It's Saturday again and that means a new challenge starts today at Allsorts and it's Mervi's week to host. Her optional theme for the week is "Embellish It", super easy I think and then of course there is the "Anything Goes" option so hope you will join in with us for your chance to win or to be in Mervi's Top 5!
I've been dealing with flu-like symptom this past week so I was looking for an easy sketch to use for this week's card and found this one at Atlantic Heart Sketch Challege.
An embossing folder makes a quick and easy background. This folder is by Spellbinders - Flowers and Leaves. While I was looking for a stamp to use, I came across a sheet of Penny Black stickeroos and I thought this frog would fit perfectly. (Sorry I can't add a link, they are no longer available). Stickeroos are very thin so I stuck it onto Neenah cardstock then fussy cut.
The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Sweet Wishes. I used various paper scraps to cut out the banners and butterflies. I wanted to follow Mervi's optional theme so I embellished with jute twine and added tiny rhinestones to the butterflies. Some stickles glitter on the flower center too but it's not showing up in the pictures.
Prizes are from WOWVOW, Oakwood Direct and Craft Stash, these will be for challenges 726, 727 and 728. Then for challenge 729 (next week) we're having a special Birthday celebration with lots prizes to be won. That will be on May 20th!!!
