A Photo Challenge

The photo for the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is so adorable. It made me think of elementary school and one of my favorite teachers. I thought I had the best third grade teacher ever. Her name was Ms. Murray and she included some fun stuff in her class like plays and cool games with parachutes.

For my card I used Sahara Sand for the card base and then layered on a piece of Modern Medley paper. I ran it through my Big Shot and the Wildflower Meadow TIEF. I gave the embossed flowers a quick sand to show them off and then added my funky tag. The greeting comes from Yippee Skippee and the butterfly is punched from Birthday Basics DSP. I included a bit of Basic Black Chevron ribbon, Summer Starfruit Sticked ribbon, and Cherry Cobbler bakers twine. And then could not resist a few bits of bling!

Be sure to check out all the fun things the design team has created over at Hand Stamped Sentiments using the inspiration photo.


  1. I love the look of the sanded embossing. Too cool! I enjoyed reading about Ms. Murray. It amazes me what sticks in our minds after many years!

  2. CuteCuteCute!!! I love this card! What grabbed me was the simple little bit of bakers twine. Tell me, how did you get it to curl and stay curled?

  3. OMG! What can I say... I am speechless... this is AWESOME!!! I love all the elements and the hint of the embossed area... AWESOME!!!

  4. You have more talent in your little pinky than I have in both hands! What a gorgeous creation. I love the sanded flowers on the dark print, and the mixture of ribbons just keeps you looking and loving! Great job!
