It's Friday and that means it's time for another Blogger's Challenge Group challenge. This week our challenge was to use the layout feature on Pg. 141 of the SU Spring/Summer catalog. (see photo at left).
Okay I must admit that when I saw the layout I seriously considered skipping out on this week. I did not like that layout at all. However....I decided to go ahead with the challenge and see what I could come up with. After several attempts at getting my layout just the way I wanted it to be I finally came up with this card. I'm happy with how it turned out & hope you enjoy it too.
Card base is Whisper White which I covered with a piece of textured Ruby Red card stock.
I added a strip of Whisper White, Pretty in Pink and Designer Paper (OOH LA LA CUPID - by BO-BUNNY PRESS) and added the piercing.
I stamped my Cupid (HERO ARTS) on Whisper White card stock with Ruby Red Ink, cut out one wing with an X-acto knife and highlighted the wings with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The edges were distressed with the Cutter Kit & Ruby Red ink. Then I added a small piece of embossed Pretty in Pink card stock (Cuttlebug Hearts embossing folder) and pierced the top.
I stamped the Love sentiment (Hero Arts) with Ruby ink and added a tiny red heart (JoAnn's), then layered on the Pretty in Pink scallop (SU) and pierced this as well. The Scallop & Focal Image were raised up with dimensional tape.
While this may not have been a favorite layout I think it met the challenge and I had fun doing it. Be sure to check out all the other great samples. You can find the Blogger's Challenge Group on my side bar.
