And just in case you're wondering when the heck the Gilded Age and Progressive Eras were, they run consecutively from about 1873 to 1920ish. Think Robber Barons, 'muckracking', and Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. I promise to stop now with the history lesson...
Now, onto the really important things! (Just don't tell DH that I think crafting is more important than the GA&PE!!) Earlier this year, I watched as a new stamp company was launched, along with a great DT and blog. Reverse Confetti has a wonderful line of stamps, and while I haven't made any purchases yet, you can bet they are on my wish list, and I plan to rectify that situation soon. Very versatile stamps, and I urge you all to stop over and check them out. They also have a challenge....(imagine that?!!) and until the end of the year, you can play along without utilizing their brand of stamps. Thought I'd give it a try. This is the link to their challenge post. And this link will take you to their blog in general.
As I said earlier, I don't own any of their stamps as of yet, but I did want to play along. That being said, I opted not to use any stamps on the outside of this card.
And you know me...if I can use a scrap or two, I do. Those are scraps of aqua, brown, polka dot, stripes, and chevrons. I cut the tag with my Cameo and added a silver eyelet sticker, then added a scrap of yellow ribbon. There are MME enamel dots, and the phrase, Rock star circle and multi-colored stickers are from Sn@p Studio by Simple Stories. And that's it. Happy dances everyone.
