Products Used: Making memories shaped gem brads, We R Memory Keepers White Out Collection in "Frenzy", Pilot G-2 gel pen in black, Nicole Card Stock in Teal, and the digital stamp is "Flopsy with ice cream cone" by Crafty Sentiments.
This card was done for the Crafty Sentiments Challenge which was a sketch! Ugh... I'm never that good at sketches, but I like the way this card turned out. I added the cute little newspaper page about the Nutcracker being danced to hip hop music because of the bunny of the page. It may seem cheesy... but I got a little giggle out of it. This was done to enter the Magnolia Down Under Challenge of using newspaper in your creation! Never done that before! :)
The "Flopsy" stamp I used also came from Crafty Sentiments, and better yet it's a Freebie!! Check it out here.
This card is also entered into the Simon Says Challenge which is a photo inspiration this week. They posted a GORGEOUS picture of a blue drink that just inspired all this bright blue in my card!! I even colored the ice cream cone Flopsy is holding the brightest blue I could. The small paper used to hold my journaling even has bright blue stripes!! Love Love LOVE this color so much - it just fits the "summer time" feel.
Lastly, but certainly not least... I entered this card into the Charisma Cardz Challenge! This is my first challenge with them and I am super excited to continue following this new blog :)
The challenge was to add some type of medal to your creation... and what better way then to use some of these new brads I got!? They are ultra sparkly - Which I absolutely LOVE! I tried to give a close up of the sun shaped brad.. picture is a little blurry though!
Well that is all for now!! Off to send this little guy to a friend who is in much need of a small pick me up.
Tata for now!
