Thanks to my friend Amanda, I found a great new challenge blog called Use it Tuesday. Their first challenge is to make something with an image you have not previously used for a project. I had just received this Aloha stamp set from Gina K. Designs in the mail today (my prize for winning last week’s color spotlight challenge on StampTV), so that’s what I used on my challenge entry.

I kept the card very clean and simple, because the sketch is Fall-to Layout 128 from the clean & simple stamping blog. The only embellishments on the card are knotted hemp twine and jute ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow! This is stunning! I don’t think it could be more perfect! The twine goes with that tropical theme…and I love the reflection. Thanks for warming me up in snowy Alaska!

    Thanks for playing with Use It Tuesday! We hope you join us again!
