I work for an association management company, which manages twelve not-for profit associations. One of our services is putting on their annual meetings, which obviously requires a meeting planner. One of the women in the office was just notified that she passed the test and received her Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) designation. I made a congratulations card for her, using the Bargello Design technique, this week's Technique Challenge on SCS. This card also qualifies for the Stampin'B challenge to use a flower on your card.
Following the direction Joan Ervin gave for the Bargello Design, I used papers from g*c*d studios' Melody Ross paper pad for the strips. I made the flower using several punches, then sponged around the edges and put together with a brad. The sentiment is part of an all-sentiment set from Mark's Finest Papers set called Flourishes and Frame.
This is another card I made using that same technique, using papers from DCWV's The Crafty Stack and images from Mark's Finest Papers' set called Sew What?
