June Challenge

Sue (you know who you are!!!) gave her stamping group a challenge for this month. It was to take this little 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" black notebook and decorate it! This is what I came up with. I opted to use the On Board chipboard name place piece. I took the eggplant marker and colored around the edges of the chipboard after I glued the decorative paper in place. I attached a couple of white brads to the nameplate.
I used the "Little Lamb" font by Stampin' Up! on my computer for the words. The larger circles are also chipboard from the same package. The buttons are actually yellow buttons heated up carefully with the embossing gun and dipped in white embossing powder a couple of times. The little black dots are from the holes of the name plate. Remember, I throw nothing away! I took the needle tool and picked it up on the backside. I heated it up and dipped it in black embossing powder a couple of times.

The paper is from the new 6 x 6 pack and behind it I used Elegant Eggplant. I also used eggplant grosgrain ribbon along with white organza ribbon and wove it around each coil.

This was a bit out of my element. I'm not use to working with chipboard.
