Paper and Such Challenge - No Coloring

If you are here for the Ribbon Carousel challenge, scroll down or click HERE!

It's time for another Paper and Such challenge and this one was just that for me.....a big 'ol challenge!  No coloring.  That's right.  STEP AWAY from your copics, ladies.  Put down those colored pencils.  Just stamp and walk away.   This made me step WAY outside of my comfort zone.  Here's what I finally came up with in the end after much struggling.......

I decided to use the Clean and Simple Stamping Sketch #167 as my inspiration.  I started with a PTI white CS base.  I die cut a PTI black circle with a nesties and then stamped some text from the PTI Background Basics: Text Style stamp set in PTI fresh snow ink. I stamped the Paper and Such Poppies in Momento Tuexedo Black ink onto PTI white CS cut it out, and adgered it to the black circle panel.  The sentiment is also from the Paper and Such Poppies stamp set.    I added a couple of black rhinestones to embellish.

Now head on over to the Paper and Such blog and link up your creation for a chance to win a prize along with a cool bragging rights badge for your blog!  You can use ANY image you want.  It does not need to be an image sold in the Paper and Such store, but we sure love it when you do!   The only rule is that you can't enter more than twice.  That's it.  Just that one.  Be sure to check out some additional inspiration from my fellow DT members!
