For someone who hasn't made very many cards, I sure do get excited when http://www.funfrilled.blogspot.com/ posts their weekly card challenge! The ladies over there are so talented and inspiring! This week the challenge is fairly simple...create an Easter themed card! You really must go check out Fun Frilled...they have a fab giveaway up for grabs during April!
& it just so happens that the card challenge @ http://www.scrapjazz.com/ is to create a spring themed card with at least one flower...
& I used the April card sketch @ http://www.coordinatescollections.com/ ...so I decided I could create one card that worked for 3 challenges...love it when that happens!
So here's my take on the challenges wrapped up into one:
I used pp from We R Memory Keepers, ribbon by Martha Stewart, a brad by K & Co Wild Saffron, and stamps by Stampin' Up & Studio G along with ink from Stampin' Up and a bit of machine stitching. I also rounded the corners of my card for a softer look. Almost forgot my trusty Fiskars Threading Water border punch...I just love that punch!!!
Here's a close up of the flower I created using small circles folded into thirds. I "lifted" this idea from the most recent Creating Keepsakes magazine!
Thanks for looking! Wonder who is going to be receiving this cute little Easter card in the mail??? Have a great night!
