I stumbled across a scrapbooking challenge here, and it was definitely what I needed for some inspiration. Here's my take, though I must say I took some creative liberty with mine.

In the challenge, I was to use the following:

1. the colors green and teal --I loved using this color combo.

2. embossed paper --My dark green background cardstock is embossed with a vine pattern.

3. paint - I used a teal paint around the edges of my cardstock, and little dots of glitter paint on my punched photo corners.

4. string --Here I used binding tape (I think that's what it's called) instead of string.

Lots of fun. I loved using what I had as well. If you take the challenge...let me see! (Oh, and by the way...these photos of me were taken in 1988! Um Hum...go ahead and say it...they're old!)

I enjoyed this so much, I decided to do a card using the same criteria. :)

The embossing at the bottom (though not perfect) was done with my Crop-a-dile! :)


  1. i love seeing your take on our challenge! the vine embossing on the cardstock is so subtle and pretty. and love the photo corners. so glad you were inspired to play along ... and thanks for sharing with me!

  2. Love the subtle distressed look and the splash of color you got by using the teal paint on the edge of that green cardstock! Thanks for playing seeing your ideas with the challenge!!

  3. Wow, those pictures are perfect for this challenge! I love your take on all of the elements - and I really love that you made a card to go along with the challenge too! Thanks for playing along! :o)
