The only good thing about Mondays is that it is the day we have a new challenge at The Pink Elephant!
This week, we have a recipe challenge:
Something Plaid, NO ribbon and any number of brads
This week, our sponsor is Wildflower Kids. They have the cutest stamps!
I used Lily Elf for my card.
First off...no laughter allowed. I just got a sewing machine and I so cannot sew!! lol I had an awful lot of fun, but my stitching is VERY random. Since I am so bad at it, I just covered the card with stitching and random strips of cardstock to make a crazy quilt look!! lol I thought that pink checked sections of the pp could pass for plaid (I know it is actually gingham, but I am calling it plaid!). I used no ribbon....that was TOUGH for me. And the snowflake on top of the punched snowflake is a brad covered with chunky glitter. I chose to just use one... Lily is colored with Copics and I added Marvy Puffy paint pen to the furry parts of her outfit. I finished her off with white gel pen accents. The paper is K&Co Brenda Walton paper that i recently got. I love it!
That was actually the second card I made for this challenge. My life is hectic right now and I am having a really hard time keeping all of my challenges straight. I thought WildFlower Kids was sponsoring next week's challenge, so I made my first card with one of my digi images that is available from Squigglefly....
I colored my turkey with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I printed two and cut the body from one and layered it with foam tape to make my turkey have more dimension. I added brads to the asterisks that seperate the words and then one to the hole in the acrylic word. The background paper on this is plaid, so I covered all the bases...NO ribbon too! lol The paper is from last year's fall matstack from DCWV.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to drop by TPE to see what the other designers created this week!
