I entered a challenge!

This is a new one for me… since it was kind of a rainy day here today, I figured I’d get my next sample up here.. and check out some new ideas from other demonstrators. Well, I ran across a card I thought was really cute, and noticed it was created for an online challenge…of course I had to check it out. I’ve seen them before, but never really figured out how they worked.  Today was the day I did just that!  I found the challenge, created the card, and entered!!

This challenge is hosted by Freshly Made Sketches, and this was the design given for us to use:

FMS Final 151-001

Here is my take on that design:

IMG_6825_editI was pretty excited to use the same Festival of Trees set as my last post <click here if you missed it>, which primarily looks like a Christmas set – but as you can see in this card, it can be more than that!!
I also used a new set, Good Greetings, which is a new FREE Hostess gift for qualifying shows. To see more on that, check out my Promotions page here!

I used markers to color the tree, and the leaves are from the Bird Builder punch. The other cool item here is the paper! I used the new fall themed Designer Series Paper called Color Me Autumn. It gives you the ‘washed’ look but without any fussing! Snip and glue and done.  I hope everyone likes the card!

  1. Congratulations on your first challenge!!! They really are a great way to get new ideas and to push yourself. I LOVE your card. I love the beautiful, brushed paper and the stamp is gorgeous. The fall leaves as one of the layers is a fun and creative idea. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
