Me So Corny

Ok, that title just cracks me up! For the new challenge at Caardvarks, we're gathering inspiration from a photograph...create a card that is inspired by this photo. Upload it to the Caardvarks Flickr Gallery by December 3rd at Midnight PST for a chance to win a spot as our Guest Designer for the Caardvarks 2009 kick-off challenge on January 1st! We'll be choosing several Guest Designers to help us begin a creative 2009 with a card challenge.To find instructions on posting to our Gallery, click here. Good luck!

My card features an OLD stamp that was just gathering dust. After some hand coloring I knew that I wasn't going to be happy with just that. Something bit me to dig deeper in my stash, and I came up with some wonderful tiny amber, rust and brown beads. I glued each one on individually using Glossy Accents, turning each bead to the side to make sure that the hole did not show. It was piddly work, but totally worth it! Can't wait to see what you make.
