The Pink Elephant Challenge #9

My friend June suggested I try this blog challenge out. It is The Pink Elephant Challenge #9: Recipe Challenge---Use stamps, embossing and punches. I just remembered it this morning. So, ran downstairs to my craft studio (a bit of a stretch to call it that but I like the sound of it :)
and made up this card in about 15 minutes.
Recipe: Deja View Blue Raspberry Paisley dp
brown, light blue and white cs/white card
Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo distress inks
SU! Cute and Curly stamp set and coordinating punch
Sizzix Paislies texture plate for embossing w/CB
Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch
brown ribbon/blue brads
I embossed the white panel with the Paislies texture plate---then ran the Weathered Wood distress ink pad over it followed by the Vintage Photo distress ink; double matted this panel.
Cut a panel of the Deja View dp and double matted it. Overlapped these two panels on a white card that I had inked the edges of. Punched border along a white strip of cs with MS Eyelet border punch and then inked with Vintage Photo distress ink pad---used parts of this strip thruout the card. Stamped SU! sentiment w/vintage photo ink and punched out and double matted. Added foam tape to this element for dimension. Added ribbon and brads for detail.

Your distressing looks fabulous on the punched borders - can't believe you did it in 15 minutes - wow amazing .

Glad your friend told you about us at the Pink Elephant and I hope you'll join us again this week.

Fabulous! The "no thinking/ just create" cards are sometimes the was the case for you and this card! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! This might be my fave Deanna card so far :) (Yeah, I know I will have a lot more Deanna faves in the future!)
