Hello My Friends!!
I hope you are enjoying a leisurely Holiday Weekend!! I have been busy making cards for the Operation Write Home 4th of July Virtual Card Making Party. There are 6 challenges each day for Friday, Saturday and today. You can join in at any time if you would like! It is really a lot of fun to do the challenges and try new techniques that you might not normally do on a card. Today I am going to share a card with you that I made for the 2:00 pm Challenge yesterday at Bobbi's Treasures
which was to create a card with at least 3 textures on it, here is my card:
What do you think? Did I make the challenge? For this A2 card I started with tan cardstock for the base of the card. Next I cut some brown paper with the Die-Versions Whispers Morroco Background die and added that to the card base. Next I cut out the Memory Box Poppy Flower die twice, once in pink paper and once in green for the stem. I inked the edges of the flowers and placed them on the stems. Next I attached the flowers to a piece of Graphic 45 green floral paper, inked the egdes with green ink and backed that with a solid green paper. I attached some brown ribbon on the card and then placed the matted poppy on the card. Next I stamped the Inspired by Stamping stamp in brown ink on the solid green paper and matted that with the Graphic 45 paper and added that to the card. I added a Bo Bunny brad underneath the stamp. I love the way it turned out, I don't know if I would have put all those elements together if it weren't for the challenge!!
I hope I have inspired you to create something today! I appreciate and read all your comments! Why not join in on one of the challenges. I hosted a challenge on Friday at 2:00 pm to make a Red, White & Blue Birthday card. You can see the challenge here! You can also check out the cards I have made for the other Challenges on my Pinterest account!
