Good Monday to all! I enjoy working from challenges; they are always a good jumping off point. Today I chose two to light a spark under my mojo: Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge Challenge #57 and Create with Connie and Mary #140 Sketch Challenge. The In Colors are such terrific ones to work with but even though I found them to be more of a challenge than I thought, I managed to pull them together to satisfy me. You can also see that I changed up the circle in the sketch with the lattice die cut.
My card base is Poppy Parade card stock. I ran a piece of Pear Pizzazz through the Big Shot using a Texturz Plate and added it to the front of the card stock. I ran one piece each of Sunny Garden designer series paper, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride card stock through the Big Shot with the Lattice Bigz Die. Using liquid glue, I overlapped them staggering each layer a little. A bow was made with Pear Pizzazz ribbon and the tails weaved through the bottom of the lattice. I attached a piece of Blushing Bride card stock behind the bow and lattice and adhered the whole thing to the front of the card. The flowers were made with the Boho Blossoms punch, the retired spring flower bouquet punch and Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Poppy Parade card stock. I added Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride brads to the center of each flower and attached them to the lattice with glue dots. Some cheerful colors to hopefully encourage spring to come quickly. I recently posted my 100th blog so sometime in the next couple of days I will be offering some blog candy to celebrate. Check back and take a chance at winning. See you then.
