B is for …

I’m so excited to be asked to be a Top Chef designer for the current Catered Crop challenge.    If you haven’t checked out the Catered Crop, head on over there.  The Catered Crop is not your usual challenge.  Linda provides a theme and a whole bunch of inspiring photos to get you going.  From there it is all up to you and your creativity.  

Catered Crop

 

The current challenge is all about the letter “B”.     Check out this inspiration Linda put together to get your mojo working.

 

 
I decided to use this opportunity to try something a little different.  I actually made this card with out using any stamps!  (Digi or rubber).   In the end I ended up adding a sentiment using a stamp, but still that’s pretty good.

“B”  is for Butterflies, Birthdays, Buttons, Bows.    Maybe I could throw Blue and Brown in there too…
