Blogger's Challenge Week #2


I just joined a Blogger's Challenge group this week. The challenge is to do a weekly "task" and post it to your Blog on Friday. Our challenge this week was to use the sketch from the card on Page 108 of the new SU catalog. This is my interpretation! I combined the challenge with my need for a birthday card for my niece who turns 1 today! Along the side I have listed the other bloggers who are participating in the challenge.

I combined an old set with a new set...Figures of Speech has been around for a couple years...I was truly surprised that it didn't retire this year. But, all of a sudden I find myself using this set, so I was glad it is still arond. I combined it with the cool background swirl stamp in Baroque Motifs...LOVE that stamp! I think it is my favorite single stamp in the entire catalog. I liked the contrast of the circle stamp with the square 1-3/8" punch...combining with the swirls of the background stamp for a mix of shapes in one card. The cupcakes have Dazzling Diamonds on the frosting and flame...a little hard to see in this scan. Simple staples adhere the ribbon to the card. Pretty quick to put together...cause the sketch was already done for me!

Sets: Baroque Motifs, Figures of Speech
Inks: Barely Banana, Basic Black. Pretty in Pink and Lavender Lace and Barely Banana markers
C/S: Lavender Lace, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Other: Liquid glue, Dazzling diamonds, 1-3/8 square punch, white grosgrain ribbon, staples

welcome to the group, Connie! Your card is fantastic--I don't use Figures of Speech enough--but this is a great inspiration.

Great Card Connie, I really like the colors you used and the Swirl from Baroque Motifs was perfect. The sparkle on the cupcakes is a nice touch too. Ida
