More Challenges

Needless to say, I've been having some fun doing challenges this week. Today's card is no exception and is for some more of my favorites, Delightful Inspiration where I got to use the cute image I earned by playing last week's challenge and Crazy 4 Challenges C4C58 - Birthday Challenge.


The card base is Poppy Parade - rapidly becoming my go-to red this season. I love it! I used my nesties to create the layered medallion using white and Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade. I also used some Daffodil Delight ribbon. I created the background by making a watermark from the digi image and printing it on my cardstock. I also got a chance to use one of my new toys (gotta love those 50% off coupons) to punch out the holes for the ribbon. It is a spring loaded hole punch and I got some ribbon shaped punches in various sizes to use with it. Fun being able to punch holes exactly where you want them and not have to use a hammer to do it!

Well hopefully today will be full of creativity as I have tons of fun things to prepare for my upcoming downline meeting, Holiday Mini workshop and Holiday Stamp Camp. This is the kind of busy that I really, really like! I'll throw in a little laundry and cleaning too I suppose. DH is taking advantage of today's wonderful weather to work on his garage/driveway project so we should both have a productive weekend!

Thanks for visiting!

The medallion is great.
I love the random background stamping, so creative to make a digital image into a watermark for your background.
