Crazy 4 Challenges, a Thank You, and Blog Candy Winners!

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(C4C218).  

This week's challenge is 
 make a 3.5 X 5.5 card!

For my card I am using Verve's Sunny Days, With Love, and You and I  stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above Rounded Scallop Frame, Flag It Die, and Leafy Sprigs die sets.    I die cut the rounded scallop frame.  I clear embossed the scalloped outer frame with versamark and clear embossing powder.  Then, I stamped the sentiment and heart in versamark and white embossed the inner portion.  I smudged some white pigment ink around edges and a dab or two in the center for effect.  I finished my card with some stamped sprigs as well as adding a seam binding bow in tomato using Verve's Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection.  I am using this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 327. 


Since I used Fusion Card Challenge sketch last week, I decided to use the inspiration picture this week.  I found some older Basicgrey paper called June Bug in my discarded stash and thought it would work.  I am calling it "Vintage" Basicgrey.

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

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
