Blogger's Challenge #36


Today's challenge was to use the layout from the Sympathy card on page 44 of the current SU catalog. I love these challenges because I don't notice what great samples are in the catalog if I am not prompted to. I wonder why that is. This was an awesome layout! My favorite thing about the layout was the torn corner so I was sure to keep that part the same. I hope you like it. I am always needing boy cards so this one will actually be in my stash! Got to love that! The wings on the dragonfly are mildly glittery. I used a clear glitter pen and it gave it just enough shimmer that it is still "boyish". Unfortunately not enough to show up in the picture though!


Stamps: Bugs and Kisses
Paper: Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Summer Picnic dp
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie
Other: markers and clear glitter gel pen

What a cute card. The bugs are so much fun and you've combined them with some great colors and background papers. It makes me smile. (Funny but I didn't like the torn corner and couldn't do that to my card) It looks great here though.
