Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C219)!

Happy Saturday!  We have a new and fun challenge for you this week at Crazy 4 Challenges!   Check out the C4C blog for more challenge details at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C219).  

This week's challenge is 
a sketch!

For my card I am using Verve's Bloom & Grow, Lean on Me, Poppy Birthday, and Remember This stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above Banner Bundle, Elegant Leaves, and Build a Poppy die sets.   I combined some MME designer papers and added some embossing, distressed the edges, and then added some ink distressing for even more added texture.  I combined some regular stitching with some zigzag stitching to create some varied textures.  I stamped the die cut images and layered with dimensionals.    I finished my card with some Pastel Sequin Mix died to match with a copic marker.  I then added some tiny gold pearls to the center. 

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
