This Thank You card I wanted to make already last weekend, but I never got around to it as there was too much happening on TV; the Crown Princess Wedding in Sweden, then all the Worldcup games… 🙂 Anyway; today has been a glorious day with striking sunshine and temperatures around 30 degrees, so I have been sitting outside in the garden, coloring these images.
I adore my new stamps from C.C. Designs and wanted to make a card with one of those for the Fussy and Fancy challenge “Monochromatic & Wings”. I decided to use the stamp “Birgitta on a Tree Stump”, as it would fit in well with Sketch Saturday’s sketch. Silly me didn”t notice though that Birgitta had wings, so I replaced her with “Gretel”. 😳 Oh well; now I can join in with this week’s Pixie Challenge “Seeing Two”, using 2 or more images. Since I missed out on the Sketch Saturday challenge, I’ve allowed myself some more freedom with this card, i.e. I moved the sentiment and I added the lace border to the bottom of the card. The beautiful papers are from Maja Design and those in combination with the lace, gives the card a bit of Vintage feeling, so I think it qualifies for Stamp Something’s challenge “Vintage & Flowers”. I found a few more challenges I could enter this card into, among those Hanna & Friends, who are asking for your favorite color. That is green, which most of this card consists of. I hope it’s monotone enough for the “Fussy & Fancy” and Craftalicious challenges.
