Blogger's Challenge #47


This weeks Blogger's Challenge was to use the layout on page 21 of the Occasions Mini Collection. (the card with the dog) I had a hard time with the torn paper! Remember when that was all the rage and felt so "right" --- how could something that felt so right once feel so wrong now, lol! I am happy with my card though although I changed the landscape of the card I keep the rest -- including the torn paper! The base of the card is Brocade Blue followed by Chocolate Chip that has been scored every 1/4 inch using my Scor Pal. The main image is from On Eagles Wings from Our Daily Bread Designs -- as is the sentiment. I stamped the image on Whisper White in Basic Black and then colored it in with markers. Next I masked it and brayed Brocade Blue over the top and of course finished the focal image by tearing the top. It is layered on More Mustard. And finally I added a few white brads above the sentiment. Hope you like it.

I love how you changed it up -- I agree, it felt wrong to tear a chunk off the paper! Strange layout, but it works here.
