I'm back :)

Good Evening! I took a short little break after all those posts during the "Week of Peeks". That was a great week and I want to thank everyone who participated! All the stamps are available now on 2RedBananas.com. We also have some cool new ribbons like one of the ones used on this card!

This cards I made for one of the challenges on SplitCoastStampers, the challenge was to make a card with a recessed window, very fun to do. You can find this challenge here. I know I've told you this before, but I just love challenges, they make me do some things, I wouldn't otherwise do, like make this recessed window card, but it was so cool to make. I got to use my faux suede leaves ribbon too and I can tell you they are very cool, so soft and great texture! I also used just the tail of the January stamp from the January Journaling Spots too. I stamped it with Versamark for the background inside the window.

In this picture you can see the recession better. I used pop-dots for my flowers and leaves so they would stand up a little bit.

I also used dp from Imaginisce, Loves Me line - Weak in the Knees and a cuttlebug corner die, May Arts green striped ribbon, the nesties die for my sentiment rectangle, a Studio G sentiment and gems. No dew drops and no shimmerz, can you believe it!!!

2RedBananas will be sponsoring the House Mouse Challenge the week of February 16th. I will remind you again so you can participate and be entered to win a new stamp :)
