http://artfulinkables.blogspot.com has a recipe challenge, 3 buttons, 2 pieces of ribbon, and a circle!
http://colourq.blogspot.com has a colour challenge of kiwi kiss, groovy guava, kraft, basic black and vanilla.
So what did I do with those two challenges? I combined them!! I first took my magnolia image, and picked out copic markers really close to kiwi kiss, and groovy guava.. I then set off colouring! I love to colour it really is so relaxing!! Then I used the negative image from a marquee I had cut out of Kraft cardstock, using Mothers Day 2010 Cricut Cartridge. I layered Vanilla paper behind the marquee, then green lace ribbon on the outer edges. I then stamped smile on kraft, in black and cut it out with the martha stewart scalloped circle. It was missing something, so I added a circle of bling! Then I used a black, guava and vanilla ribbon, and 3 green buttons. I think it meets all the goals of the 2 challenges!! Oh and I used my spica pens in the balloons for a bit of sparkle, and her boots are kraft with glitter! FUN!
I hope you enjoy this CCubed creation, it was so fun for me! And the colours were out of my norm, so definately a challenge!!
