Time for me to share a handmade card creation from a design challenge! I love these challenges because it gives me a great way to create and have fun doing it. I also love to see what others come up with too!
This challenge came from the Global Design Project and this week was a Theme Challenge….Sun, Moon and Stars! Since I’ve been looking forward to the end of summer, I’ve been dreaming about my end of summer vacay. So, my creation is inspired by good dreams.
Drum roll for the result please….
I used a mixture of Stampin’ Up tools for this one! The embossing and stitched background frame is cut from the Stitched Labels dies. The sentiment is from the Little Twinkle. I used the Starburst, Pretty Label and Twinkle Builder punches for lots of layering effects. To tie it all together and add some bling, I added a strip of Metallic Edge Ribbon and Rhinestones.
Oh how I love the soft colour combination too! Thank goodness for Stampin’ Up’s colour coach of Purple Posy, Smokey Slate and Pool Party. What a “dreamy combo”!
UPDATE: I’m super excited to announce that this card was chosen as one of the Challenge winners. I’m so humbled to be chosen by such a talented group of artists. Thank you so much GDPC! Please check out the winning announcement here.
