The Challenge Guest Designer: There’s Always time for tea!


I was super thrilled to be the winner over at The Challenge last week!  Lesley asked me to be a guest designer for this week’s challenge!

Check out the gorgeous inspiration for The Challenge #64:

I was thoroughly inspired by the delish colors so I decided to make them the focal point of my card for today:

I’m finally inking up my Stampin’ Up A Nice Cuppa set.  I’ve had it for awhile but haven’t had a chance to play with it.  I stamped it with Fresh Ink Navy and quickly covered the image with clear embossing powder.  In real life, this card has a good amount of texture because of that.  Although the washi is Stampin’ Up too, it’s been discontinued…I used it because it reminds me of a wave pattern.  The pattened paper is Basic Grey Adrift (sniff, sniff…so sad that they are no longer in business).  The MFT Sour Apple cardstock is a fun POP of color, eh?

I can’t wait to see how The Challenge inspires YOU!

My card was also inspired by TGIF Challenges:
