First Foray into Stampin' Up


I went to my first Stampin' Up workshop/evening last night. Stampin' Up's not nearly as big in the UK as it is in the US, I've seen the catalogues and like the names they give colours:), but never been to a sales evening before. I was lucky enough to win some of their DPs and a set of stamps on a challenge blog, but that's been the full extent of it so far. I made this card as a Make & Take, the demonstrator was very good, and of course I ordered some things LOL!

All DP, stamps, brads are Stampin' Up, the card is a nice Z-shape that is an easel on its side, the little scalloped circle to the right it stuck down with foam tape and holds the fold in place pefectly.
I'm entering the cards for Charisma Cards' Monochrome Challenge, hoping I'll get away with a tiny bit of green text and the 2 leaves:). I'm also entering it into Paper Sundae's "No People" challenge.
