Simon Says Stamp is having a "let's get krafty" challenge this week and of course, that's to use kraft-colored cardstock. They're also showcasing Memory Box products, so I pulled out my MB prim poppy die along with my kraft cardstock and got busy! I cut the poppies with kraft and a snippet of dsp, adhering the dsp pieces on top of the kraft. I glued them to a black oval and added a white scalloped oval to frame them. I added a few matching butterflies and tiny black gemstones along with a thinking of you sentiment. I'm really happy with the clean look of this card and plan to make several more in different colors.
There's a new challenge that just began this week called "the Butterfly Spot Challenge#1" and their first challenge is to use butterflies and flowers, so I'm also entering my card there.
Deconstructed Sketch #138, and the wheels began turning. After laying the 3 diagonal pieces down, I decided to edge the main panel with the striped washi. I took scraps of white and placed the solid gold washi down, and punched out the tiny banner and larger flower with SU! punches, embossing them with a SU! square lattice ef to hide the seams. The smaller flower was done with a new SU! petite petals punch, and I found a matching brad to hold them together. The sentiment is from SU!
Thanks for checking in and stay tuned - I might have something later today too!
