Skipping Stones Design Challenge and Blog Hop!

Its challenge time again at Skipping Stones Design and today we have an inspiration photo for you!  Its also Blog Hop time and if you hopped here from Pamela's blog then you are right where you should be!


We are also featuring the set Darling Damask this week, so be sure to hop around and see all the lovely cards made with this gorgeous set!


For my card I wanted to bring out the gorgeous texture of this set so I embossed two different damask borders in Stardust embossing Powder (from Stampendous).  I used one border to create a background on the gray paper and one to create a border on the cream paper.  Both are embossed in the same color.


I also added one of the many sentiments from the set and a touch of taffeta ribbon :)

We hope you join us this week for our challenge!  AND did you notice that SSD is doing a Design Team Call?!  We need 5 new Design Tramps ad one could be you!  Be sure to check out the post HERE.

After you have hopped, don’t forget to go back to the SSD site and link up YOUR take on our inspiration photo.  Remember, this must be a new project, entered in no more than 5 challenges, and we must be able to see the inspiration or have an explanation from you as to how you were inspire. Oh, and you don’t have to use our stamps, but we LOVE it when you do!  The winner of this challenge will be announced next Wednesday and will win a FREE Skipping Stones set of choice!

Now from here, hop over to Wendy's Blog and see what she has for you!  If you get lost, here's the hop order for today:
