Challenging challenge!

Happy Sunday and a very Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there! Today's Stamp With Us challenge is a recipe one and boy did I struggle with this one..

-4 x patterned papers
-2 x cardstock
-no other embellishments

....ouch! I really didn't like my first attempt so binned it (perfectionist, moi?!!) and am only marginally slightly happier with this one - it isn't really me, too many papers and not enough (ANY!) embellishments..tough challenge!

Stamps - Petal Pizazz/Baroque Motifs
Ink - Pumpkin Pie/Bashful Blue
Paper - Washington Apple DSP
Card - Pumpkin Pie/Bashful Blue
Other - 1 inch circle punch/1/4 inch circle punch

Got to dash, thanks for visiting!

This is lovely Kate, I find the solid stamps tricky to stamp well and this is beautifully done. I love the way you have made ribbons from the DSP.

Watch out for me tomorrow, passing your neck of the woods x

Great card Kate - it was tough this one wasn't it!

Glad you had a second attempt as I love this one :-) Thanks for sharing

Oooh Kate that's a toughie challenge! You cracked it though - it doesn't look too busy. Bet your hand kept reachin' for those buttons and ribbons though LOL!
Thanks SO much for making my birthday extra special with your pressie - loved it!
Super big hugs,

HI Kate,

ick that was a tough challenge, I reckon you did a pretty good job though. The vertical stripes at the bottom are perfect to balance out the rest of the DSP's.


Sara said...

It is a tough challenge but you've done a beautiful job here, so bright and fresh. My guess is that the one you threw away would have been gorgeous too - I think you're way too much of a perfectionist, lol. Sara xx
