New and All-time faves

Today's card was made for the monthly Dirty Dozen Alumni Challenge over on SCS. Here are the rules we were to follow:

Challenge Focus: Create a Mother's Day or Father's Day card or gift. (This could be for your Mom or Dad or a grandparent or aunt ot uncle or even just for a good friend you might want to acknowledge with a little favortism on one of these days.)

Required Element: Personal Favorites - incoporate your current FAVE (could be stamp set, technique, color combo or embellishment) and an all-time FAVE that you seem to always fall back on (stamp set or technique or color combo or embellishment) and tell us about them.

Restricted Element: No work involved. - meaning this should be for fun and not fullfill any DT requirements or promote any companies you might owe a little favor to or anything like that. YKWIM. Take some time to just stamp for joy!

My new favorite is the Octagon Nestabilities Shapes by Spellbinders. I gravitate to that shape more often. I also love the new fiskars border punches. LOVE punches!! My all-time fave, of course, is ink distressing. No surprise there. So I incorporated that technique also.

Now we were also to make sure that our card or project was not for any DT requirement. So, I used some new Stampin' UP! images and paper. So, here it DDA Favorite Project.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful week!
