I really have been enjoying all the challenges I'm finding while "blurfing" : ) what a hip Grandma I am *wink* This card is for two challenges I hope you will take some time to check out these two great blogs. I am sure you will find them both challenging and inspirational!
This card design is my take on this weeks CPS challenge sketch. The elements of the design were inspired by the "Use it" challenge. Our challenge hostess at the "Use It Challenge", Rae, offers up weekly fun and the challenge of using up that old "stash". Each week Rae draws a winner who in turn shouts out a "Use It" challenge for the next week. My friend, Judy was the winner of last weeks drawing so she has asked that for this weeks challenge card we use:
Scraps of any kind -
paper, odd embellishments, ribbon - any odds and ends you have.
Punches and/or die cuts -
Two or more different ribbons -
One or more embellishments that you once loved and use a lot, but haven't used for a long time -
I have paper scraps (boy! do I have paper scraps!) so I went to my bulging filing cabinet and selected two scraps. I used one of my favorite Sizzlits die cuts "Adirondack Chair". I used two ribbons one is the peach polka dot and the other is the plain white ribbon I threaded through my Love em' but have not used em' in a long time embellishment - the two epoxy buttons by Making Memories. To incorporate the design element from CPS I added a round circle - embossed with "Traffic Jam" by Cuttlebug and added a paint chip. The sentiment is from The Angel Company - stamped with that handy dandy product StazOn ink!
I'm getting fairly good at incorporating my old "stuff" when making cards for the "Use It" challenge but one thing I have not mastered is making my cards look "modern". But I'm a work in progress! and I'm having fun : ) that counts right???
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!
