Tasty Template - DCM

I love the Self-Addressed kits and have been a subscriber for some time now. I was thrilled to see that this week's challenge on the daring cardmakers site had to do with using a specific card sketch and papers/cardstocks from a Self-Addressed kit, if possible--the Tasty Template challenge. I tend to hoard my SA papers, so this was a good reason to pull some of them out.


This card was made with papers from the May 2006 kit. I used a Stampendous stamp as the main image and embellished using a Sakura Glaze pen for faux stitching, Fiskars scallop scissors for decorative edging, and a butterfly punch. Everything else came from the kit.
