Beloved Paper Challenge from Joanne

First of all, if you haven't checked out Joanne B's blog, ...just a little something..., I highly recommend that you go there and take a peak. She does phenomenal work! She has a challenge this week, to use at least one of five things from a list. I've used My Mind's Eye Beloved paper and pearls. I just bought the Beloved paper last weekend when I was in Salt Lake on business and managed to fit in a trip to a scrapbook store. Thanks to Joanne's challenge, I have cut into it rather than hoarding it! I don't have any of MFT's Pure Innocence stamps (although they're on my shopping list), so I used Paper Trey Ink's Everyday Button Bits. The punch border is a Martha Stewart one. This was a fun card to make! It was also the first time I played with the Button Bits and I'm itching to try some more of them out. A good way to use some of the thousands of buttons that I seem to have collected.

Anyway, here's my card. I really need to get another true color light. Sorry for the poor lighting on these! I had hoped to get them done earlier, but had to photograph them this evening.

Here's a close up to show some of the details.

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. It's a long one for me, so I'm hoping to get in more stamping a blogging tomorrow. Now I'm off to finish cleaning up my stamp room, which is what I was supposed to do today.



  1. Yeah for using otherwise hoarded materials because this is a BEAUTY!

  2. those pearls are totally adorable as is the card.
