A "CHALLENGE" of a card in honor of Earth Day...

at http://www.funfrilled.blogspot.com/ the challenge this week is to create a card using scraps & bits/pieces of things...to honor Earth Day! I don't keep ALL of my scraps, but the majority of them for sure! So I THOUGHT this would be an easy card to create...WRONG!!! It seems that what I originally envisioned didn't quite come to be! First, I couldn't get my Fiskars punch to punch thru thick kraft cardstock, pp layers & adhesive...I seriously thought I was going to break my faithful punch...that would not have been good! So I had to cut off the whole side & try again...then I was going to do some fun machine zig zag stitching to finish off some of the edges. Well, it seems that after sewing the chenille patch on the back of my son's letter jacket this past weekend, I have somehow tweeked the presser foot on my machine...& now it won't lower all the way...grrr...so I resorted to doing some hand stitching...I love that too!



I also did some inking along the edges with some new VersaMagic ink (thanks to a Fun Frilled contest that I won goodies for!!!) I stamped the sentiment with the same ink & popped the image up with pop dot type adhesive for dimension and added the fun PINK flower & brad! I love this cute flower...but it just was never going to find a home on the many BOY layouts that I do!






Thanks for looking...go check out http://www.funfrilled.blogspot.com/! They have a fantastic contest going during the month of April with nearly $300 worth of goodies up for grabs!

Take care & have a great night!!!
