I did the multiple layers as suggested by the sketch, with the scalloped edges for one of the matted features. I love to do black and white cards with one accent color. I used a printed paper for the scalloped edge and then used the same printed paper for the top panel. I stamped the floral image on the rectangle feature of the card and then embossed it with black embossing powder. I then stamped two more heads of the flower image, embossed them and cut them out. I distressed the white paper with some black ink, stamped the butterfly and embossed it in red, and added the bling. I used foam squares to attach the stamped rectangle so that it pops off the card. So, there you have it ~ my first attempt at a challenge! It was a lot of fun to do, and I look forward to the next challenge for next week. By the way, this sketch was done by Kazan, and next week the sketch will be done by Laura.
Thanks for checking in! As always, I'll be dropping in on your blogs as well. Good luck to all who entered this week! Oh, and don't forget to scroll down to see my "Picture of the Week". It is really a special one this week. I took the boys to a local park this week, and on the path in front of us stood this beautiful baby Robin. It never moved as we approached, and I walked right up to it! It just stood there looking at us as if it was saying "Please don't let those big hairy things eat me!" As you can see in the picture, Shotsy laid down by it and his front paw was two inches from it. Shotsy acted really concerned about it as if he wanted to try to protect it (he is sensitive that way). I had to hold Gunther back because he was drooling thinking to himself "Mmmmm chicken!" (he is such the dog!). Finally, the mother came back and was doing her worried chirping, and in an instant, the little thing shot up in the air and into the tree with his Mom! I was so shocked! I didn't think it could fly and poof, it was out of there like a rocket! What a cool experience it was, and I am so glad I got the picture! Hope you enjoy it!
