Challenge Entry

Happy Hellos Everyone:

That's right! I'm participating in another challenge over at CR8. I'm so glad to participate in the challenge over there. You wouldn't believe what or how many things happen while life's taking place. So many, that there are times when I want to participate in the challenges, but again, life is taking place at those times, which prevents me from participating in some of my favorite challenges.

When you see this week's challenge colors, instantly, you may think spring. Fair enough....My initial though was AKA...Alpha Kappa Alpha. Nevertheless, I was extremely happy with the color selection.



Don't you just love it? In keeping with the birthday them and trying to increase my birthday greeting card stash, I was able to draw this from this week's inspirational photo:



This was a fun card to create because I got a chance to use some of my new pennant stamps from Hero Arts and PTI. I covered the chip board numbers in glue and sprinkled MS glitter over them before I applied a coat of Glossy Accents over top. I love that technique. I used BasicGrey DP and SU cardstock. I'm not so sure you can see, but I threw in some baker's twine to. I love that ribbon. I can remember my grandfather bring home patreies bound with the red & white twine. It's funny how what's old is new again. Okay, I digressed for a moment. I'm back. I adorned the card with a couple of buttons and a couple of brad from my stash and finished it off with some silk ribbon.

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery.
