A New Challenge Blog!
It never ceases to amaze me how you can find so many amazing challenge blogs just by reading other crafty people's blogs. Makes life so much easier than aimlessly searching! Through two different blogs, I located Twisted Tuesday Challenges. This site is brand spankin' new and they are having a DT challenge. Since I only found it last night, I am squeaking my entry in at the very last minute!! The DT challenge was to use pastel/spring colors with black added somewhere and the twist is the creation must be square. Well, I don't often do square cards and I was rolling ideas around in my head when the word creation popped out at me. It did not say it had to be a card... So here is my scrapbook layout meeting all of the requirements!
I used the sketch from Simply Stampin' Challenge. See the pretty daffodils? I learned how to make these from Amanda. Just use the 5 petal flower and the Boho Blossom punches! I inked the edges of the cup with pumpkin pie ink for a little contrast. The pics show off the beautiful blooms on our trees. I love the color that bursts out in spring!! It makes it so easy to find inspiration! Well, it was a little last minute, but I'm pretty happy with it and I have another page completed! YAY!! Wish me luck!
