February's Challenge entry

I realised yesterday that we were already a week into February and I was going to renege on my New Year's resolution unless I was careful.

There are so many challenge blogs, but as you know from my post in January I have a few favourites. Luckily there were two that took my eye and I have to admit that I am cutting it fine to get this project onto one of them.

The first one is The Freshly Made Sketches #72 -  A Sketch by Candy

I have a few yummy things from the new Spring/Summer catalogue that I thought would be fun to play with for this sketch and then I spotted another challenge that also took my fancy.

So I decided to combine the above with the Less is More Challenge - Kraft & Creme

In Stampin' Up! terms this means Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. This is such a classic and classy combination - good for any number of occasions.

The Stampin' Up! products used are

Stamp set : Itty Bitty Banners
Card stock : Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla
Paper : Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack*
Accessories :  Designer Builder Brads*, Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon*, Bitty Banners framelit dies, Delicate Doilies Sizzlits, Dimensionals

* from Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue

I hope you like my attempt at these two challenges and please feel free to leave a comment.
