My Pink Stamper Challenge: Green, Yellow, & Brown
So, I was web-surfing today in all my infinite free time(Ha ha ha!), and saw that My Pink Stamper (www.mypinkstamper.com)had a challenge posted for today. The challenge was to create a card using the colors green, yellow, and brown. Ironically, I already had a card created using those colors and Basic Grey paper, but decided to put my creativity to work instead of using an "old" card design. I am very pleased at how this thank you butterfly card turned out! I'd love to hear your feedback!
Here's what I used: *11" of Green Cardstock, folded in half to make a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card *Brown paper cut 5 1/4" and distressed on edges, then inked with Stampin' Up Close to Cocoa *Green print paper cut 5" with brown ribbon taped 3/4" from the bottom *"Thanks" stamped in SU Close to Cocoa on 3/4" x 7/8" yellow; mounted on brown to create a border; Two 3D Dots underneath for dimension *Butterfly cut using Gypsy Wanderings: Top cut at 3 3/4" and Shadow cut at 4" Shadow is inked with SU More Mustard *Bling is Martha Stewart Brown Gemstones
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
