As our beloved Canucks battle in the background, I figured it would be a good time for me to tackle 2 challenges in one go.
The first one is #50 Challenge from Papercraft Star, this is my first go at a Papercraft Star challenge. The Challenge This Week:
Use the letters "S", "T", "A", "R" as inspiration for your project (i.e. "S" for sentiment, "R" for ribbon, etc.,)
I figured I had most of those down with the exception of A, my boys were determined for me to put an Armadillo on the card?? ? right.. because they are so abundant in British Columbia. They did make a good argument however instead, I tried to make my band of ribbon look like a road of Asphalt.... am I stretching it :) well if that fails I can always say I used Adhesive, although I would be surprised if someone said they put it all together with bubblegum.
So the breakdown:
“S” Stripes, stamp and sentiment
“T” Travel, turquoise
“A” Asphalt, adhesive
Did I make it??
The second challenge is Clean & Simple Sunday Challenge #15. I realized when I peeked at the site today that I must have posted my last one late. Oh well, I still plan to go back and do 1 thru 12 at some point.
This is the sketch:
This is my card, I know the buttons are extra but apparently I love my buttons. Simple enough, I layered striped DCWV Linen Closet designer paper on brown cardstock. I embossed the stamped motorcycle then edged it and layered it. I layered the ribbon base before adding the ribbon trying for a highway look with the multiple dotted lines :) in my mind anyway. I stamped and embossed the sentiment, then finished with Sizzlits buttons embossed with clear embossing powder and threaded with embroidery floss.
