I was going to take a day off from stamping, but needed to make two get well cards, so I am squeezing in a few more challenges which couldn't be passed up. Over at Christian Paper Crafts, the Fun On Friday Challenge was to make a Clean and Simple Card and the
Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast is to case a card from Nikki Schmaltz's gallery.....I chose this gorgeous card to re-create. I have also used the Etsy Inspired Challenge, to choose an item from the "HowBeadyful" store.....when I saw this adorable strawberry locket, I knew I had to break out the Basic Grey "Nook and Pantry" paper again and use these re-purposed cut-out strawberries from a package of strawberry flavored Pocky (Japanese cookie sticks). The scripture verse comes from Our Daily Bread designs' "Scripture Series 1". The pink grosgrain bow was tied using a Bow Easy; the pearls are Basic Grey Opaline.
This week's Case Artist Saturday challenge at Christian Paper Crafts is to case a card created by my ODBD DT Sister, Debi Southard! Yay, Debi!! I chose this awesome card to re-create....I love Debi's creative CAS style....I want to be her when I grow up! :) For more of Debi's gorgeous work, check out her blog HERE. After I chose a card from Debi's gallery, I realized that the Sweet Sunday Sketch was nearly dead-on....how cool is that?! This is my first time playing in their challenges, but will definitely become a regular!! I have also used the Crafty Pad Challenge #74, to use swirls and pearls....how about "swirly pearls" instead?! The Corrosive Challenge #67 was to use die cuts on your project....I used Oval Nestabilities dies. And last but not least, the Cuttlebug Challenge #86 this week is to use the colors of aqua, pink, raspberry, and vanilla....yummy!!! This Basic Grey "Lemonade" paper was perfect! The turquoise pearls are Basic Grey and the swirly pearls are by Zva. The ribbon is May Arts and the bow was tied with a Bow Easy. This scripture verse is also from ODBD's "Scripture Series 1" .
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!!
