A team challenge!

Hello everyone, hope your enjoying your weekend.

At the beginning of this week my lovely upline Bekka sent all of her team a mystery white envelope... inside had some card, ribbon lengths and a sheet of rub ons with a simple card inside to say details were in our newsletter!

I love surprises and she had the great idea to set us a challenge to use the stash in the envelope to create a card WITHOUT STAMPING!
I know, I was hyperventilating at the thought...

So I chose the Ruby Red card stock for my card base, then matted a piece of Chocolate Chip on top.

I applied the dotty border rub ons to the Chocolate Chip piece and tied some of the gorgeous Chocolate Chip satin ribbon around it.

Then I punched out a bunch of hearts using the Heart to Heart punch in Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Naturals Ivory card.

I popped some up with dimensionals and some stuck straight down with my tombow glue.

With the smaller Chocolate Chip hearts I felt they needed something else to make them stand out from the background so I used another border strip from the rub ons sheet.

This really kick started my mojo - esp. as I hadn't been expecting it.

I can't wait to see what the others come up with.

Thank you Bekka :)

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
