copy cat

Normally I like to show you cards I designed myself, but all I had time for today was to stamp this card, which is a complete copy of a card featured in our monthly demonstrator magazine -- Stampin' Success. Now, granted, Stampin' Up! actually wants us to use these ideas in our business (hence the little "demo it" seal they put on certain projects) and the card is cool in the way it shows off our fun brocade backgrounds designer paper, our hodgepodge hardware and our cool taffeta ribbon, but I still feel like it's cheating somehow. So I haven't decided yet if i will use this for the Double Your Pleasure card techniques class or if I will come up with two new projects. I guess we'll find out tomorrow. Only two days to go before my trip and I still haven't started packing, so this may have to do.

Stamps: baroque motifs

Ink: chocolate Chip

Paper: old olive, brocade backgrounds double sided designer series paper

Accessories: chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, antique copper hodge podge hardware.

Diane - it's a great card that shows off: designer paper, my favorite stamp set, and the taffeta ribbon! (and I copied it too!) :>)

It's not "cheating", it's "using the business resources available to you!"
