A Return to the Card Chain Challenge

Hi all - it's been ages but I found my way back to The Card Chain Challenge, originally started by Deborah Nolan (Society of Stampaholics) who I knew from the Hero Hostess group. She was joined by Gail (Crafty Nomad) and Jo (Just a Dotty Pudding). I met Jo through her Christmas Kickstart Challenge where Gail also plays - so two new friends, yay!

I used the color scheme which really appealed to me, plus the sketch.

Here's the card I sent to Joanne (Ambrosia & Iron) in the UK who received it on Feb. 18th, as I predicted, 10 days from my mail date - yay!

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio Glitter; Anchor Paper grey card
DCWV Ms Sparkle cards (used to cut blue mat, scalloped strip & pink flower)
Stamps - Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Background (with coordinating die)
Dies - Taylored Expressions Layer It - Rustic Floral
My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired)
Other - ultra thin foam tape, Michaels gems
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide

The grey linen card is from a package I got at Anchor Paper (a Twin Cities paper warehouse), cut to A2 size - all you have to do is score the sheets to use as a card. The darker grey is the outside and the inside is the pale grey - such fabulous card stock, first time I've used it! Used another piece of it to cut the leaves. The flower, blue mat and scalloped strip were cut from scraps of DCWV A2 cards. Sometimes the cards are bent or flawed so I cut them up for scraps - too pretty to waste.

I received THIS CARD from my friend Dawn (Dawn's World) in New Zealand - so pretty, just love it!! Thanks Dawn!! You can see the full reveal HERE.

Thanks for stopping and thanks to the Card Chain Challenge crew for hosting this fun activity! You can still sign up for the March chain until March 6, 2020.
