Good morning and a Happy Monday to you, Stampers! I did something I have never done before today, create one card for two challenges. The first challenge was the Pal Paper Arts Challenge, which is a sketch:
The second challenge was the Create With Connie and Mary Color Challenge:
You would think that with all that work already done for me, putting a card together would be a breeze. It was not! I think I had a severe case of stamper's block yesterday. This card is what I came up with, and I continued to follow my recent cravings for vintage, though this project is not too fussy.
The background is Very Vanilla Card Stock which I ran through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I then lightly sponged with Basic Gray, Cajun Craze and Old Olive ink, and gave it a little spritz with the Color Spritzer Tool and a Basic Gray Marker. I used the Elements of Style Stamp Set as a background for both the Cajun layer and the Vanilla layer inside the oval frame.
