mini-VSBN Challenge 5 - St. Louis Cathedral

I made one final DPS last night before Roy began pouting. :) That means I have challenges 6-8 left to complete by Sunday. I really want to get them all done.

Challenge 5 was to use one of Sally's sketches (always awesome). I made it into a double page spread. This on is not Stampin' Up only because I had these lime green chipboard letters I wanted to use, so I threw in some Paper Studio paper and Primas as well. These were taken last February when I attended SERA in New Orleans. I had been to NO once before, but was only there to board a cruise ship and we didn't even stop. I spent five days there last year (the week after Mardi Gras). It was truly an eye-opening experience.

Paper: real red, only orange, whisper white, Paper Studio "blue with green dots" and "green with white stitches"
Ink: real red, only orange
Stamps: Doodle This
Accessories: wal-mart chipboard letters, Primas, brads, SU bold bright brads

thanks for leaving me some blog love. the crinkled paper is a faux ribbon technique that shelli showed on stage at convention 1 1/2 years ago (when it was in Denver) And that cute stamp is available at unity.com I think it is $3.50!!! I love SU! but I love the unmounted and singles option (vs sets) that other companies offer.
thanks again! Marti haller
