Simply Sassy Design Studio Challenge

What fun ... today is the first Challenge for the New Simply Sassy Design Studio Challenge Site. And what a fun challenge it is!! Here is what's required:


2 Buttons
2 Ribbons
2 Designer Papers
2 Layers


There is no stamping on this creation with the exception of the inside but I'm very happy with it's outcome!! It was also a little difficult to photograph due to the gold metallic used for the matting behind the image. I have yet to figure out the best way to photograph my cards that use shiny papers !!



The papers used for this creation are SU Very Vanilla, Gold Metallic, Karen Foster designs, and BoBunny designer paper. Ribbons are SU Chocolate Chip satin and Offray gold satin. The two heart buttons come from Bucket O'Buttons and dimensional were used to pop up the main image.
And BTW ... the main image is actually a portion of the designer paper that I cut out then ran it through the Cuttlebug with my oval Nesties.



I have had requests lately to see the inside of my cards (when I finish them that is, LOL) so today I finished this card as an Anniversary card for friends of ours. Both images are by Paper Inspirations.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have found inspiration in my work! Be sure to jump over and check out this new challenge blog ... sure looks like great fun to me!! Happy Weekend All!!

  15. What a lovely card. I'm amazed that you didn't use any stamping (traditional or digital). Great idea using a picture from the designer paper. Thanks for joining us at SSDT challenge blog this week and I look forward to seeing more.
