Stampin'B & Technique Challenges

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?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Lois, those are great. I especially love the colors on the first one, but the scissors on #2 are such a nice addition!
Hugs, Pat
