Bling it On; Sweet Stampin' Challenge; allsorts; The Stamping Boutique; Totally Gorjuss; Do You Stack Up; PaperPlay Weekly

Hi all!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Bling it On had a birthday challenge but we also had to use shades of lilac.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge wanted us to use lots of layers. They also gave us an optional sketch to play with. I followed the sketch pretty closely and I think there's 9 layers not counting the card base.

allsorts challenge #145 was to use flowers. I added 5 prima flowers to my card.

The Stamping Boutique challenge #28 is to use pearls and swirls. I used My Favorite Things fancy flourish die and also used half-back adhesive pearls.

Totally Gorjuss challenge #122 is an anything goes with a button. I used three buttons on my card as flower centers.

Do You Stack Up challenge #62 is "go green". We could interpret that how we chose, including recycling or just using the color green. One of the panels I used on my card is a piece of a printed paper bag I got in the UK when I bought a few pieces of jewelry from a booth at a mall in Cambridge. Please scroll down for the pic of the remnants of the bag.

PaperPlay also had a recycle it challenge. One of the panels I used on my card is a piece of a printed paper bag I got in the UK when I bought a few pieces of jewelry from a booth at a mall in Cambridge. Please scroll down for the pic of the remnants of the bag.


Now for pics:



A pic of what's left of the recycled printed paper bag. I used the piece of bag on the layer to the left and beneath the front lilac card stock layer. Sponged the white doily with a Colorbox ink and then used the distress ink on the edges. Some of the flowers are also sponged with the lilac ink.
