4U friend & some blog candy

My card for totday fulfills the challenge at No Time to Stamp, which was to use the word "friend".
It also fullfils the Tealy Good challenge at Cute Card Thursday which was to use a teal/red color combo. I will admit that these are colors that I would never have put together if it weren't for the challenge. Nor would I have searched for my Friendship word puzzle so I could have the word "friend" on this card.
And, since I was feeling a little "out of my box" with the colors, I searched for a sketch and found one on Truly Scrumptious. So, this card, in its entirety was challenge based. I'm so glad there are blogs to help us feed our mojo.
Here's my card:
Again, I know you can't tell - but the rectangular piece in the middle is attached with foam tape. The button and ribbon at the corner hide a stamping error - my laziness got the best of me and I tried to stamp with an incorrect size acrylic block ... um, let's just say after that I got up and got my blocks! Oh, and I put the paper in the Cuttlebug upside down, so my dots are "reverse embossed" ... uh, yeah. Only you paper crafters would know ... (or understand the error, perhaps?).

Supplies: Stamp set - CTMH Friendship word puzzle. Paper - really old DCWV and American Crafts. Embellishments - all unknown sources, from my stash. Tools - Cuttlebug dot folder, EKSuccess scallop circle punch.

  1. Too funny. I use the wrong size block ALL THE TIME and use my shirt to wipe the extra ink off the block before I stamp it... lol. And my case of blocks is right next to my feet, but I still don't grab them.

    I am guilty of using the 2.5 x 2.5 block for almost everything...
