While looking this morning online for some current challenges to get me inspired, I found three of them that I decided to play along with on my card today. I haven't had the opportunity to check on SCS's challenges for a long time but found Friday's How does your Garden Grow challenge too enticing not to play along. So, I picked out some fun garden themed papers from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety Mini deck and this beautiful Sweet & Sassy Poppy Digital image (did you see there is a sale going on until the end of the month with their digital images!!) and went to look for a sketch that would work with the image. This week's Card Patterns sketch was perfect!
Since the Simon Says Challenge this week is to make a birthday card, I choose to use a celebrate sentiment from PTI's Autumn Abundance set. Here's a closeup of that amazing poppy image ...
Stamps: Poppy Digital Image (Sweet & Sassy); Autumn Abundance and for the inside sentiment - Inside/Out: Birthday (PTI)
Ink: Memento black; SU river rock
Card stock: PTI white for digital image; Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety
Other: Spellbinder Circle & Petite oval (for inside); SU oval punches; sewing machine; copic markers; MFT scallop die; seam binding ribbon; pearl back; dauber
and the inside view...
Thanks for checking in on me today!
