Ducks in a Row

This week's Stamp Simply (how about no stamping at all?--with this adorable new paper, no stamping is required!--more about that further on...) Challenge (ssnotime129), is submitted by Tammy, one of the Stamp Simply Design Team members: Use a border punch, or something that replicates a border... I went with a literal definition for tonight's challenge, using an EK Success "Dotted Wave Border Punch" (Our Daily Bread designs).

I'm so excited about this new designer paper! It's October Afternoon's 8 X 8" "Ducks in a Row," available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! There are two other dp pads available as well: "Road Map," and my very favorite "Report Card"!!! (Look forward to a fun upcoming design using Report Card at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team challenge, March 9th!) The background papers in my photo are also from the "Ducks in a Row" dp pad. Check them out!

Ultra Fine Sage Flower Soft (Flower Soft USA) was used for some grass-like dimension...
May Art's Ivory Twill, May Art's Ivory String (both Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), and a Foof-a-la "Indian Summer" button add final details to this fun, stamp free design.
