Confessions of a Challenge-aholic!

OOHHH... I just love 'em! I did this card using
There She Goes rubber stamps for a challenge
over at my friend Jessica's blog... also called There She Goes. It was to make a card and pretty up the inside to match the pretty outside... so here is my take on this fun challenge. I used the Branching Out set and after I stamped the image of the tree... I stamped the image of the envelope "branches." Next, I stamped the envelopes onto different colored paper and cut all of them out... Then I adhered them to the tree. I added the clouds and the ground, matted the tree and adhered it to the front. The I added the word and the envelope... and now for the inside...
I did more clouds and the ground... added the darling kitty from the Spooky Silhouettes set and
added the envelope swirl... and finally the rest of the sentiment. I usually make very VERY ornate cards with tons of sparkle and dots and ribbon and anything else I can glue on them... so this card was so "clean" and simple for me... and know what? I LOVE IT! And I love these stamps... they stamp so clean and crisp and the image comes out great the first time! HOW AWESOME IS THAT??? So check out Jessica's blog and webstore... she has some really nice and different stamp sets... have a great day... and send someone some love!!!
