Shrink to Fit

While doing some blog hopping over the weekend, I saw a really cute card on my friend Jo's blog. It was a card she made for the challenge on Daring Cardmakers called "Shrink to Fit."

This challenge was posted on Friday and of course I only just got the chance to take part today. There's already a new challenge posted. But last week's challenge states...

"So this week I'd like you to think small - not small cards, but small spaces of embellishment on regular sized cards."

I don't typically make cards with this style, so this was a perfect challenge for me to try. I chose to use Sahara Sand as the card base. I then layered a 5cm X 6cm piece of Mellow Moss under a 4.5cm X 5.5cm of Very Vanilla. My images are from the Stampin' Up! set Baroque Motifs. I stamped the vine image in Mellow Moss and the flowers in Soft Sky. I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand. The two layers are adhered to the Sahara piece with foam tape. Thanks for looking. Happy Stamping!! :)
