A Little Means a Lot

This weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is Clean and Simple!
This one is fairly simple, i suppose, as far as design goes, but it does take a little bit of fussing and here is why...
In order to get the decorative band across the middle, i cut a strip of Whisper White and had to use my Stampamajig to stamp the image so it would line up. Not too difficult, but still you have to be careful when you stamp. Luckily, i got it on the first try and didn't have to do it a second time haha. 
Then I layered that piece with another piece of whisper white, just to give it a 'raised beveled' look. 

On a Piece of Whisper White, i cut it to fit on the card, then determined where i was going to place my decorative strip. I drew a line in pencil just above the bottom of where it would sit. I then used my marker to color the 'thanks' portion of the "Awesome, Thanks" stamp from the Yippee Skippee set. I stamped it just below the line i had drawn. again, i lucked out and it worked the first time! :oD
I adhered the decorative strip, then used my Simply Scored to create the diagonal embossed lines above the strip and below the wording. Lastly I added a couple strips of rhinestones  to finish it off and make it look purrty.

Can You Picture It?

This weeks challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a Picture Inspiration Challenge!

I happen to like polka dots, so i was inspired by the polka dots on the blue plate in the upper right. Of course, the flowers were a part of it too :o)
