Compose a card with Becky



Becky has a challenge on her blog this week using Enchanted Evening, White embossing powder, and Soft stone. I was totally out this week but I used my Girl Scout training from many years ago and improvised. I had to add a layer because all I had was clear embossing powder but I did have denim ..... I did not have Enchanted Evening paper so I used SU Not Quite Navy but I did have EE Twill ribbon ..... YIKES it was suppose to be satin. I did not have the Soft stone either so I used a nice stone color paper from not sure where but it has a bit of sheen..... it is very nice paper. So here is my challenge this week ....... the challenges are helping me diet too ~bonus~ and now all of NYC will have a card made by me :) Have a great day!!!

Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! I've thought about getting rid of my music but I like to turn it on while stamping! :)

Your card came out beautiful! I had to make do on my card too. I think I need to buy some soft stone.

So, so pretty! Love the use of Damask designs as a sort of chandelier like the inspiration photo! I made my card up for this challenge last night but I can't get a good photo of it.
