A Cup Of Good Wishes!


Happy Saturday everyone!!!!!!

Saturday’s mean it is challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess is Mercy Kerin, who has given us another fun challenge. Mercy challenge us to use paper flowers we have created on our cards.

For my card this week I used a stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps which is called “Gabrielle” and I also used the new designer paper out this month from Kaisercraft …. I always look forward to a new month so I can see what designer paper they have in stall for us each month. This little girl kind of reminds me of Alice In Wonderland (I know she isn’t really) and the keys and locks on the designer paper underneath her also reminded me of that story … I seem to remember a key and lock in there somewhere!

The layout used on my card is a SFYTT sketch from 5th June.

To create my flower I used my scallop circle punch and punched out 5 blue shapes, scrunched up all the scalloped circles and then added brown ink over the textured areas created when I scrunched up each circle. I then layered them all together and added a corduroy brad in the centre which I colored black.


Here is the inside of my card, the panel my sentiment is on … comes in the 6 x 6 designer paper book. The sentiments used on my card are both from Kraftin’ Kimmies Tea Sentiments.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
