You Are Lovely

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Anja de Regt our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

Being the third Saturday of the month it's time for a sketch challenge.

As I had recently received the Concord & 9th Lovely Blossoms Turnabout stamp a couple of days prior to making this card I just had to play with it to create the background of my card. I then decided to used the coordinating die set to die cut the hexagon, 'You Are Lovely' Sentiment and die cut flowers.

I added the stamped 'my friend' sentiment which is one from The Tons Beer stamp set.

For the inside of my card I added a panel of cardstock that was stamped with the same background I used on the front of the card, which was added to both the top and bottom edges.

I used Karen Burniston's Upsy Daisy Pop-up die set for the pop-up portion of the card. I added the "Happy Birthday" sentiment to the centre.

Here is a side on view of my card so you can see the pop-up portion of the card.

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.

This is a lovely card! What, pray tell, is a sketch challenge? How do you get involved with challenges?

Hi Karen, A sketch challenge is where we are all given a layout of a card ... as per the one in my blog post today and then we use that to create our card. There are a number of different sketch challenges out there. The C4C Challenges which I look after and also has Karen Aicken as a member hosts a sketch challenge on the third Saturday of the month. The other Saturday's we hold various other fun challenges. You can find the link to the C4C Challenge blog on this blog post. I also look after another challenge group which is called CCEE Stampers ... link on side bar, if you are interested. Challenges give me an excuse to use stamps/dies I might otherwise ignore for the present :) We would love you to try our C4C sketch challenge this week

This is WONDERFUL!!! I had to purchase this Turn-about stamp right away (stamp only) and was waiting for you to use it. I knew you would have it as I know you are a fan of them. I love it - and can see it will get a lot more use than the dotty and floral ones I purchased initially. So fun to see your colour choices. Such a great card!
