Our Challenge this week over at Happileigh Scrappin' is Stars and/or Stripes. As you can see I went for the stripes option. My card looks like the cuckoo in the nest next to the rest of the DT who have used red, white and blue for the most part lol. Still, not everyone celebrates American Holidays and the challenge caters for us too.
This is a photo of the card, but the colours are true above.Happileigh Scrappin' Shop. I've used it before as a New Home card...I made a shaped card that time, you can see the post here. I paper-pieced it that time too....it is so much fun to paper-piece. My tiny buttons are yellow and lemon...the lemon are looking a little green poor things lol.
I did a little shading with a mustard, and pear green promarker
...not showing up too well in the pix.
The sentiment was written by Dorcas, I needed it to fit across my page so didn't use the actual one she did...just pinched the wording. You can find Dorcas' original sentiment and her other great and fun freebie sentiments on her blog link in her side-bar.
My seam binding, and cute striped buttons are Ribbongirl.
The Flower is cut with the centre tiny of the nestie Fleur di lis
and then glittered up on the edge with snow-writer.
What do you think of my great new watermark. Leigh made one for all the team to use on our DT projects.
You don't need to use a Happileigh Image to join us, but if you do - and why indeed not when there are freebies available - you will be given 2 entries into the draw. Also, not to be forgotten, for every 3 images you buy at the store, you will get one free.
The rest of the Team have some wonderful projects to share with you, pop over to the challenge and take a look.
