Challenge Card

Happy Tuesday! I've finally finished up some big assignments and was able to play along with some challenges today. It was so fun to create this card 'just because'.




I embossed some Vintage Cream cardstock for the base. Then I embossed a panel of Soft Stone cardstock for the bottom of the card. It's kind of hard to see the embossing in the photo...All of the stamps are Papertrey. I used a mix of 2011 Birthday Tags and Mat Stack 4.



The ruffled trim is Webster's, as is the stick pin. And the silver flowers are Prima.
This card actually meets three challenges this week. The color combo (bright pink, grey, cream) is from CR84FN. The ruffles are for The Shabby Tea Room. And the sketch is based off Mojo Monday. I'm especially excited because this is the first time I've gotten to play along with them.

Finally, I'll leave you with a proud mama moment. Ryan made his First Communion this past Saturday. Yes, I cried! (He kept telling me to stop and that I was embarassing him. I told him to get used to it.) It was really crowded so it was hard to get good pictures. I love this one of him coming in, even though it's blurry.



And here's one of the three of us. Again, it's not the perfect shot, but it carries wonderful memories.



Thanks so much for stopping by. And have a great day!

Beautiful card Anabelle! As I was publishing my post I noticed something bright pink on your blog post. I just posted a card for the same challenges. The photos are beautiful. I still remember my fist communion many years ago.

Precious Memories. Of all the things we teach our children, there is nothing as important as their relationship with Jesus Christ. Beautiful and precious photos.
