This week's challenge at Our Creative Corner is to make a thank you card using blues and creams for color, some metal, and some vellum.  I combined it with the SSSC98 Design Challenge (for the layout) and here is what I created.  Some of my stamping friends think I'm strange for liking interesting bug stamps and paper - too BAD!  I think this Judikins bee is GREAT and it fit in with the new SU! Botanical Gazette DSP. The wings are vellum stamped with navy ink and clear embossed. Size is 5 x 4.75.
  • Stamps:  JUDIKINS 2340 H Big Bee, SU! sentiment : Fundamental Phrases
  • Ink: SU! Craft:  Night of Navy & Not Quite Navy
  • Paper: SU! : Botanical Gazette DSP, Not Quite Navy, Naturals Ivory, vellum cardstock
  • Other: yellow gemstones, SU! Word Window punch, vintage brads, CM circle cutters, Fiskars scalloped scisssors, clear EP, heat gun

Very creative way to use the vellum for the challenge and that SU paper is just perfect. I like your bee too - very artsy. Terrific job on the challenge and we are very excited that you have applied for the DT. We're happy you could join in our challenge fun this week too.
