A Challenge + An Experiment = Success!!!

I am so pleased with this card. I love participating in challenges, but always struggle to make my card ‘fit’. This weeks Runway Challenge is rainbows. I dug through my stamps, got an idea for this scroll image and it actually worked! What’s more, it turned out exactly they way I imagined it in my head! Woohoo!! That rarely happens! lol All stamps are by Verve. The flourish stamp is from the Birthday Blessings set, the sentiment is from Wordy Birds. I used the Classy Label Die to showcase the sentiment. You may be able to see the Diamond Stickles I added to the leaves at the end of each flourish… at least the sun was shining when I took the picture!

I might make another of these cards with a slightly different sentiment, but I still *love* the end result of this card! What’s more…. hubby does too!! Since he is the one who made a special request for a pile (yes! A PILE!) of thank you cards, that’s an added bonus! The picture just doesn’t do this justice… the weather is so cold outside that it would freeze my camera, so I had to do the best I could inside. Which is lacking. But you still get the idea. Anyone out there have any tips for photographing cards that are mostly white?
