Summer Fun!

C4C51-Summer-Fun-wm

Hi all!

My card today combines two challenges. First up being Saturday it is time to play with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

This week the challenge was to include Lattice in some form on our cards/projects. Here are a few ideas to get you started …. lattice using your cricut machine, dies, embossed lattice using scorpal etc, designer paper that has a lattice pattern, lattice background stamps or image stamps that include lattice on them … I am sure I missed a few options but you get the idea!

For my card I decided to pull out my cricut Wild Card cartridge which I discovered thanks to my friend Cindy that it has a lattice design on it. I measured the size of the panel I had on the side and cut my lattice piece to suit that and then added some pearls to the crossover pieces.

The second challenge this week is the challenge on the Oh Alice challenge blog. This week Paper Pretties is the sponsor for the challenge and the challenge was a little girl theme. I decided to use one of Paper Pretties newest release sets … Swing By Sometime Sophia. I stamped Sophia on my white card and then masked her and added in the cloud pieces and then used my copic airbrush to create the sky.
