My upline offers a monthly "Creative Challenge" using certain products in the catalog. I signed up for this one because I knew I would love the Artisan Embellishment Kit. After I played with the kit and designed four cards, I really struggled with the decision as to which one I would enter (others will vote on the cards submitted) and finally decided on this card. It had my husband's vote. The other one that I almost entered was posted on Saturday.
I used the same technique on this card as on card I last posted but with Rose Red Classic Ink this time. The two cards are totally different, as you can see. Since I like the font and the size of the greeting from the hostess set, Bloom With Hope, you'll discover I use it often.
The die-cut card, lace and large metal button are from the Artisan Embellishment Kit.
