Happy H{ippity}Hop - January 10, 2011

Last week Team {ippity} decided to host a HUGE CHALLENGE to kick off 2011.  Check it out here (last week's).  The first part was to create a project using the sketch below.  I used So this is Love stamp kit, scrap ribbon and paper (still trying not to cut a new sheet of paper).  I also used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch (new toy, so I'm using it a lot) the side scallop was made with decorative scissors.  
This card was made for my personal challenge "Magazine Monday."  I'm using a sketch from the January/February 2010 issue of Paper Crafts magazine (found on pg. 19).  The base is made from Kraft card stock.  The rest is pieced from scrap ribbon and paper.  The 3 little white dots are actually tiny shells, I tried to take a close up, but the camera would not cooperate.  The images are from Farm Fresh (used Haystack and Burnt Umber Palette Ink).  Thanks for looking!

Please check out the other wonderful creations from the Ladies of {ippity}, here.
