Challenges, challenges, challenges....
Hello! I'm still plugging away at Unity's World Card Making Day Challenges...
I've included two today. One challenge was to make a pop-up card so when my ds needed a card for a friend turning 16 who was celebrating with a paintball party, I found just the right sentiments to add to my quick card in the Dec '09 KOTM, the Melody Ross kit called Brave Girl and the Ippity set called Authentic Man. I used a Sizzix pop-up template for the inside greeting along with a Tim Holtz grungeboard star (that I thought after coloring it red, looked like a good paintball splat! Lol).
The second one was a sketch challenge. My cards are sometimes way out there, fantasy-wise but the whole card usually works together. This time part of the sketch was to include ribbon which didn't exactly go with the scene but the dashes and circles on the ribbons seem to play nicely with the rest of the features. I use an adorable Itty Bitty stamp set is called "Nicest Place To Be" that I got as a bonus when I ordered some sets recently. Those "bots" do make a cute couple.
I always provide a full list of supplies of my cards in my SCS Gallery.
Check back periodically because I do hope to keep posting these challenges for the rest of the week.
