The challenge over at the CASual Fridays CFC72 is to "toot your own horn." In other words, design a card based on your own blog header. I really don't have a blog header, but the template I use has blue skies with white clouds, so that's how this card came to be. The smiley face is by Stampendous, and the sentiment is from SU! So Many Sayings. The punched stars were done with SU! bashful blue card stock.
MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge #127 which is "circles." I cut assorted sizes of circles with black & white card stock and glued them on a piece of kraft, then embossed it using a square lattice ef. I added a scalloped border, some ribbon and a sentiment from SU!
Shopping our Stash challenge #71 which is to "go green - use something recycled or the color green." I recycled some scraps of green dsp for this and added a green prima flower I've had in my stash for years! I cut squares and rounded off 2 corners to create the flower and used random strips of dsp for the sentiment panel. The sentiment is by MFP Thankful Mums and Pumpkins set. I need to make more of these to use up those scraps and flowers in my stash!
OWH Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown to make a "thinking of you" card. I made a herringbone background by using strips from the Tim Coffey Autumn paper pad, and punched the really rust border using an EK punch. I added colorful leaves and acorns by punching the border in different autumn colors of scraps. The leaf accents are stickers a friend gave me, and the sentiment is from SU! Field Flowers.
Thanks for staying with me for this long post and I wish you a wonderful Wednesday!
