February LAD DT Challenge

Hello everyone! I'm crawling out from my cave to participate in the February Lizzie Anne Design Team Challenge. (I wish I could have come out of "hiding" earlier, but things have been really hectic here lately!)

This month we were challenged to choose a card from The Sketchbook designed by another DT member other than ourselves, and design a new card based on their design.

For my first card, I chose this lovely card designed by Tricia. I veered off quite a bit from her design, but it was definitely the inspiration I used to create this. The stamps I've used come from the new Wonderful World Sixlets set. The flower and leaf are paper-pieced, and the grass was created with my Martha Stewart scissors. (Other details are listed below the photo.)

Stamps: Wonderful World Sixlets Set
Card Stock: White, Hopscotch Mat Pad (K & Company)
Ink: Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart Scissors, Cloud Di-namics dies (MFT), Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals


Next up is a card I've created using this pretty card created by Anya for inspiration. I've used my Dare to Be Fabulous Sixlets set, and some embossing powders (gold for the highlighted shoes, and black for the sentiment).

Stamps: Dare to Be Fabulous Sixlets Set
Card Stock: Gold, White, Rockabilly Specialty Paper (SU)
Ink: Tuxedo Black, VersaMark
Accessories: 1¼" Circle Punch, Gold & Black Embossing Powders, Scotch Foam Tape

Thanks for stopping by! Please check out the other DT girls to see their challenge cards as well! I'm sure they'll be as fabulous as ever!

Love the grass and the sentiment cloud on the first card. Great version of Anya's card. Similar and yet totally different. Love the pop of the gold shoes.
