Lavender & Peppermint

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Liz Williams our challenge hostess for the month finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently Monday 29th August is More Herbs, Less Salt Day!! Herbs and plants add so much to our lives, so in honor of this unusual day, make a card with an herb or plant on it. I know we have lots of followers who love gardening, so any of these images would work great. You might even want to add colors that are named after herbs and plants: sage, thyme, lavender, cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, celery, olive, or cocoa, as well as all those you can think of. 

I wasn't sure if I had any herb stamps, but then I remembered some I had from my early days on the MFT Stamps Design Team so I was able to dig those out to use on my card. As you can see I have created an Accordion Card using the Oval Accordion Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I also added the corners from the Oval Landscape Accordion die set on all the pages of my card. 

Here is my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.
