Stampin Up Elizabeth

Looking at challenges in blogland you can get lots of inspiration for projects.  This one is inspired by this week's Mojo Monday challenge and also by the lovely ladies at St Luke's Hospice Challenge.  The Hospice challenge this month is for cards following the idea of Love and Lace. 
The sale-a-bration designer series paper has a very vintage feel and so compliments the lace ribbon and beautiful Elizabeth stamp really well. Elizabeth is one of Stampin' Up! 's a la carte stamps which means it is a single stand alone stamp that can be purchased along with an ink pad and pack of mixed cardstock and that's how easy it is to start stamping.  You CAN  make your own cards and bring out your creativity!! It's in all of us just hidden a little bit deeper in some folk!!
Once you've found your creativity pop over to the St Luke's Hospice Charity Challenge, look at the cards for inspiration and maybe you can enter a simple card and win yourself a prize.  It doesn't have to be super fancy, it can be something simple.  I've also entered this into the Sweet Stampin Challenge where you have to choose a trio of accessories. I've used lace, brads and flowers.

More soon
Happy Stampin'
