Emma's May Challenge

Today starts a new challenge over on Emma's cards. The theme this month is Pink and Blue and is being sponsored by Foil Play. Emma kindly asked me mid April if I would be a Guest Designer for this challenge and of course I said yes. At the time she asked me, I didn't know what the theme was but I agreed anyway. I found it difficult at first to think of something pink and blue and then remembered the Chic Boutique Cd.

This is my take on the theme.

I made this easel card from the berries shape from the Lacy Labels Cricut cartridge. I cut the shape from white card and covered this with the same shape cut in a centura pearl paper in mid blue. I cut some slightly smaller shapes in a pink backing paper from the Chic Boutique Cd from Kraftyhands and layered this on top of the easel and onto the base.  I wrapped a piece of coordinating blue ribbon around the middle of the card. The dies on the easel are Cheery Lynn dies - Butterfly In. I have decoupaged the butterflies and filled the centres with blue Pee Wee glitter (Reggae) although it is difficult to see from this photograph.
The image is from the topper section of the Chic Boutique Cd and is matted onto the mid blue centura pearl paper. I placed a card candy which was also covered in the same glitter, one in the bottom left corner and one in the top right corner.
I made a rosette stopper from a spare piece of the centura pearl paper and fixed a sentiment to it which reads 'Love'. This was also covered in the blue Pee Wee glitter. On each side of the stopper, I placed a flower flourish cut from the Pot Pourri Cricut cartridge, one in the normal position and the other flipped.
Inside the card is an insert which was taken into Craft Artist and a sentiment added - 'Just for you' which was then matted onto the centura pearl so that it all coordinates.
The challenge is open until 31st May, so why not pop along and enter. Your entry can be a card, scrapbook page or a 3D project and there is a maximum of three entries per person to make it fair. The prize is a £15 gift voucher from Foil Play. Emma and her team look forward to seeing your designs.
Thank you for popping by.
