KSS Crew Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone!! Kim and I made it back safe and sound - although very tired - Saturday evening from CHA in Orlando. We had such a great time!! Saw and met so many great people and even got to do a bit of shopping at the Super Show on Friday! I'm sorry to say that I forgot my camera's memory card so I was camera-less :( But I will get some from Kim and share a few with you hopefully tomorrow. It was a quick trip but just so much fun!!

Today is a new month which means it's time for a new Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew Challenge. This month we have a guest challenger, Emilia. Emilia won Crew Challenge #9 and earned the honor to Guest Hostess this challenge - #16. Her challenge is to Decorate Your Card Corners.
For my card today I chose to use some of the new sets released last month, 3 Step Letters From the Past and Big Bold Swashes (which are hard to see, but are stamped behind the text on the card base). The sentiment is from 3 Step School Days. I stamped the text from 3 Step Letters From the Past using Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink) ink - what a neat look this stamp gives you!
I'm not sure if Emilia wanted us to embellish all our corners but I just embellished one - with a nice big button from Papertrey Ink (one of my CHA purchases!).
Now it's your turn! You have 3 weeks to complete the challenge and add you link to the KSS blog. Check out the blog for all the information you need. And be sure to visit the other KSS Crew members to see what they came up with for the challenge!
