Ohhh yes, Anice & her fabulous DT over at Funky Hand have been keeping very busy of late in order to get the new challenge blog up & running yesterday.
They have kick started the challenge with a lovely sketch from Anice & the DT have all done wonders with their own adaptations of it.
Now Anice has even decided to give away a FREE download so that there is no reason for anyone not to join in the fun. What more can you ask for... oh yes... a prize... well she is giving a super prize away too so you better get your skates on & get over there right now.
Anyway, this is my take on this months sketch & I have created it using the free downloadable papers that Anice is so kindly giving away.
Layered paper onto my base card, then cut out a circle which was again layered on top. Next up took a strip of the 3rd paper & layed that across my card, onto which I attached the pink ribbon then a thinner brown ribbon (download again). Took the stripey paper & cut out a flower using a Craftwork Cards template & for the centre used some of the brown daisy paper. Inked the edges of the flower for some added definition. Next I took one of the sentiments (download) and attached this to a piece of card which I then mounted using 3d foam. Gems, gems, gems, finish the whole card off along with a little inking around the card edges.
Quick, fun, cheerful card.
Now what are you waiting for... come on... pop over to Get Funky now & join in the fun...
Back later with another creation that I've made for The Sugar Bowl Challenge.
Happy crafting
