Blogger Challenge, Week #34


This week our challenge was to use the card on p. 42 of the Spring/Summer Catalog (the "happy birthday" card). While this layout was fairly easy, I was short on time due to 2 sick kids at home most of the week so I didn't get to play as much as I wanted to. If time permits tomorrow, maybe I'll make another one.


I used my new Flyin' High set from CTMH along with the SCS Color Challenge for the week using Green Galore, Kraft and Temping Turquoise. I added a little ribbon and some brads to the card as well as some crystal effects to the car to make it shiny. I think my hubby wanted to puke when I just showed it to him, but hey, that's life. We don't always LOVE the outcome of the cards we make, but some little kid will appreciate it I'm sure.


Make sure to check out the Blogger Challenge logo that will link you to all the other fabulous players. Check them out to see how many different cards can be made based on one layout.


Have a great weekend!
