Just Believe

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I think I read somewhere in blogland that the stamp set, Just Believe was that blog person's new favorite.  I think I may have to agree.  The wispy flowers, the practical sentiments and that cool shaped block (which, by the way, is just screaming for a coordinating punch!) are really so versatile.  Although I've been playing with it quite a bit over the last few days, I think this is the first card I've posted using it.

I decided to use the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge this week (with a little poetic license for the pointy #5 panel).  I can't resist their sketch challenges designed by Margaret Moody.  Her sketches always seem to evoke a clean and simple feeling, even when they have multiple layers.  Now that's a knack, I say to myself!

And for the first time, I participated in the Inkspirations color challenge.  Any time I find a color challenge that involves chocolate chip, I'm there!  And did you notice that I managed to sneak in a panel of some long-ago retired designer paper?  That chocolate chip "sanded" panel is from the Spring Flowers paper pack from a LONG time ago!  This particular distressed paper has always been a favorite of mine.  I think I've only used it once before, because I start to cry every time I cut it up!  (Just kidding).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
