SSIC Return to Paris

The Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge comes around quickly - doesn't it!?  It is always so inspiring to visit the Blog and see all that is being shared each week.  This week is no exception.  Peggysue is our hostess and has chosen a scripture from Genesis

 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.
Genesis 3:6

This weeks challenge from Peggysue should not be a hard one for most of us - we have been asked to dig in your stash and use one of your oldest stamp sets, one that hasn't seen any use for a long while - say no more! LOL!

I have used one of the first sets I remember buying and LOVE it as much today as I did back then - but it definitely does not see ink as often as it should!

The Edge border is from the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents - isn't it divine!?  This was designed by Nina Brackett - it seems most of the Dies I love Nina's - but no surprises there!  It is quick and easy to cut on the Grand Calibur - you have to love these tools that make creating so much easier - divine! 

As you can see this is very different for me - it is nearly a one layer card - imagine that!  LOL!

This card is for the following challenges:
Catch The Bug - November Anything goes
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Stamp Man - collage background
Stampavie and More - Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspiration - monochromatic
4 Crafty Chicks - Die Cuts
