Happy Friday, peeps! Happy February! Oh my, where did January go?! It's time for another As You See It challenge! I just love these "eclectic" challenges....check it out:
When Poppy Parade came out several years ago, SU offered 6x6 DSPs and luckily, I had saved some of them! One piece had this fabulous stripe, and another a cheerful polka dot, so I chose them as my backgrounds and used some elements from Picture Perfect Birthday to create a bright birthday card:
I fulfilled the "bow" and the "cutout" criteria from the challenge with the bow from the stamp set, stamped in Poppy Parade and Real Red; the candles were stamped in Poppy Parade, stamping off the base to create a lighter tone:
The sentiment from the same set was stamped and diecut, and I used some sentiments (and another bow) from Itty Bitty Birthdays for the inside:
And I almost forgot; the Festive Friday challenge this time around is to use "red", so I am entering there as well! I hope this hue is considered red enough, LOL!
Poppy Parade is not a color I normally gravitate to, but I really like using it on a monochromatic card--it definitely packs a punch! I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week...check out what the DT did with their Poppy Parade! You can see them all here at the AYSI blog!
Cassidy had a two-hour delay, so she got dressed and did her hair at our house yesterday. She is learning to take care of her hair on her own...imagine my surprise when she made her own ponytails:
She did a good job, too! I always say "I don't do hair"...my mom never let me grow my hair long so I am not adept at the finer points of hair styling, LOL! But she is on her way! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
