Living in Florida it's often hard to believe that winter is here with Christmas right around the corner. We've been blessed with 80+ degree days lately, so it definitely does not feel like Christmas.
Thank goodness Crafty Creations Challenges is having an
Anything EXCEPT Christmas
challenge this week. We're sponsored by Oak Pond Creations and I received a beautiful digi stamp called Sunflowers to use for this week's challenge. It is definitely not a Christmas image (unless you consider sunflowers to be Florida's "Christmas Tree").
I printed the sunflowers on white cardstock then die cut it with a Spellbinders Oval die. The Oval matte is DP from Pebbles: Lakeside Collection. The grey DP is from DCWV: the dots, stripes & plaids stack. The yellow cardstock, plaid DP and ribbon are from my stash.
I printed an extra image and cut out one flower and 2 leaves so I could puff them up using dimensionals. I colored the image with Copics
I finished the inside using Die-namics Layered Treat Tag Die, but left off the sentiment. I'm not sure whether this will be a Thinking of You, Get Well or Happy Birthday card. It's nice to have options.
I'd like to enter the above card in the following challenges:
~ Clear It Out Challenges ~ Theme: ATG; Stash: ATG (the Plaid DP and small piece of ribbon have been in my craft scrap bin for eons; glad to finally use them both up)
~ Papertake Weekly Challenges ~ Theme: ATG with optional extra: CAS
~ Ribbon Carousel ~ #88 ATG but must used spooled item (yellow ribbon)
~ Songbird Challenges ~ Theme: Die Another Day, use 1 or more dies (Spellbinders Oval and Die-namics Layered Treat Tag)
~ One Stitch at a Time ~ Use a Digi
~ Melonheadz Friends ~ Fall Colors (yellows and greens are pretty much FL's Fall colors)
