During the month of July, there are challenges posted by past and present dirty dozen girls on Splitcoaststampers. The challenges are open to members of the fan club only. Now, I have got to tell you that a SCS membership lasts for a year and costs the equivalent of 3-4 craft magazines. SCS Membership is a bargain, people! I've been a member for years, and it really is money well spent.
My family was on holidays for the month of July, and I didn't get to play the challenges when they were 'fresh'. I didn't want to torture myself, so I didn't even peek on the infrequent occasions that I had internet. Now I'm home, the laundry is caught up and I'm back in my studio. I'll respect the request of the higher ups and not tell you what the challenge is specifically - membership has its privileges! Instead, I'll just tell you about my card ;)
I used papers from My Mind's Eye Life Stories Collection 1 (Kate has it on SALE!). I love the way paper packs make it so easy to mix and match patterns!!! I spritzed the mulberry flower with shimmer - Love this stuff!!!
I really like the taupe pearl flourish as a base focal point for the little floral cluster which frames this lovely, gentle sentiment from Irish Blessing by Waltzingmouse Stamps.
