Here’s a little peek at my card:
Join me over at Hero for more!
Hi all! I am thrilled to be the November guest designer over at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog — many many thanks to Laurel for asking me! I had an absolute blast!
I would have posted this sooner but I have had the worst cold — I even lost my voice for a few days there. So not fun! I had to keep working through it all as it’s a super busy time of the year over at Hero Arts — as in, we have all been super busy working on the 2014 Catalog! Crazy times! But it’s at the printer’s now, whew!
Anyhow, enough of that — back to the current challenge! We’re being challenged to use polka dots for this one. This is no great challenge for me as I LOVE polka dots!
I decided to make my polka dots out of paper from the Peace Joy Love paper pad – just love these little birdies so much!
I just love how the birdie stamp from the Peace Joy Love stamp set coordinates with the paper! WAH!
To see what the Design Team came up with and enter the challenge, click on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog! There are some awesome cards!
The current challenge is about using a sentiment, so I thought for a while about how to make a sentiment really stand out. I finally decided to break out my peace love joy set and build a tree from all the awesome messages included in the set. Just love this set so much! Here’s what I cam up with:
I jazzed them up even more by water coloring over top. I hand drew the trunk and colored it in.
And then! I couldn’t resist adding some sequins from the collection, too!
I finished it off with some paper from the coordinating peace joy love 6×6 paper pad — the peppermint stripes just kill me!
Just love how this turned out! And! There’s still time to enter the Lawnscaping challenge — click on over here to find out more and see what the design team came up with! There are some fabulous cards using sentiments in creative ways! The winner will receive a gift card from Simon Says Stamp, woo!
Peace, love, joy,
