Happy For You–C4C #199


Hey, peeps, it’s
Crazy 4 Challenges time! Our challenge this week is this gorgeous sketch! Even though I did go all A2 on it, I still love it!


I started with a Primitive White card stock base and added a layer of patterned paper in a neutral pattern. Then I added a Die-namics Open Scallop Doily Duo and a Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX element. I stamped the sentiment, from LJD Blissful Butterflies, on half of a Die-namics Pierced Circle STAX die cut and added a Die-namics Dotted Scallop Border Trio strip for the “header”, cut from Paver Red card stock. The focal image is from LJD Blissful Butterflies stamped on a Die-namics LJD Blissful Butterflies die cut. To finish it off, added a few sequins for balance.

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set:


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
