Challenge - plain cardstock & stamps

This scrapbook page was inspired by a challenge - use only plain colored card stock, stamps, and pearls!  I wasn't at all sure how well I could do with this challenge, but was quite happy with the end result!

As you can see, I DID use my Silhouette to cut the title and mats.  I also used a cardmaker punch to frame the focal photo. The border stamp I used was about 5" long and hard to line up exactly.  The little red pearls placed at these join points effectively hid the minor variations.

Great use of the color in the pic. Your chef is doing a fine job. But your LO makes it all fall together. Fantastic job as usual.
