I’ve been invited to be a guest designer on the Color Challenge team for the month of August! It’s always so fun to be a part of such a talented team!
This week Barbara had chosen Coastal Cabana, Polished Punk, and Basic Black.
I’ve combined my card with this week’s Technique Lover’s Challenge and made my faux handmade paper by daubing white and the closest thing I had to Coastal Cabana on black cardstock. The instructions said to also daub metallic but I opted for a simple gold rub around the edges. Barbara’s choice of birds for dessert had me looking for a stamp with a bird and flower. I bought this sweet Stampendous Cling Cherry Bird stamp at a clearance sale recently and knew these colors were perfect for it!
But, wait, that’s not all. I was also invited to be a guest designer on the Sketch Challenge team for the next six months! I had so much fun the last time I was on this team, I stayed on for a whole year!
A friend of mine asked me to make an 80th birthday card for someone who loves to sew. I didn’t have room on the front of this card for an “80”, but it says “Happy 80th birthday” inside. On the outside, I chose this adorable Penny Black Sew Nice stamp and a quilted look to the background. I bought this at the same clearance sale as the Cherry Bird. That was a good day. And isn’t this PTI sentiment just wonderful and perfect for this card?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
