Wild Raspberry Door Hanger

This door hanger is for my neice, Leah, who will be 14 next week! I will be making a matching card later this week. So, you know me, I like to kill many birds with one stone....I combined several challenges together. The first two are from Christian Paper Crafts: Alisa's sketch challenge, plus Cindy's Fun On Friday challenge to make a bookmark, tag, or door hanger. This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose an item from the Pylones store, which is filled with creative, fun, and colorful items! Plus, as soon as you click on their store link, a little bird instantly starts singing to "tweet"! I chose this teapot for my inspiration....the beautiful color combo reminded me of some dsp I have called "Wild Raspberry" from K and Company. The teal pearls are Basic Grey Opaline, and I stamped the sentiment with "Siren" colored Smooch. Please note: to stamp with Smooch, you have to paint it onto the stamp, stamp it quickly, then clean your stamp immediately because it dries very quickly and you don't want to ruin your rubber with paint! It's so worth the trouble, because the metallic letters look so cool....better than embossing powder!!!

Hey, have you heard about the new challenge site, Stamping Sisters in Christ? Click on the gorgeous glittery button on the right to see the very first challenge, which happens to be hosted by Our Daily Bread Designs. You have until next Saturday to upload your entry there for a chance to win the "Happy Birthday" set from ODBD!!! Good luck!!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned tomorrow for a link to the Smooch Tutorial and Product Review on the ODBD blog! Have a blessed day!
