I love reading through all of the challenges and then designing my card around them. The sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday started me off. As you can see, I rotated it. I next picked this adorable digi image from Digital Doodling and I wanted her to look springy (Pile it On). I was inspired by the photo at Hope Stamps Eternal, and decided to take on the pink and brown challenge at C.R.A.F.T., so I colored my image accordingly and distressed the edges. I also decided to do the no patterned paper at Paper Play. As such, I took a piece of pink Cooredinations card stock and tore it (Die Cut Dreams ) , distressed it further with inks (Crafty Creations, Prairie Fairy and Tellen's Place), and then embossed it using my Cuttlebug leafy branch. I next layered on my image, flowers (A Crafty Little Place, Digital Tuesday, and S2G), an embossed brown circle, and my sentiment. The pink and brown flowers are from a package I bought eons ago but never opened (Fab 'n Funky) and the pink flower I punched out and embossed with swiss dots. At Practical Scrappers they want you to try and use floss, so I threaded floss through my 3 buttons. Anything goes at Penny's Paper and Sew Many Cards, so I don't want to leave them out. This is a card for a special lady inspired by Pixie Cottage. It is definitely one for the girls (Magical Crafts and Townscrappers )....so phew! Those are the challenges that inspired this card. I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for stoppping by today!
