Your Next Stamp Challenge #22

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! Our hostess is none other than our fearless leader Karen, and she has challenged us to make a birthday card. Of course that makes sense since YNS is celebrating it's first birthday starting August 5th!! Here's my card:

I used the Lily stamp (which can also be found in the Garden Greetings set) and a sentiment from Elegant Greetings.

It's a little late, but I used a slightly modified FTL #100 (I flipped the sentiment to the other side). I stamped the Lily in white on kraft cardstock then colored with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. After I was done coloring, I restamped over the image with white to bring the lines back over the colored pencil, and I also stamped with glue and poured ultra fine glitter all over it (I glittered the sentiment as well).

I embossed just the bottom portion of the white card base and rounded both top corners. Finally I added some ribbon, a button and Timeless Twine.

This card is also for the following challenges: We hope you'll play along with us! One lucky participant will be drawn at random to win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks!! You don't have to use YNS images on your card, but if you do you'll get a double entry in the draw!

Also, the challenge hostess will choose her favorite card, and that winner will get the YNS Challenge "Top Pick" blinkie to proudly display on their blog PLUS $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks! You must use a YNS image to be eligible to be chosen for Top Pick.

Full details can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog. TFL!
