JAN08VSNQ ~ Packing the Purse


I wanted to participate in VSN this go around. Fridays are hard because I drop off my oldest so he can see his dad. Traffic is horrible and by the time I get home, I just want to chill. We had a birthday party today and that took up most of the day. I did manage to get a challenge done and here ya go!

The challenge is Packing the Purse and I have to do all of this and nothing more:



Stamps:
1 flower or other botanical
1 sentiment stamp
1 background stamp

Ink:
any

Paper:
3 different colors of cardstock (neutrals count as a color!)
2 different patterned papers

Tools: (use at least one)
cuttlebug
paper piercer
punches
sponge
distresser

Embellishments: (pick at least 3 different kinds of embellies for your card)

thread
ribbon
eyelets
brads
spiral clips
bling


Here's what I did:

Stamps:
Pollen Dust by Fancy Pants Designs for the flower/botanical
Warm Words for the Sentiment
Sanded for the Background

Ink:
Versamagic: Wheat, Malted Mauve, Perfect Plumeria, Hint of Pesto, Niagra Mist, Midnight Black
SU: Bravo Burgundy

Paper:
Basic Gray
Bravo Burgundy
Very Vanilla
2 different prints from Cosmo Cricket's Wonderland

Tools:
Cutter Tool
Cutterbee Piercing Bugs

Embellishments:
Kraft Taffeta Ribbon
Pewter Jumbo Eyelets
Stickles--Gunmetal and Burgundy
Liquid Pearls--Pewter


In hindsight, I would have traded River Rock for the Basic Gray and that was my original intent but I didn't do it and time was ticking away :-)


Thanks for visiting!
