A Toile Challenge

I stamped! I feel like I have to get back in the groove. It's been almost a week since I stamped. I picked up Charles Dickens' Great Expectations to read on the flight home from Chicago. Once I start a book, I can't put it down. I'll read to the exclusion of almost all other things. So the book is done, and now I can stamp ; )

It's the third anniversary of the Dirty Dozen Design Team over at Splitcoast, so they're featuring a whole week's worth of challenges, starting with FOUR, that's right...FOUR, challenges yesterday. This card is for StamperSharon's monochromatic toile-look challenge.

Here's the lowdown:
Stamps: Tender Toile and Toile Blossoms (both SU! retired)
Ink: Ruby Red
Paper: Ruby Red, Very Vanilla
Other: JoAnn Essentials cream rick rack, sponge, cream organdy ribbon, marvy giga scallop circle punch, uniball signo white gel pen, coluzzle

This is so pretty. I think I'm fast becoming a red fan thanks to you! The scallops really bring the toile together well.

On a side note, I LOVE Great Expectations, and I'm reading it to my kids right now!
