Inspired Birthday–C4C #136


Happy Saturday! It’s Crazy 4 Challenges time and I’m the host for this month. I’ve chosen a inspiration piece for this week’s challenge. Be inspired by the colors, the shapes whatever, just go with it :)


For my card, I let myself be inspired by the colors. I went with the Kraft, blues, and pinks. I’m using MFT’s More Essential Sentiments, stamped on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon fishtail flag, popped up on part of a Die-namics Layered Label set for my focal image. I used Die-namics High Tea Doily for the left upper corner element, some bling, and some Die-namics Pretty Posies flowers and Die-namics Royal Leaves. A little stitching and some inky distressing finished it off.

Here is the inside with another sentiment from the set.


Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:

And that's all for me for me! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you! Before we get into that, though, we have a couple of announcements to make. Lynda Benden, one of the original Crazies, is leaving Crazy 4 Challenges to spend more time with her family. We will miss Lynda but I know we all understand her reason and wish her the best. You know what they say, when one door closes, another one opens. Into that open door walks Betty Wright, a brand new Crazy! Several of us on the team have worked with Betty in the past and love her and her work and we know you will too! So, be sure to stop by the C4C blog and say good bye to Lynda and hello to Betty!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C136.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
