The Love of Learning

Serendipity Challenge Time! This week, it's making a card with either reading or writing as the theme. I chose one of my favorite Serendipity Stamps stamp set called simply "Books". I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Papertrey Ink kraft card stock. I added some Core'dinations card stock, Tim Holtz tissue tape and ribbon and then added the books image that had been colored with Distress Inks, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I finished the card by rounding the corners with my We R Memorykeepers corner chomper. Love that thing!

Run on over to visit the rest of the design teams' creations, including our guest designer Jenny Gropp.

I'm off for a few days of R and R..... See you soon!

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Core'dinations
Stamps: Serendipity Stamps
Patterned Paper: None

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Inks

Fabulous card. Love the rich feel and this has. The colorful books against the Kraft card stock really work well together.
