Betsy's Serviette Challenge

At the very last lunch, on the very last day at the camp in New Zealand, I was shovelling evil amounts of dessert into my mouth when a few of the ladies around me noticed the beautiful serviettes we had been provided.

In jumped Miss Betsy with a challenge: make a card with this serviette. Never one to shy away from a challenge, I accepted with the proviso that I be given extra time to make my card because of all the travelling I had to do and the jet lag (?!) I would have to deal with upon my return.

Roll forward a couple of weeks, Miss Betsy has just posted her beautiful card here, which reminded me to edit my photos and post mine too. Here t'is:

I stuck the serviette to some cardstock and cut around lots of the little pieces and mounted them with mounting squares to create a paper tole effect. Here's a side shot:

Lots of little squares! The stamp is from Darkroom Door's All Occasions set.

I enjoyed making this card immensely, and I'm extra happy with myself for having my mother's day card sorted a whole month early.

Betsy, thank you so much for the challenge. I'm thinking up something fiendish to challenge you with, so stay tuned!



  1. Well, what a stupid thing to challenge Teresa Abajo!! I did notice that evil glint in her eye!
    Your card is fabulous Teresa and what a lot of cutting out you have done. Just love it and waiting on tender hooks for your next challenge!! Love Betsy xxx

  2. That is so lovely. There are so many lovely serviettes around these days aren't there? You have made good use of this one.

  3. What a beauty , you certainly deserved that pudding. Love all the attention to detail and the colours are so rich. have a good week.
