I haven't had as much time to create as I have wanted too - but this morning, I took some time to complete a card for a few challenges. The first challenge was for the 365 Card Blog. Yesterday's challenge was to use specific shapes on your card in a BIG way - A Circle and a Diamond. Well, I had to think about this one for a bit. I knew I hadn't packed away my clear stamps and this diamond pattern is from a clear set. So, I thought on it some more and finally came up with this design. The next challenge that I am doing this card for is the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #6 Which is to use layers and flowers. I started out by layering the red pattern DP on my card base. Then I cut my large nesties scallop circle and taped that down. I then cut a smaller nesties scallop and then ran it through with one of my CB folders. I popped this off the first circle. I stamped the scroll diamond and fussy cut it and popped it off the circle and finally I stamped the smaller diamond and cut this out and popped it off the previous diamond. I really liked the way it looked and was going to leave it like that, but then decided to add the flower arrangement. Part of the challenge is always to use an image that 7 Kids carries - so I added this ADORABLE Magnolia Angel. I got her in my Fall kit that I got recently and she was just the finishing touch to this card (I think anyway).I colored her with my prisma color pencils - but used Gold Lame on her wand and wings.
I am also entering this card in the ABC Challenge The challenge this week is the letter F - for FLOWERS! There is a fabuloous prize to be had on that blog.
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed my card. It was fun to do and actually went together quite easily.
