Say what? No patterned paper?

 This week's challenge over at Cupcake is to make a card using no patterned paper - a difficult task except that I had this fabulous stamp sitting on my scrap table just waiting to be inked! I think it lends itself quite well to a CAS style card.

I made two versions because I couldn't figure out which I liked better. What say you? Stitching or hand-bombed lines? Plain white card base, or mounted on a black base for more contrast?

Yikes am I ever tired! Tired enough to nap after work, yep you heard it! I think I might still be recovering from my super busy work trip last week and perhaps fighting off some germs as Doodlepants has some nice ones just now. Oh well, this too shall pass... (hopefully sooner than later!)

A shot of my Pasque flower taken about a week ago. This is a lovely early bloomer (with many flowers in the bunch) that is comfortable in our cooler climate here. This plant was transplanted from a friend's garden last summer and is doing well.  I think I need more of these for lots of pretty purple blooms to go with all my daffodils!

Stay tuned for the next challenge from DAT'S Designing Divas!

Take care,
Shanna :)


  1. My favorite of the two is the "hand-bombed" one. I love the design! Did you emboss the flower, or just stamp it? TFS

  2. They're both great...I like the hand done lines. Lee-Ann :)

  3. Fantastic cards, both of them! Thanks for joining us at Cupcake and good luck! Delphine xx


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
