I'm super excited to be back today with the new challenge for THE CHALLENGE! As you can see it is a sketch challenge, which is always fun! You can check out all of the details HERE.
You can see what the other designs have come up with as well.
My daughter was invited to a birthday party last weekend and she needed a card. I drew inspiration for the card from the gift sack that she put the gift in as well, so I was double-y inspired! LOL!I've been wanting to use this cute bicycle set from Papertrey Ink called Pedal Pusher again every since I made THIS card back in April. I had hoped to use it for a graduation design, but ended up by not needing it, so I was happy to use it!
I used a combination of pattern papers from two different paper pads both from Michaels. My sister gave them to me for Mother's Day and I love them so much!
I chose to make a special bookmark to add to the card since the recipient loves to read and my daughter gave her a Barnes and Noble gift card. It was just a fun little surprise to add to the card. I wanted to have something a little unexpected to use in place of the little flag piece included in the sketch. I used a rolled rose die cut to create the flower. I added it to a jumbo paper clip using hot glue with a bow of ribbon for an extra touch.
The stamp is from the Postmarks stamp set. It is one of those fun sets to have on hand for little details like this. I added a thick foam square to either side of the postage stamp so that there would be a nice place to slide the book mark down into without it getting stuck.
The bike frame is embossed in silver with black wheels. It looks so shiny in real life.
You can see a close up of the flower bookmark.
I hope you will get a chance to play along! Challenges are so fun and they always get me thinking in new ways! Thanks for fluttering by!
