Something Old, Something New.....

....that's the challenge today on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. This was a great challenge. I took my inspiration colors from an invitation we received in the mail a few weeks ago. I have had the idea to try "making my own cake," so to speak, for a while now. This was the perfect opportunity.

Here are a few specifics about this card. The card is made by layering 3 different strips of white cardstock. Mine measured from the bottom to top: 3 3/4" x 1 7/8", 3 1/8" X 1 7/8" and
2 1/2" X 1 7/8". I rounded the top corners of each layer and then stamped. I always do a "dry run" when placing my layers before adding adhesive. Those little flowers were created using directions HERE. This is such a cool way of using up scraps.

Hope you can join in on this great challenge. Check out the DT's great creations and join us for a BLOG HOP TOO! It's sure to be fun!

Basic Recipe:
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Fancy Flexible Phrases
Ink: Versamark, Versafine Black
Paper: Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Whisper White
Other: Birds and Swirl EF, Cuttlebug, Iridescent Ice EP, Embossing Buddy, Chipboard heart, white paint, Shimmerz, MS Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Pearls
