My First 411 Challenge


Okay, I'm excited. This is the first time I've done the 411 challenge over at Stamping 411 Check it out, they have some interesting stuff going on over there. Great directions for projects with detailed measurements too. And I am so happy with how this card turned out. Pictures never do any sort of craft justice but that's what we have here to share. There are a lot of firsts for me in this card.I had never used Robin Hood Red before and I just got this beautiful Ornate Blossom stamp so I wanted to put it to use. Wow, I just have to say WOW to both the stamp and the color. I will be using both a lot from now on. What a bold statement this flower makes.

Here are the supplies I used:
Stamps: Ornate Blossom, Thank you Kindly
Ink: Robin Hood Red
Paper: Robin Hood Red, Washington Apple dsp (retired)
Tools: Corner Rounder,  Eyelet Border Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pak, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder,
Accessories: Linen Thread, Bitty Buttons
I would love to hear from you. Do you like the card? Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.
