A few months ago, I started a group on Facebook to bring crafty sistahs together. I am so pleased with the response & love I have felt from the members of this group. So far, we have hosted a Blog Hop (click here for that post) and have began to support each other in all things crafty & some not.
Last week, I started weekly challenges within the group. The challenge is posted on Monday and the group members have until noon on Saturday to post their projects.
Challenge #1 was to create a card, layout, etc. with black & white as the primary colors and one accent color.
When I am able to choose a color, I always go with my favorite - ORANGE!
Here is my take on the challenge:
The orange ribbon - which has been in my stash for what seems like forever - was really what got me going on this creation. I used DCWV patterned paper, black cardstock from Recollections & a white Recollections card for the base. The card base measures 6.5" by 5". I cut my black cardstock at 6" by 4.5" and used my Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page to decorate one edge. I cut my patterned paper at 5.75" by 3.75" and used my ColorBox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye in Tangerine to add a little something to the edges. I tied a bow & used my ATG to secure the ribbon on the back of my card front. Lastly, I pulled out my Gypsy and tapped into my Forever Young cartridge. The "d-lish!" phrase jumped out at me & I cut it & its shadow at abot 1.75". Don't you just love it?!?!?
Monique at Mix-on the Memories also participated in the challenge & this is what she whipped up:
Christel over at Scrappin Sista put her own spin on it & came up with this:
Thanks so much ladies for lending your talent & craft genius to this challenge... can't wait to see what you come up with this week!
Challenge #2 - Use 3 Bs on a card. You choose three Bs - they could be buttons, birds, butterflies, brads, blue, bling, or whatever "B" thing you come up with!
