I am actually disappointed in myself because I issued the challenge over at Scrapjazz.com. It was to create a card using any OLD supply that you had. It could have been paper, stamps, stickers, etc. To say I am a bit of a "collector" is an understatement. I have a store in my room. So for me, this challenge was quite easy.
I modeled my card over an old Nichole Heady card that I saw on Pinterest. However, I had to make it my own. First, for my OLDEST supply, I used one of the first stamps I ever bought from Stampin Up! (Script-retired) with Kraft ink stamped onto vanilla card stock. I then cut the piece of stamped paper into a 2" by 4 1/4" strip and adhered it onto an Aqua Mist card base. I then cut a few scraps from my drawer into small strips, inked them and adhered them to the card.
Next I cut a 3" by 3" of Kraft card stock and stamped a Mehndi Medallion using Kraft ink. Next I layered images and a sentiment using Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy and Smokey Shadow ink. Using foam adhesive, I then adhered the square to the background card. My last step was to use Diamond Stickles o add a little more zing to the inside of the flowers.
This card is for a dear woman who lost her husband this week to leukemia. It was very unexpected and I have been heart sick over her loss all week. How I detest cancer and cannot believe with all our science we have not figured out a way to prevent it. I know that each case is unique but I can still wish!
Thank you for stopping by today. I will be posting another project momentarily to join in for Paper Trey Ink's seventh anniversary.
