Did You Miss Me??

As you might imagine, I was pretty wrapped up with finishing Christmas cards, shopping, wrapping mailing, etc!! So my blog has been sadly neglected.

But it is a new year!! And what better way than to start out with a challenge card? In fact, a TRIPLE challenge card!!

Today, the Featured Stamper challenge was posted, and it was a familiar gallery, because Marisa is a member of the Color Dare Design Team! I chose this card to CASE. I also combined it with this week's color challenge on splitcoaststampers (Night of Navy, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight) and this week's Ways to Use it challenge to use silver.

All of the items used are from Stampin' Up! I used Regals Designer Series Paper Stack and Greenhouse Gala DSP, along with very vanilla, old olive, and night of navy card stock. My silver brads were lined up with my mat pack and paper piercer. I crimped one layer, as in the FS card, and added a regal button. It really is just navy, but there is a bit of reflection, which, oddly enough, looks kinda cool! It is tough to see, but I threaded some retired silver cord through the button as well. The sentiment is from On Your Birthday.

It feels good to stamp with challenges again! Hope to do a LOT of that this year!!
