Paper Crafting Challenge #9: One Embellishment

Good morning! I am a bit late with this, but with the chaos of spring sports season (baseball, softball, and lacrosse)/end of school, it's easy to see how that can happen! I am hoping to schedule the next few weeks' worth of blog posts so as to avoid this in the future.

Today, I am excited to share the latest Paper Crafting Challenges challenge, sponsored by the wonderful Studio Calico. They have offered up a great prize for the winner, and have even given our blog followers a special promo code! If you've ever wanted to subscribe, now is the chance! Head over to our blog post to check it out.

We want to see your creations using just ONE EMBELLISHMENT this time around, and here's what I whipped up:

 I love the look of an inked up embossed background, so I ran the cardstock through my Big Shot with my Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folder and rubbed Rose Bud Memento Dew Drop ink all over. The edges are inked in Espresso Truffle Memento ink. The Bo Bunny stamp (adorable, right?!) was colored in with my Spectrum Noir pens (EB3, TN2, PP6, PP5, PP4) and mounted with foam squares, and a Crafter's Companion sentiment from their Sentimentals EZ Mount Stamp Set collection was the perfect finishing touch. My one embellishment: this gorgeous Maya Road rosette ribbon!

Head on over and show us your project using just one embellishment. There are only two days left...which means I need to head over and schedule the post for my next project ;) Can't wait until this chaotic month is over and life can carry on as usual!

Khristen, hun, this is so cute! The little owl is just adorable - and your colours are lovely! The ribbon is absolutely fab!

I hope your life gets calmer soon - our kids are wonderful, but sometimes they can be very high-maintenance lol!

love Mags B x
