This weeks challenge over at http://global-design-project is a sketch challenge and I’m sorry that I can’t add the sketch but I’m on my phone posting this note because for some reason we still don’t have internet connection on our computer and I have no idea how to get the sketch! This card was inspired by the sketch and the colors were inspired by a wreath of flowers from a memorial service that I attended this weekend. The embossing folder for the front panel is “Softly Falling” and “Pretty Print” behind the cut-out circle. The flowers and leaves are cut from the Botanical Builders Dies and the sentiments (front and inside) are from Rose Wonder stamp set. Have a beautiful week, Dawn.

Good Morning! This is a variation of a Brandi Cox card. I wasn’t feeling inspired by the starfish in the Picture Perfect stamp set, so I went looking for cards using it. For the beach I used the “You’ve Got This” stamp set. The starfish is stamped with So Saffron for the first stamp and Baked Brown Sugar for the second layer. The water is a torn strip of Lost Lagoon and the base is Pool Party stamped with Lost Lagoon. The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.
Have a happy weekend,

I’m still playing around with the new Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies…and the new Big Shot Die Brush…it works like a charm on the roses! This bookmark begins with a 2″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The rose is made with Rose Red Cardstock and is glued on to the new Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (DSP). Happy Week-end! Dawn

Four months ago, the Global Design Project began with a bang. I continue to be so taken with that particular weekly challenge because it attempts to bring together stampers from the whole world and to me, that is quite a peace initiative. So far, I haven’t missed one of the 17 challenges in 18 weeks…it’s so much fun – full of inspiration! The very first challenge was the first week that our friend John started a new round of cancer treatments and I asked the Global Stamping Community for prayers. The response was so heartwarming and John soldiered on…until yesterday when he crossed over to glory. Rest in peace, John.
I made this sympathy card after making a similar card for this week’s Global Design Project. The birthday card was on my last post when I submitted a Belly Band Project for the challenge, but the website wouldn’t allow me to post two entries from one blog post. Hope you have time to hop on over to http://www.global-design-project.com and play with this weeks color challenge!
