Saying Goodbye at Stamp Something

Today, we're saying Goodbye to the Stamp Something Challenge. That's right, Stamp Something is hosting it's final challenge as it's taking a creative hiatus! So make us happy and play along for your last chance to win a prize at Stamp Something! Our theme is Anything Goes or Something to Say Goodbye...of course! We have several sponsors offering up great prizes too...

I have had such a great time creating cards and projects at Stamp Something for the past year. I will certainly miss Denise and Erin and all the DT girls...but let's not be sad about it, let's celebrate the good times we have had! Here' what I made for the challenge...and I really do mean this...Always look on the bright side of life!

I used four...count 'em, four Verve sets to create this one! There's the stems with leaves from Petals & Stems, the largest flower is the Elegant Flower, the small and medium flowers are from the Because of You set, and the sentiment is from Fluttering By! And...let me tell you...that was no easy task to get a two line sentiment into one line without getting any ink where it shouldn't be! But, I always want something my way and I'll keep trying until I get it just right...btw, a piece of scotch tape over the parts you don't want worked best! It's cut out with the PTI banner die. I'm also a huge fan of fussy cutting these days too and those little flowers are tiny...especially the cut on the tip of the petals!

I just love these MME papers from the Lost and Found collection. I used six different patterned papers on this card...two for the background, one on the scalloped edge and each flower has it's own dp! I cut the circle from Spellbinders dies and the scalloped edge is a Fiskars punch. I added a pearl to each flower center, a sheer ribbon and bow topped with a watering can brad and a few pearls in the corner! I'm definitely going to use up my brads this way...it just might take 100 years!
