The Cutting Edge Challenge #5

Hello!

Have you heard of The Cutting Edge Challenge? It's fairly new and such a fun challenge! We all love to use die-cutting in our card making so I think I'm gonna be playing a lot with this one.

It's their 5th challenge this week and they've given us a beautiful project by Melania Deasy to inspire.


Isn't that gorgeous?! I love her design using the bottom, right corner and those colors are so pretty!

Here's my take, turning the design to create a top-folding card.



I used all Simon Says Stamp products. The flowers are from the Floral Bookmarking clear set and they have matching dies. I also used their Triangle Border Die, and the sentiment is from the Hi, Lovey set. 

I'm not sure the sentiment works with the "you" die-cut. It actually comes with a period in between the words Hi and Lovely, which I didn't really understand. So, I dipped my craft pick in the same ink and changed it to a comma. Hopefully you're reading it the way I meant it to be understood. It would be as if someone said, "Hi, you." Or, "Hello there, lovely you." Anyway, I like the way it turned out - it was a fun card to create! 

I sure am enjoying playing in more challenges and I'm hoping I can continue finding enough time to craft more often.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to work - have a great day! ♥

LOVE this, Barb! Beautiful choice of colors! I'm pinning it, as I have this new set, too, but haven't played yet with it......

You sound like me on the card I made last week where the so much was on top of the thank you and I didn't like it...we're our own toughest critics. I read it as...you are lovely :) Truly think this design is absolutely fabulous. Love the variety of die cuts Barb.

So pretty, Barb! I love the way you interpreted the challenge card and made it your own. The sentiment makes sense to me. :)

Barb, this is AWESOME!! And I love that you corrected the grammar on that sentiment. Bad grammar in sentiments drives me nuts! LOL Love your take on the challenge - Brilliant! Thanks so much for playing with us at the Cutting Edge Challenge - we're so glad you did!
