Something in my mind has flipped recently and I think I have purpose for the first time since getting off my anti-depressants. It’s manifested itself in all sorts of training. I’ve started working out daily, just hopped back on the paleo train and I’ve started trying to actively get more papercrafting done. One of the best ways I’ve found to push myself to try new things is with challenges! I stumbled across this one from Studio Calico on their blog and decided to take the plunge and give it a shot!
First, I grabbed a pre-made card and sprayed it with three of the LE Neon Mini Mister Huey’s: Punky Brewster (purple), Trapper Keeper (orange) and My Little Pony (pink). The next layer is some American Crafts glitter tape in Powder and Marine. The circles were from their March printable which I printed out on cardstock and cut with my circle cutter. The yellow circle is glued directly to the card. Rad has one foam, you are my sunshine has two. Finally, I took the thanks stamp from my Summertime Charm set from Lawn Fawn and used it for the sentiment.
I have to say, I really struggled with finding the right thing to use on this card before I settled on the circles. I’ve discovered that my stash is lacking in bright, punch-y plain papers. This is something I need to fix ASAP!
Please let me know what you think in the comments below OR share with me a challenge you’ve accepted! I’d love to see your work!
UPDATE (7/29/13): I actually won with this card! Many thank yous to the folks at Studio Calico!
