Fuchsia Crazy!



This card will be for my neice's 21st birthday next week. This was a labor of love which took many, many hours....I hope she loves it! I have used a new set from Our Daily Bread designs, called "From Me To You", along with lots of Zva Creative Pearls, K and Co "Wild Raspberry" designer paper, several layers of Pearl Glimmer Mist, and some twill ribbon tied with a Bow Easy. The fuchsias were stamped three times, two of them cut out with paper snips and an exacto knife and popped up for dimension....this took a while! lol!!



I have used seven challenges for this card. Gloria's Sketch Tuesday challenges over at Christian Paper Crafts are always a blast....I really enjoyed this one...it was definitely a challenge! Also, the Stamping Sisters In Christ Challenge PLUS the Shabby Tea Room both had "heart" challenges, so I made a 5-layer button with a heart punch and a cropodile! The Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week was to use trees and nature....so I used a butterfly, fuchias, and floral paper. The Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose an item from the Layla Grace site....I chose this gorgeous crib bedding set. The OCC Challenge theme this week is Summer Time. And last but not least, the Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab blog was to use this photo as your inspiration....such fabulous, bright colors, so I just HAD to use this for my neice's birthday card!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!!!
