Answer the Call

I know.... Three posts this week already?! What is going on here?! Well, I'll tell you: Saturated Canary is holding a guest design team call on their challenge blog, and I just had to throw my hat in the ring. I know it's a long shot as there are already over 80 gorgeous entries for 3 open spots, but you don't know if you don't try so here goes nothing! I love Krista's images, and Krista herself is as delightful and charming as the characters she draws! If you've never read her blog you are truly missing out and should go visit her here.

Today I needed a card for a co-woker of mine. It's a dual purpose card as her birthday is next weekend AND she is starting a new full-time job at another company on Monday too! She is a glamorous young thing, and I thought Becki was perfect. Recently I had seen a few cards that used Spellbinders Nestablities dies to cut frames, and I decided I wanted to try this technique. I'm really happy with the results using Labels Eighteen! The image was printed "big head" style, colored with Copics and her dress was paper pieced. The sketch is the current challenge over at Cardabilities. I used a favorite border punch of mine from Martha Stewart and added my usual embellishments (flowers and an assortment of Tim Holtz goodies) as well as a beaded pin I received from a friend and some tulle. The papers are from Bo Bunny - I love them and have been hoarding them, but they just begged to be used for this creation.

Markers use: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E31, E25, E27, R20, E04, W6, W8, W10).

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenge:
- Hooked On Craft Challenges: #15 - Try Something New (frame technique)
- Make It Monday: #72 - Anything Goes
- Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: #168 - Anything Goes with Blue

Thank you for visiting and wish me luck! *fingers crossed* Being a Canary would be quite the honor! Have a fabulous day!
