Bloggers Challenge #98 - Dragged Madras


Hello! I am so excited...I am designing another stamp set for a summer release and I am loving how it is turning out! I am going to try to focus, but Dora the Explorer is blaring next to me, so I am having a hard time focusing. :)
Anyways, todays Bloggers Challenge is to create a Mother's Day card. I decided to use the Dragged Madras technique from Technique Junkies. I love this technique, it is FUN and EASY! Since I used (mostly) all of Stampin' Up! this also qualifies for an ALL ABOUT JOY card too. All about Joy cards are my feature on my blog when I use mainly Stampin' Up! product.
Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Inspired by Nature, All Holidays
Cardstock: Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, So Saffron
Accessories: Oval Cutter by Creative Memories, Rounded Tab Punch, Dew Drops, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, Mini Glue Dots, Glitter Pen, Prismacolored Pencils
Well, Dora is winning out over my thought process...all I can think about is baskets and bananas and yum, yum, yum, yum - whew that was close! LOL So for now, I am going to go, you have a FABULOUS day! Check out the other Blogger Challenge participants on the left hand side of the screen. They always inspire me to do something different and amaze me with their talents!
Have a great day!
