Here's my take on this week's OWH Stars and Stamps sketch #217. I used this week's Dynamic Duos #DD95 colors of Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky, and Pale Plum. The image is from Deedee Anderson called "Uneggspected." If you click the link, you can find all the details to get this cute digi set for a reduced price until the end of March. If you played along with Deedee's progressive challenge last month, you already received this image for free!
The gemstones are iridescent ovals I recently got in a prize package from Pizzazz Aplenty. They're a tad larger than I would ordinarily use, but they reminded me of eggs which seemed to work with this adorable image. The flowers were done with 2 SU! punches and I added them to the sketch because the card looked unbalanced to me without them.
The digi image was printed, hand-cut, and popped up on dimensionals, so I'm entering this card into the Mod Squad challenge to "cut it out" - hand cut an image without using dies.
Here's a card I made for the OWH midweek throwdown which was "circles galore!" I was in the midst of replacing an empty tissue box while I was reading about the challenge, and as I was flattening the box for disposal, I saw all of those great circles and decided to use a panel from the box for the challenge! LOL I cut it with a Top Note die and added some assorted brads and a SU! sentiment. The sentiment was cut with SU! chalk talk framelit dies and layered on a SB labels 2 die. I embossed the background with an old CB ef and added some red ribbon and navy twine with a few tiny heart stickers to finish this one.
I'm also entering this card into the Snippets Playground #117 since I used a lot of snippets for the punched circles.
I guess today's lengthy post makes up for not posting anything yesterday! lol Thanks for hanging in for this longer-than-usual post!
Have a great Sunday and thanks for checking in :)
