Embrace Life ~ Poppy Seed/Embellish/Free For All
It's always fun to find a new creative challenge...and this week, I found TWO of them...the Poppy Seed Challenge at Lisa Johnson's Poppy Paperie blog and the Free For All Challenge. I combined these two new challenges, Poppy Seed Challenge #1 which requires crystals, flower stamp, and light yellow...and Free For All #1 at Splitcoaststampers to use texture, one color that you rarely use, and patterned paper. The Embellish Color Challenge with Borders was also a MUST for this lively card, using the colors green, yellow, pink & peach.
Can you guess which color I haven't used in a LONG time? Groovy Guava was an In Color in 2008...the big shocker was that I found several sheets of this cardstock and a couple of sheets of designer series paper:)
How cute are the little crystals? They are from the new Eggcelent Eggs Kit in the Occasions Mini Catalog...and I'm thinking that I heard these crystals will be offered again...YAY!
I'm not very happy with the ribbon treatment...this skinny ribbon is a little more difficult to "poof" up:)
If you're in the mood for a new challenge, go check these out...you're sure to find some inspiration! Check back here tomorrow for a new Curtain Call Color Challenge...and a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT that you won't want to miss!
