Trio Challenge: Day 1

I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend with two incredibly talented and lovely girls this summer: Jennifer McGuire and Kathy Racoosin.  While together, we decided we'd have a three way blog challenge:
Take one stamp and 3 styles and see what happens.
Jennifer's style = distress inks.
Kathy's = colouring.
Mine = patterned paper.
So here is my Day 1 card, using Penny Black's 'A Thorney Affair'.

I paired it with THIS cute sentiment, and some fun patterned paper I found buried in my stash!  I stamped the cute hedgehog on kraft cardstock, and inked with distress ink.  The holly was stamped on green polka paper, then inked and covered in Glossy Accents.  Lovely shiny holly leaves. :)

Now make sure you check to see what the incredible Jennifer and Kathy have done with the same stamp.

Wow Lucy! I so love this. I love the vinatage and distressed feel to this but then it kind of takes another step and becomes so bold and vibrant with that cute porcupine. This is amazing and your use of papers and embellishments are outstanding as always. Hugs.
