A Day Late for the Featured Stamper's Challenge

Well, I decided to play at SCS yesterday and participate in the Featured Stamper challenge. Renee, aka prchvs, was the chosen one and her gallery is just wonderful. I had my card finished yesterday, but there was this thing on t.v., it was called the Super Bowl, ever heard of it? Yeah, pretty exciting stuff, so I just didn't get to uploading my card. I decided to case this card of Renee's. The things I changed are:

1. different sentiment

2. used summer sun instead of so saffron

3. snaps instead of brads

4. ribbon instead of linen thread

5. different dp

Everything else is pretty much the same. I just fell in love with her card when I saw it. Pick a Petal is one of my fave SU sets!

Here is my card recipe:

Stamps: SU Pick a Petal, $1 Studio G clear stamps

Paper: summer sun, old olive, purely pomegranate, whisper white, prove craft dp

Ink: purely pomegranate, close to cocoa, old olive, marigold morning

Accessories: organdy ribbon, snaps, paper piercer

Even though I didn't have time to upload or blog yesterday, I did manage to finish up a scarf that I started a couple of days ago. I got the pattern from Joanns, one of those free ones from Patons. It's called the CURLY Q scarf and it's crocheted. I used 2 skeins of Red Heart 'Pink Camo' instead of the suggested Patons SWS yarn. This really was a fun and easy project to make. I am not sure if I will give this one away, or if I will just keep it for myself... Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stoppin' by and I hope to see you again soon! TTFN

I absolutely love your petal card. Great colors and I love the Happy Birthday stamp, especially the font of it. Might have to dig up one for myself. TFS

Thank you for visiting my blog. Now I know why your face looks so familiar--I complimented you on that cool Monday SCS challenge card down a few posts. You did a truly awesome job. I like this card you CASE'd too.

This is such a cute card--I really like that flower. And I love your scarf! I recently learned how to knit those fun-yarn scarves. But I like this design much better--very cute! :)
