Count Your Blessings!
This is a quick birthday card I made for a co-worker....it was nice to make a Clean and Simple card for once.....good thing I had a good sketch and some fun challenges to help me find my way! :)
I used the "Faux Tearing" technique for the first time...very fun and very easy....I tore a piece of scratch paper to mask the corner, then stamped the "Wood Background" stamp from Our Daily Bread designs over the Kraft panel; sponged over the edge of the scratch paper and edges; removed the scratch paper and stamped the sentiment from the "Blessings - the Full of Grace Collection" in the corner. Added paper piercing, pewter brads, and SU grosgrain ribbon to finish.
I have used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Our Daily Bread designs' Shining the Light Anniversary Challenge: choose from the top ten past Shining the Light Challenges.....I chose "Distressing" and "Something Old and Something New" (the old is the SU Handsome Hunter ribbon and cardstock, the new is a new technique, "Faux Tearing", which I had not done before);
Christian Paper Crafts: Fun on Friday Challenge: "Faux Tearing", the Clean and Simple Saturday Challenge from today..."Paper Piercing", and the Clean and Simple Saturday Sketch from a few weeks ago;
One Stop Craft Challenge: Numbers;
Our Creative Corner: Use a tree image;
Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast: I chose these Teak Wood Coasters from the Uncommon Goods online store....very fun store...check it out!!;
Little Red Wagon: Kraft.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! God Bless!!
