#512 – Thanks


First, some good news – I don’t usually put reports of my wins in challenges, but this one is a bit special. Virginia’s View Challenge is one of my favorite challenges – she just re-started the challenge after a break, and wow! There were so many submissions and so much of inspiration!! She announced the winners just yesterday, and I have my cards, not just in the Top 10, but also as an Honorable Mention – double the reasons to celebrate!!

So here’s my thanks to Virginia, the super lady – she’s an inspiration!!


A very simple card to make – and I think if the pink is replaced by blue, it can even make a standard (at least color wise) masculine card! πŸ˜‰


Supplies used:
Altenew Painted Poppies
Memento Tuxedo Black, PTI Sweet Blush, PTI Melon Berry, PTI Berry Sorbet, Memento Pear Tart and Crushed Olive distress ink
American Crafts Shimelle Woodgrain embossing folder
PTI Wet Paint

I made that silver paper myself by applying some silver acrylic paint on cardstock. Looks so beautiful, I love it!!

Submitting this card to the following challenges –

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #15 (I chose Word Dies+Sparkle+Color Blocking) –

Happy Little Stampers: August Mixed Media Challenge: Metal

Altenew April Challenge


The Heart Desires Challenge #3 (I’ve used plant, metallic and woodgrain…and pink! ;))

Woodcraft Store: Clean and Simple: Embossing (The background has dry embossed woodgrain) –

Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚
