Simply Stampin' Challenge Week 1

Today is the launch of the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog - a weekly challenge blog for everyone who loves Stampin' Up! products!!!

The challenges are going to rotate around a sketch, a colour combo and a theme. This week's challenge is based on this sketch.

The first thing that popped in to my head when I saw the circle was to use the sweet treat cups. I decided upon making a baby card using the baby rattle from the Something Sweet stamp set. I filled the sweet treat cup with various co-ordinating beads from my crafting stash. It is a lovely tactile card!!   Infact a few days ago I showed someone a photo of the card that was on my camera and what a daftie I was as I shook the camera to get the beads to move about! I tell you this, I think I had been playing with the card too much!! LOL

Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Pink Pirouette (from the Subtles Paper Stack)
Ink: Bravo Burgundy
Stamps: Something Sweet
Punches: Scallop Edge Border
Ribbon: Blushing Bride 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon
Embellishments: Dazzling Diamonds, Sweet Treat Cups

 I hope that you join us in taking part in this week's challenge and if you haven't come to my blog from the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog then I encourage you to go back and see what the rest of the design team have been creating. There is also this fantastic PRIZE up for grabs too!!!
