CCMC118- Anything But A Card

One More Challenge- Create with Connie and Mary CCMC118- Anything But A Card
(see http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com) If you have a chance, check out their site- the design team created some wonderful examples and all of the submissions are terrific as well! 

I created this note holder that utilizes an inexpensive 5x7 acrylic photo holders- it is so easy to make for gifts.

The background paper started out as Whisper White and using So Saffron , Almost Amethyst and Always Artichoke, the ink was lightly "brayered" on at random.  The mini background stamp from Flores Suaves was used with Elegant Eggplant and sponge daubers were used to ink up the Medallion image.  

Stamp Sets:  Lovely As A Tree, Medallion, Flores Suaves
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Almost Amethyst (retired), Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant      
Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press EF, Brayer, Sponge Daubers, ¼” Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)

I hope you enjoy this idea- God Bless!
