Kimberly Van Diepen of Stampin' By The Sea has challenged her readers to make a card with with only what's on your desk. Easy for me, as most of the stuff I love most is on my desk :) So here I go! Come along with me. Here's my card...
And here's how I got there. I started by shifting around things that are just stacked. Sahara Sand woodgrain circles, a random stamp, a butterfly. I'd like to say that I don't usually wallow in this much stuff, but I'd be lying to you. If I'm lucky, I have a 2' x 1' area to work, and then I'm bumping piles! I have bowls, jars, baskets, and bins. Welcome to my world!
I decided that I like these together, and now I'll pick a background.
Ooh, this is springy! Good, I'm going with the green.
Adding a few details, I'm not sure if I'm don't embellishing, so I'm tacking it down and I'll work some more bits around. So far, I have a banner strip from Tea for Two and a tiny scrap of Naturals ribbon. I stamped a Mother's Day sentiment on them. Picked up a button from what's left of my Artisan Embellishment kit. Linen Thread, and we're almost done.
