Sneak Peek!

Today's SCS Technique Challenge 222 was to make a Hinged Card. I used this tutorial to make my card.
Click on the card for a larger view.
My images are from one of the new June 1st releases by Our Daily Bread designs called Ask, Seek, Knock. I am so excited about this set because the door reminds me so much of many doors I saw on my trip to Ireland last year (we left one year ago today!). Take a look at this picture:

This door is part of a beautiful castle
near Sligo that has been a girls' school.

Here is a view of the inside of my card (click the picture to see it close-up):

The designer paper I used is Brandywine and Sugardrop by Memory Box - both available at ODBD, as is the EK Success Punch I used for my border. Be sure to watch for my peeks coming from the Bread Basket this week! See the sidebar for all the ODBD Design Team (Bread Basket) blogs!

Stamps: Ask, Seek, Knock by ODBD
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Memory Box DP: Brandywine and Sugardrop
Ink: Pallete Noir Black, various
Accessories: brads, key charm, organdy ribbon, Nestabilities, paper pierce, EK Success Scallop Diamond Border punch

  8. Hi Judy! Love this card! Beautiful coloring and terrific layout!

    Sorry that it's been ages since I've visited -- my sister from Georgia was here for several weeks, then my son came home from college. That brought a week or more of laundering, sorting, storing, cleaning out, etc.

    Hope you are well and hope to visit again a lot sooner!
