Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  I continue to challenge the Design Team this week.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for a sketch challenge … here’s the sketch if you want to play along.



For my card this week I decided to use the sketch and create a Stand Up Card using the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Stand Up Helper 2 Die set (930), the dies are basically a Christmas theme, but there are a couple in the set that could be used all year round, including the circles I used on my card today.

I also used the new Rubber Duck Die (920), I just adore this little cutie!!!!!!!!!!!! And for the sentiment I used the Hello Stand Up Helper (938) which can be used as a Stand Up Helper or like I have today just as a sentiment … the choice is yours Smile

For the circle layers I used circle dies from Karen Burniston’s Circle Spiral Pull Card and Circle Accordion Card Die Sets.


Here is my card closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

    Frances, this is just adorable. I love the colours you chose, the way you added the HELLO for the banner in the sketch AND that it's a STAND-UP card. So cute!
