THD Challenge #4


Wow, it feels like it has been a long time since I have blogged. I suppose it has only been a week, but it feels like forever.  

Back today with a card for The Hearts Desire Challenge #4.  Check out the inspiration:



Perfect for back to school colors, no?!  I can hear the ideas percolating in your head.... :)




I was tempted to go back to school themed but I decided not. Though I went with most of the colors, I skipped the red.  I focused in on the sunflowers and the black and white patterns.  For this project I used a fun combination of supplies.  First, notice the fabulous Bloom DP from American Crafts.  Next I used the Hoop Die from Neat and Tangled.  It was fun to use a wood-grain paper and gold for the facet to make it look realistic.  The sunflower, from Lawn Fawn, is fun with the DP that says hello behind.  The washi and the  sentiment were the final step to make this fun thank you card.  

Now, I highly encourage you to do two things:

1. Head on over to the THD blog and check out the SUPER FABULOUS (no joke) inspiration by the DT.  

2. Join us for this fun challenge. 


Thanks for visiting and can't wait to see what you create!
