Today's challenge for day 144 at 365 Cards is "You Raise Me UP". We were to try to incorporate two ways to 'raise' our work up off the page.
I popped up the blue bordered background.
I popped up the fence.
I popped up the little boquet of flowers sticking out of the fence (it was supposed to appear that Susan had been picking the flowers...).
I popped up Susan, AND the sunshine, AND the sentiment (TAC)!
I think that qualifies for raising it up!
I am also using this card for the challenge at Our Creative Corner. The OCC challenge is a "Triple Play". We were to use three items to embellish our card (brads, eyelets, bling, ribboy, buttons, thread, floss, beads, charms, rub-ons, liquid applique, or crystal laquer).
I used ribbon (top right corner), brads (on border), bling (on her jeans buttons), and crystal laquer (on her necklace and pony tail holder).
The next card is for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, which was to make a shaped card. I did the ladybug from scratch. The sentiment is TAC.
Well, I probably should cut this short tonight and not stay around to chit-chat. I have a swap to work on!
Have a great night, and remember to cherish each precious day always!
~Why is it that people pay money to go up into tall buildings, then pay money to use the binoculars on the top of that building, only to look at things on the ground??? lol
p.s. does anyone else out there have trouble getting their blogs to space right? grrr....
