Crazy for Challenges: Thankful!

Happy Saturday!   It is time for another Crazy 4 Challenge with the Crazies!   Check out the blog for more challenge details with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C168). 

I am your C4C January 
Challenge Host!  
Week 2 Challenge is all about Shaping It Up!

Shape it Up!   
Anything but a standard A2 or 
square card! We want to see
you Shape It Up!

For my card I am using some PTI stamps and dies!   I chose to make a half scalloped circle card with the fold at the bottom.  Card stands beautifully on its own plus it is a great size for an A10 sized envy.   A gift card or cash will fit fabulously in this half scalloped creation.  

For my shape card I am also playing along with PTI weekly Make it Monday Challenge.  This week is all about a rainbow of colors in either a die or stamped format.  I am using Papertrey's card stocks and die cut a few times PTI Hello Sunshine die.  I layered the colors in order and stitched in place and to the framed scalloped background.   Next I die cut the thankful from the Counting My Blessings die collection.   I cut it out three times.  One in true black, vintage cream, and sunrise sunset card stocks.  I layered them and staggered the sunrise slightly for added depth.  I stamped it with the Background Basics: Houndstooth with Sunrise Sunset ink.  I added some Melon Berry polka dotted satin ribbon loop tab and a few colored coordinated PTI buttons. 

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

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
