The Replacement

This is the card I ending up making for Sarah. As stated in a previous post I made a card initially for her but I just couldn't let it go so I made a new one. A friend of hers graduated with her Masters and the University's colors are navy and orange.

I used the Hero Arts envelope stamp, inked it with faded jean distress ink and then sprayed it with perfect pearls for that blingy shine. I stamped it on a piece of navy paper and mounted that on an orange Hero Arts card. The orange paper is from Cosmo Crickets salt air mini deck and the sentiment is from Close to my Heart. Again I colored the ribbon to match.

The card is simple yet it's really nice and I found the perfect place to enter it :D

I discovered this challenge in my surfing. A clean and simple challenge.. my favorite type.

Actually I had start a spreadsheet to keep track of all the challenges I've found. If I'm making cards I may as well try to win free stuff at the same time. How else am I going to support this habit? er ah I mean hobby.
