Once again, this posting features cards for spring, summer and winter.
This card, alight with cheerful color, just shouts spring! It was put together quickly with a photo from a calendar page, light blue patterned vellum, and a simple sentiment from Beccys Place digi set named “Iris Garden.”
Beccy’s Place Challenge- July
This week’s Monday challenge at Simon Says is… well… a challenge for me! It requires that a card be distressed. Since I prefer crafting cards that are more of a cute, chic, scenic, floral, elegant or anything besides distressing, these cards are difficult for me to make. I often overwork them when inking, coloring, smudging, spraying, etc. So, I’m using a more gentle method of distressing for my card. I’m adding torn and crumpled paper. Hope that qualifies? (PS The sentiment is actually a prescription for dealing with stress. So, in that way this really is a de-stress card, right? Ha! Sorry… bad joke! But the inside sentiment might bring a smile. It reads, “It’s your birthday, so click those flip-floppy heels together and enjoy!”)
