A Challenge? Or Is It?

As I was searching through some of my favorite stamping blogs (I try to do this about once a week) I found a very cool challenge that I just knew I wanted to participate in. I haven't submitted anything to a challenge in quite a while and even though this time of year is hectic for me, I wanted to do it for me. So here was the challenge...use Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant, and Kraft cardstock. Here's the kicker...I also needed to incorporate stripes into my card.



I thought these were interesting colors to put together. Dark and rich, but the part I felt would really be a challenge was the stripes. Yikes! Well here was my first card. Cute?



I also added a puffy flower which I found on Dawn McVey's blog. She is brillant and has amazing cards. I think the flower adds something special, don't you?
