Happy Sunday! I woke up this morning ready and excited to get started on some awesome challenges. I have pushed myself again to combine 4 different challenges into one card. The first challenge I entered was the SplitCoast Stampers Featured Stamper Challenge FS153. After looking at the gorgeous gallery by today's featured stamper WeeBeeStampin on SCS, I chose This Card to use as my inspiration. The card I created had to be different from the featured stampers' in 2 or more ways. The way my card was made differently was mostly from the color palette. I used my favorite paper packet called Sonata from Close To My Heart. It has a musical theme which is always something that draws my attention immediately. I love it! Next I changed up her layout just a tad. Her layout was extremely similar to the second challenge I entered CPS or Card Positioning Systems so I just adjusted some of the items to fit. The sentiment used in this card was slightly different than WeeBeeStampin's inspiration. I kept a reference to music as she did however I used a stamp that I own from CTMH called "The Music of Life" The last couple challenges I entered were from Corrosive and Stampin Sisters in Christ. These are brand new blog challenges for me so I had a blast checking out their sites. The Corrosive Challenge #46 wants distressing to be used. I distressed all of the edges on m card very lightly with scissors. I usually like to ink the edges of my projects as well but decided to keep this project looking light. The Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge was to use this scripture: Hosea 6:1 "Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds." The challenge is to make your project look as though it was broken and put back together again. Last but not least I added some pretty embellishments of Cocoa Grosgrain ribbon, Hollyhock Ricrac ribbon, spiral clip a love charm!
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out some of these great challenges!
