Fun Confetti Frame Card!! =)

Pin It


Hello!! I hope your week has been GREAT!! =)
Today I wanted to play along with these two challenges both of which are BRAND NEW to me!!  =)
I have been seeing different challenges that had been posted on several of the blogs that I follow and I decided I was going to play along this week!!
So I decided to use the Sketch from the Retro Sketches #12 Challenge. Then I wanted to use the color challenge from the Color Q Challenge #138.
I started out thinking that I wanted to use the NEW stamp set from Hero Arts and Studio Calico. I LOVED the fun ziz zag frame and I decided to use it but wasn't for sure where I was going!!??
After picking out my paper from My Mind's Eye, Making Memories and Core`dinations cardstock I decided I wanted to try and make a fun confetti card and use the frame as a holder. I used the Swiss cheese EK Success punch, and two different Memory Box die (the hearts and butterfly border dies) to make my confetti using ALL of the challenge colors!! Then I made a fun sack out of a sandwich bag. I stitched down one side and across the top of one corner of a bag and then added my confetti and stitched it the rest of the way closed!! I then stamped the frame and cut it out!! I added the sentiment and the ribbon from May Arts and added it to the card base with dimensional adhesive!!
For the rest of my sentiment I decided to use the wooden letter by Pink Paislee and I colored them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Starfish and Tutti Fruity!! I then decided to add some Chandelier Glimmer Glam and I LOVE the way they turned out!! To finish off my card I added some dash lines around the outline pf my card!!
So here what it looks like!!

THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
