Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Red, White & Blue



Good Morning :)  I hope everyone is having a great week so far.

So, our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is 'Red, White & Blue' and as always we have a great prize of a $20 voucher to spend in the store and also this month you have a chance to win a Big Shot Die Cutter in our draw at the end of the month.

I hand-stitched MME papers onto bazzil card separating them with the Lace Light Deco Border and then cut 2 of the largest dies from the Heart to Heart Doily, backing the doily with contrasting paper and just trimming round the edge.  The centrepiece of this is the gorgeous One Free Wish  die, cut again with white card and inked around the edges. 

The stars are just one of the dies in the  Build A Flower set and the sentiment tag was made by using the smaller of the  Two of Hearts dies, which I cut 3 times using different card and paper and just offsetting the smallest  heart which I trimmed down in size. 

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Divas By Design - To Die For
Creatilicious Challenges - Anything Goes
Emergency Crafters - Anything with wings
Saturday Challenge - Red, White & Blue
Craft Your Days Away - Bingo - Pearls, Ribbon, Glitter
Lexi's Creations - Happy Birthday
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Red, White & Blue
Make My Monday - Midsummer Nights Dream


Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.

Have a smashing day!

What a stunning card, Alison. Love the red and white, it's so effective. Thank you so much for my beautiful birthday card, which arrived the day before my birthday. This meant I was able to open it before I went off to school, so the timing was just perfect! The wee goodies are sitting on my desk now - I'm saving them as a treat to myself for the end of term in less than 2 weeks (yay!). Sending huge hugs, Tracey xx

Paula (PEP) said...

Classy & elegant with the deep burgundy & pale blue - isn't white an amazing tool to use? Perfectly demonstrated here, especially with your inking of the image. The border gives the illusion of bunting (up-market of course) & I love the offsetting of your die-cuts.
Have fun with the new addition to the household - can't wait to hear what he/she is.
