This is a birthday card for my friend, Chris Perkins....I hope she likes it!! There are so many awesome challenges this week....it's so much fun to make a list of challenges and try to squeeze them all in!!
This week's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast is to choose one of the antique items from the Blue Carrot Shop.....what a fun store!! Though it was fun to see a lot of household items from my youth, I was very interested to see all of the letterpress blocks, how the letters were stained from different colors of inks......boy, technology sure put an end to a lot of printing presses!!! This set of letters reminded me of this vintage designer paper from K & Co "Madeline". Also at Splitcoast this week, the Free4All challenge is "Show Us What You Got"....show us some new stuff....that would be these awesome 3d flowers!
This week at Christian Paper Crafts, our featured artist for Wednesday Case Artist is the uber-talented Anita! Check out her awesome gallery HERE!!! I chose this gorgeous card to re-create, using some new Ornare 3d flower kits, which will be in the ODBD store soon!!! Also, at CPC, the Fun on Friday challenge is to use either wet or dry embossing.....I love my new Polka Dots embossing folder!!
Some other challenges incorporated for this project:
Aud Sentiments: NO sentiment
Stampin B's: Polka Dots
Party Time Tuesdays: Outside In (decorate inside)
Shabby Tea Room: Embossing
Freshly Brewed Challenges: summertime
Here is the inside view....for the "Outside In" challenge listed above! These two stamps are from the Our Daily Bread designs' set, "Happy Birthday". The pearls are Zva Creative.
This fun card I made for my husband.....shhhh....it's a surprise!!! Today is actually my birthday, however, I have been planning a surprise party for my hubby for today to celebrate his big promotion at work.....he works for Target Distribution Center in Indianapolis, hence, the target card!!!! He thinks that his parents are taking us out tonight for my birthday dinner, but all of his family and mine will be there to celebrate HIM!!! I can't wait to see his face!!!!!
This card was so fun to make......and I was able to squeeze in some challenges for this one as well:
Meljen's Designs: circles galore
Sketch and Stash: to make a circle card....plus I used some Hero Arts Metallic Dots which I bought at Archiver's and forgot about!
Paper Sundaes: white plus one
Sentimental Sundays: celebrations
Crazy 4 Challenges: red, black, and white
Free4All Challenge: show something new (metallic dots)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! Have a blessed weekend!!!!
