OTWC #48

For this week's Off The Wall Craftiness challenge, we have an awesome sponsor:  Donna Downy stamps by Unity.  These are deeply etched red rubber stamps that stamp so beautifully!  The DT was sent a stamp set to design with and mine was called Little Whispers.  However, first I need to show you the inspiration photo for this week.


My card: 



For this, I did a bit of sponging around my rectangle Nestie and some Copic coloring to make this
easy peasy!  My patterned paper is from the Stella and Rose Hattie papers.  LOVE THESE!!!  One of my good friends, Jen, turned me onto these papers and I couldn't stop at just getting one collection (I mean really how do you choose from these 4 collections?  If you haven't seen them, DO and then tell me it's easy to choose!).  :)


Just a little housekeeping business......this is the last weekly OTWC challenge.  They will now be every 2 weeks starting with today's challenge.  Another thing, use those Wilson Designs stamps for your projects to get an extra chance at a sweet prize up for grabs!

This is just gorgeous! Love that beautiful ribbon and bow! Now on to my request, you must STOP enabling me!! :-) You are tempting me with more beautiful things and it's a good thing I am moving and won't be purchasing these things for awhile! :-)

This is such a sweet card, Amy! Love the dotty ribbon and the subtle sponging. I agree with you about the Stella and Rose paper, which is why I haven't bought any of them yet! I can't decide which one(s) to get and I can't afford them all! LOL!

You used that color palette so beautifully here, Amy. The blue paper you used is really pretty. I like that a bunch. ANd your soft blue sponging goes so well with it, too.
