On the first challenge of each month we'll have a sponsor who will provide a prize for some lucky participant. You can get all the deets at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This month our sponsor is Stampin' Bella, and I'm using daydreamabella on my card.
Summer's about gone and I wanted to use this luscious Lemonade paper from Basic Grey again, so that's the color scheme I went with. Bella is stamped on Pure Luxury 80lb paper by Gina K. Designs and colored with Copic markers--except for Bella's pants--I paper pieced them. Then I cut it out with a circle Nestabilities die and matted it with DP, cut/embossed with a larger die. Then the image element was popped up on 3M foam squares. The only card stock I used was Whisper White for the base--everything else is DP. The word balloon was originally oriented to the right, but that wouldn't work with the sketch, so I stamped it separately, cut it out, and popped it up on 3M foam squares. Kiwi Kiss ribbon, a crocheted flower (yep, another one of mine), and a PTI Vintage button in Aqua Mist tied on with Perle cotton complete the sketch!
NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy4Challenges team--this awesome group is gonna' WOW you (still wondering what I'm doing here, but I'm not leaving ;-))!
THEN, we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the sketch and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy4Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project, and not your blog. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C1.
I'm so glad you dropped by today for the maiden voyage of Crazy4Challenges--we're in for a wild ride!
