Look into my eyes, you will see......

Sorry, couldn't resist. Gotta love Bryan Adams!

Happy Thursday, people! It's a good day. Project Runway started last night, Shear Genius was on, and I got to stamp! WAHOO!!!!!

Today is the kickoff of Verve's July Project Parade Challenge, which is to make an Artist Trading Card. I love making these little guys...so fun! If you need some help, here's a tutorial that Jen wrote on Splitcoast.

I was driving yesterday and for some odd reason was thinking about purple. Purple is usually one of those colors I just don't like to use when I am stamping. It used to be my favorite color, but I just can't bring myself to use it on my cards! I decided that I was going to challenge myself and use Eggplant on my project.

So I picked out Rose Red, Saffron, and Eggplant. I really like it!! I stamped and embossed the flowers with each color, cut them out, and popped them up on my ATC. Add a little ribbon, the sentiment, and we're done!

But no....I couldn't stop there! I decided to make a full card out of my ATC. It turned out clean and simple...quite fun!

Soooo...wanna know how to win $15 in Verve Bucks? Check out my post on the Verve Blog HERE for all the details! Hope you guys have a fabulous day!!
