Stamp Club Challenge - Card #2

Here is the second card I did for the Stamp Club Challenge. The mat and patterned strip are scraps I had left over from cutting lollipop holders at Valentine's day for my friends daughters class. The burgundy cardstock is Stampin Up as is the scalloped border punch.

The image mat papers are from the papers we were given *okie wonders if she should tell her bloggies to scroll down so they can see what she is talking about in case they missed it*. You might need to scroll down so you can see what I am talking about if you missed my post about the Stamp Club Challenge. I used one of the journaling blocks and colored the outside edge with a Stampin Up Bravo Burgundy marker.

The stamped image and sentiment is from a hostess set I got at my Stampin Up party. I chose to stamp the sentiment directly on the flower image and I think it turned out well. You can click if you want to see it close up. I really wasn't sure how that lime green was going to look, but I really like how it seemed to make the image pop!

Here you can see that I pop dotted the stamped image. I did add a piece of chipboard under it because the paper was a little thinner than I cared for and was afraid it would be squishy *okie doesn't think she got enough sleep because she sounds silly to herself*. I tied ribbon through the button. I like using ribbon with buttons if the holes are big enough. If you want to try this just cut your ribbon at a long angle and thread it through.

Stay tuned for more Stamp Club Challenge cards coming your way! *okie cracks up laughin and thinks she really does need to go back to bed for a little while*
