This week we will have a Pick 3 Challenge. I like those because they give you a lot of leeway. These are the things you get to choose from:
- The color green
- An animal
- Fun Flock
You know the drill...pick 3 of the 6 and make a card using those 3, then post a link to the comment section. And here is my creation:
Since we have a lot of birthdays this month, I made this card for my youngest granddaughter. She will be 7, and the colors are bright and vibrant, and something she'll love.
Anyway, for the challenge I chose a bird (animal), the color green, a scalloped border punch, and the celebrate sentiment for her birthday. The colors are very bright (they don't show well in the scan). I stamped the bird and colored him first, I colored the hat with bright colors, then added glitter glue for some bling. Then I punched him out with a nestability punch. I wanted him "out of the box", so I followed the directions on Split Coast Stampers to accomplish this.
Then I layered the cut out image on a green layer, then a red layer. I stamped "celebrate" onto yellow cardstock with green ink, then punched it out with a Fiskars scallop border punch. I used a ruler to make faux stitches across the top. I adhered everything to the patterned background. Inside it says "a little birdy told me it's your birthday." Emilie will love it.
I hope you have a great week. Even though I will be in the keys resting and relaxing, I will still have a blog entry for you next week, so see you then. Maybe if we have enough people who take the challenge and post a link (10 or more), I will give out blog candy and/or stamps. So tell your friends to get busy and post a link. ;-)
One last thing before I leave...over at Rubber Stamp Chat they are having a virtual stamp convention from Thursday, May 6th - Monday, May 10th
