Cindy assigned an ad inspiration for the Whimsical Scraps and Bugs DT to work on. It was definitely a challenge as it took me a little while to decide what I wanted to do, and I ended up making a card that strayed a little bit from what I normally would do.
I am not a totally lovin' pink kind of a gal. I like it but don't use it a lot, which is saying a lot for me as I used to despise the color pink up until several years ago. However, as of late, I have been incorporating it more into my projects and really trying to stretch myself to explore its different shades. I also did a party invitation style card for this challenge, which is out of my normal zone too. It just kinda came together that way as I was wanting to use the canvas stickers that Cindy had sent me during a Cricut swap sometime ago. It just evolved from there and I may have an idea up my little sleeve now too!
For the card I used patterned paper by Daisy D's, Autumn Leaves and The Paper Studio. The stamps are Studio G, the ink is SU, and I also used my Stickles for the cherries. The canvas stickers are Scrapbook Inspirables by EK Success. I just love these and the dimension they add to a project! I used some StampCraft ink for distressing, the ribbon is from Michael's and I the button is from my stash and I just sewed it on.
