One for JUGS And a New Challenge

I made this card for JUGS. I love the name of that blog Just Us Girls. What a great name but there are men who are hooked on the craft. One that is famous is Tim Holtz. The girls have some great things going on at their blog. The DT is made up of some very talented ladies.
This card was made using some of my favorite paper Cosemo Cricket paper called Mr. Campy Flannel. I love the colors. The edge or border on the left was cut from SU Very Vanilla with my Cricut and the Easter 2010 cartridge. Isn't that a cool border? I welded it together using my Gypsy so that it would fit the card. The ribbon is SU Riding Hood Red.the base card is dark brown. I used Nesties to cut the dark brown scallop circle. I paper piersed the the scallops to go with the stitching in the paper. Maybe I should use a white jell pen to make it show up. The tulip stamp is from the Angel Co. and was colored with Copic markers. I used SU Very Vanilla and another piece of DP for the inside.

I got one of those light boxes to take pictures in and I really don't think it is making much difference. The colors still are not showing up as nice as they really are. I still have a lot to learn.

There is a new blog challenge called Sir Stampalot Clallenge. Sir Stamplot is a monthly challenge and a new one will be announced on the first of every month. They are giving away Hero Arts goodie bags. To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is:

What a beautiful card! I was interested in your remarks about the light box for taking photos. I have been thinking about getting one of those too. I'm continuing to try different things to get better photos. Making a little bit of headway, but still not completely satisfied. Let me know if you find any tricks that work, and I'll do the same.
And thanks for the heads up about that new challenge! I always love Hero Arts stuff!!!

Really love the colors on this card, I haven't seen that paper in person but I think your colors came across just fine, so earthy feeling. Love your layout and mix of patterns.
