Aah well, here we go, the first Monday of the year…! And that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Crafting From The Heart. There’s a small change to the challenges for 2014 – we’ve added in some optional themes for you to follow, if you fancy!
The theme or this fortnight’s challenge is “Buttons and Pearls” and we were delighted to be sponsored by Lacy Sunshine, Angie’s Digi Stamps and A Day For Daisies. I chose to use Valentina by Lacy Sunshine – it’s the first time I’ve coloured a Lacy Sunshine stamp, but I think I might be hooked!! She looked cute uncoloured, but I think she looks amazing now she’s had the Pro-Marker treatment!! I used the print and cut facility on the Silhouette for the image, choosing to add a little stitched border too.
The papers are from the I Heart You collection by Harper Finch. I’ve used several of these collections now and have found them so versatile – I loved the greys mixed with reds and pinks! I only managed to include one button on my card – the little heart button on the banner, but I think it works pretty well with the image and papers.
I based the layout on the current sketch over at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge:
Make sure you pop over to Crafting From The Heart with one of your New Year creations – remember, anything goes if you’d rather not use the theme, we would just love to see what you’ve been up to!! There’s also a DT Call on right now – if you’re interested, make sure you pop over.
