Blessed Sunday

Yeah!!  I made it to the final round of the Clean and Simple Fall Design team search.  The field is now narrowed down to 10 and only 3 will be chosen for the actual team.   There will also be Guest Designers announced.  Even if I don't make the team (again...I've been the bridesmaid a couple of times now) it's been great fun and challenges the brain.

The challenge for the third round is "Couples".  We are to use 2 of something.   You know me, I can't just leave well enough alone so I used several "couples".   My apologies in advance, it's been cloudy and rainy today so my photo lighting is terrible.

I decided to make a gift card holder instead of a card.   Here's are my "couples".....

a couple of folds to make it into the gift card
a couple of scores along the punched border
a couple of oval Nestibilitiies shapes
a couple of ribbons
a couple of designer papers
a couple of rounded corners

I can't take credit for the border because the punch is a "couple" of rows of scallops!  I did cut off the two end scallops though...does that count?  ;-)

I also won two of their adorable digital stamps.  I asked the "girls" if this means I'm now a "Twisted Sister"! 

And if all that isn't enough, I won 4 delightful digis and a watermark and signature from Sentimental Sundays blog and Raindrop Echo Designs!!
I must have been very good last week! 
Thanks for stopping by...if anyone wants the dimensions on the gift card, just let me know. 
Don't forget the Paper Cubed Challenge...there's a $15 gift certificate prize this month!

Pin It!
