Two’s Company – Deb Neerman provides a second challenge for us this month. Today Deb is suggesting that two’s company … three’s a crowd? That’s true because this week we challenge you to use “2 of Something” on your card or other project. Some fun twosomes include: 2 different patterned papers, 2 different stamped images, 2 brads, 2 flowers, 2 bows, or 2 charms. Be creative … but don’t add that third ‘something’ … only 2 are allowed! Have fun with this one!!!
Anyone is welcome and invited to play! SCS Keyword is ssnotime149 for those who upload at SCS. There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all. The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!!

And today I have a vintage Baby Congratulations Card to show you:
In keeping with the challenge I used two sheets of designer paper, two ribbons, two buttons, two pearls, two rounded corners, two sides completed (inside and out), but please, PLEASE, don’t look at all those rhinestones on my corner flourish — they just HAD to be there — truly, they did!!! LOL!!!! Two rhinestones just did NOT cut it — so I HAD to do the right thing and add the rest!!!
Paper: Webster’s Pages Combo 6×6 Pack (Lullaby/Life)
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black (my fav for crisp, dark sentiments)
I used some brand new ribbon today that May Arts will be showcasing at CHA — it’s the 1.5″ Crochet Lace with Velvet Center — I am TOTALLY swooning over this lush, vintage looking ribbon. You can see it in all colors below. I have it in stock and ready to ship. I also used my 100% Silk in Mauve for the Bow, made on the Bow Easy. I put a couple Kaiser Pearls on my bow knot to dress it up a bit.
And here’s the card inside – LOVE this Webster’s pad for vintage looking projects and there are so many sheets in it just adorable for baby, but being 2-sided sheets, you don’t need to use them all for baby projects if you don’t have babies in your life.
Sweetpea, Black, Pink, Antique Gold, Brown
1.5″ Crochet Lace with Velvet Center
$3.30/yard OR $30/10 yd spool
All items used on today’s vintage baby card are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store — linked above.

Hopefully on Saturday I’ll be back with a post showing you all the NEW May Arts ribbons I have in stock. If you like pretty, shiny, sparkly, pleats, etc. you’ll find something to interest you, I’m sure!!! The new ribbons May Arts will be showcasing at CHA are wonderful and I’m so pleased to have my favorites in stock to share with you — check back in on Saturday!
Thanks much for stopping in today — I truly do appreciate all your visits and the time you take out of your busy schedules! MUCH appreciated! Wishing you all a great summer weekend.
