Happy Thursday! I've got a card to share today that uses quite a few challenges. This is one of those cards the took a different direction than I had planned. I worked for hours on this. It's one of those cards that I may never give away. I love the end result, but I had to walk away from it yesterday. NOTHING was working the way I wanted. I think that is what I have to do a lot when I am creating. Just walk away. Take a breather. Then come back refreshed. Voila! It all falls in place. I so envy those that can just whip up a card. Presto...just like that and it is awesome. Not me. I'm like that turtle from yesterday. SLOW. I think that crafting is the only area in my life where I am a bit anal.
This card using several of the things sitting in my reject pile. I think that is my last, rejected, embossed bird:) The heart is from Basic Grey Cappella collection. The adhesive on the back of those things is awful! It's like slime. I removed it and adhered it with my glue gun. That crinkled ribbon is my own. I really hope to have that up for sale when I get back from vacation. I think I may take the Etsy "plunge." One thing that I have to note because I know you can't tell from the picture is that side panel. It is card stock that is wrapped in Tulle. I love tulle lately. This card is full of texture and layers. So unlike anything I've been doing lately.
So here are the challenges that inspired this card:
Caardvaarks- July Birthday Challenge
Stamp Something- Recipe~ 1 image, 1 DP, 1 ribbon ( I technically only have one stamped image)
The Sweetest Thing Sketch
Just For Fun Color Challenge- Cream, Brown, Light Blue
Moxie Fab- Let's Do Vintage and Shabby (my favorite!)
I should have one more post before I leave for camping. See you tomorrow!
