We’ve been pretty quiet on the blog front this week but its not for lack of new cards to show you. In fact, Heather’s been quite busy churning out new creations, mostly for the CPS Anniversary Sketch Challenges. She’ll be sharing these in the next several posts.
Before I get to the show and tell, I wanted to share that my cards were winners in this week’s ”Use Pink” challenge at Little Scrap Pieces: http://littlescrappieces.blogspot.com/2012/02/winner-and-new-challenge-anything-your.html and also, I won the ”Show some Valentine/Anniversary Love” challenge at The Crafty Pad!!! http://thecraftypad.blogspot.com/2012/02/challenge-156-lets-see-some-fresh.html Wow! What a thrill and an honor! In addition, Heather’s card was chosen as one of the top 3 in the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge #52! She was also lucky enough to win $10 in digis from Daisy’s Doodles for suggesting the name of Daisy’s new Wednesday event, ”Daisy’s Image Inspirations”. It’s a really neat event they’ll have each Wednesday. Their DT will use an image from the digi store on their cards to inspire you and then you can snag that image for free or at a reduced price. Cool! You can check it out here: http://daisydoodlescreativechallenges.blogspot.com/ Thanks for indulging me while I bragged a little but it was a fantastic week!
Ok, on to the new card!
I used the CPS sketch #242:
I challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone with a new palette. It was a bit of a stretch for me but I’m pleased with the result. The patterned papers are Cherrywood Lane from Heidi Grace. The sentiment is a digi printed on a transparency sheet. Heather made the flower for me by shaping and embossing punched flower shapes.
