Challenge #11 - Spring Card
Okay, for the Whimsical Scraps & Bugs challenge we had to do several things. We asked our DT members to create either a layout, card or altered item using only black & white. They were allowed to use one other color, sparingly, and had to include the word SPRING, cut with their Cricut. They also had to include some bling! I decided to do a card for the challenge and while I wasn't sure about it after I first completed it, the card is growing on me and I actually like it quite a bit!
I used the Opposites Atrract cartridge to cut the word, SPRING. The paper is a combination of Bazzill, The Paper Studio and generic white cardstock. Not sure who the bling is by, but the ribbon is from Michael's. I colored in three of the flowers on the patterned paper with a gel pen and also used my Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white for the dots on the letters. Oh, and I also heavily pop dotted the letters!
I hope you make it a point to go see all the wonderful creations our DT came up with for this challenge. They always do a great job. Hope you also decide to play along with us too! We would love to see everyone's take on the challenge!
