Sudsol Challenges

Wow, it must have been a month since I have participated in one of Sudsol's challenges. The design was for a square card...which I don't usually make. So this was good for me. I kept the card small-4"x4"- and limited the layers. The images and verse are all from the Season of Simple Grace set. The "texture" on the kiwi kiss card base is made with the sanded background (ink-kiwi kiss). The designer paper is from Holiday Treasures - one of my favorites. Now, my challenge is to create other things - decorations, favors, cards, etc-with this set and with the designer paper. And, I need to do this quickly in time for my upcoming open house. I have already been working on the other important samples for this event...truffles and new kinds of chocolates! As a matter of fact, I just finished one of those new creations...it's good, but I just don't know what to name it yet.
What...you want to know what it is! You'll just have to check back in a few days. Perhaps I'll take some pictures.

Wow, I really like this! How long did this take you? About how much did you pay for the supplies/materials? It is a beautiful card!

Thanks. The card took less than 15 min. to make. The real red, very vanilla and piece of designer paper were all scraps from another project. So there was very little cost there. The stamp set is $25.95 and has 2 more images (wise men and shepherds) and 1 more sentiment. It's a great set.
