finish it. This is my take on the 1st SCS Group #1's challenge and also my first card I made for Heidi's cause (see here for more info on Heidi's cause). The challenge was to create a card using blue and black colors. I sponged blue over the white cardstock I used but for some reason my picture shows white :( I also colored the ribbon with my Tombott marker to make the white stripe blue, the picture faded out the blue. I used a Fourishes stamp set that I had never used before. The only hard part was cutting out those little flowers. If you look you can see I don't cut circles very well. LOL
Stamps: Flourishes Harlequin & Accessories, Stampendous Encouraging Words
Ink: Clear embossing ink, Marvy #30 blue ink, Tombott marker #515, and ColorBox Midnight
Accessories: Black EP, Clear EP, Black ribbon with white stripe found at Wal-Mart, and clear stickles.
Paper: Blue and black cardstock and black/white flower paper found at Hobby Lobby
