Welcome to my world! Originally this blog was designed for me to share my crafty life. But my life is full of more than just crafts! This blog is now dedicated to my love of crafts and my life. Enjoy the ride with me!
The challenge is to use one (or all) of the sketches as inspiration for you card, layout, whatever you'd like.
Since this is my first challenge, I must admit I am a bit nervous! I hope this is something the other crafty individuals who participate in these things will like/enjoy. I used a combination of the two sketches below:
I used the folded corners plus the mat on the first sketch and the charm on the second sketch.
This is my result:
The charm is a coffee mug cut from Gypsy Wanderings, and I used a small gage wire to attach it to. I fastened buttons onto the end of the wire, and then sewed the utton onto the paper with some off-white thread. The folded corners are pop-dotted to add a bit more dimension, as well as the coffee mug.
The sentiment is hand-written. There's a lot of inking! The inside just has some off-white paper, inked and one of the flowers from the patterned paper on the front is cut out and adhered to the corner.
I like how this turned out, I don't know if this is completely following the challenge 100% since I didn't stick to any of the original designs 100%, but the designs did inspire ths creation!
