Lori, our hostess for January, challengedthe members of the Crazy 4 Challenges team (and YOU) to make birthday cards, as this is her birthday month.
I used this rose image by Innovative Stamp Creations, our company sponsor for the first two weeks of January. I seem to be in a purple/plum mood lately and just love to mix those colors with celery (and black 0f course) I use one of my new 'toys', the deep Martha Stewart punch which I must say I just LOVE!!! I punched in black as well and offset it a bit to highlight the border. (Not really sure why I have this fixation with black.....guess it is just ME!!!!) I did some piercing, used my fav Marvy scalloped corner punch on some corners, added a bit of ribbon, used my Nesties classic oval to make the tag. And....that is the way it evolved!!!
Now be sure to check out the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to see the dazzlers created by the rest of the team. Here are links to the blog and to the individual team members' blogs as well.
Have a wonderful day!!!!
