First Card Challenge...

Today I created this card for Makeesha's latest colour challenge. I have been reading some fantastic blogs for a while now, and since receiving my Starter Kit and first Demonstrator order on Friday I can finally play along! The colours are SU! Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Whisper White and Basic Grey. I decided to set myself the extra challenge of making a more masculine card, but I don't have any typically masculine stamps, so I chose Pocket Silhouettes, stamped in VersaMark and white Craft ink and layered on Ruby Red & Baja Breeze cardstock, with Basic Grey as the base. The sentiment is from Trendy Trees, and I repositioned the words to fit inside the hodgepodge square using my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I added ribbon, a silver brad and paper piercing to finish it off.
Hopefully the quality of my photos improves as I go along! Thanks Keesh for this interesting combo!

Hello! It feels odd to be writing this, as at the moment I am only talking to myself! Anyway, I have recently decided to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I'm really looking forward to it, especially the postie coming to visit me with my brand new Starter Kit and first order - hopefully in the next couple of days!! I'm brand new to blogging too... hopefully I can figure it all out as I'd like to update frequently with my creations.
