I decided to have a go at a three in one challenge so this is Daring Cardmakers, Dottie’s World and Friday Sketchers entry … the challenges???
This week’s theme is All Mixed Up.
How come the majority of girls’ cards are pink and flowery and the boys are blue and have absolutely no flowers at all?
What about cars for girls??? hmmm?
This week Tracie wants you to mix up those genders and create cards with a little bit of something not normally found for that sex.
Everything today is focused on environmental issues, so lets GO GREEN in our Sunday Challenge! Show me how green you can get! But this is a green dish with a few extra ingredients, sprinkle it with three buttons or brads, season with a little ribbon, and finally add that special little “recycled something”. Plus of course it must contain at least one Charmed Cards & Crafts download.
What do you think?
I followed the sketch, albeit on a different shaped card, just adjusting the flowers slightly to accommodate George and his wheelbarrow. All the papers are shades of green – hard to tell but the main backing piece is actually a very dark green corrugated card.
There are definitely flowers on the card – they had to be turquoise to match the thin wire so that may just fail part of the Daring Cardmaker challange 😦 … and for Dottie’s World there are not only three brads but certainly a lot of buttons on the backing paper. Everything came out of my stash, even George had been hanging around some little while so that’s reasonably green 🙂 BUT WHAT ABOUT THE RECYCLED BIT OF THE DOTTIE’S WORLD CHALLENGE ????
Aha!!! Look closely at the scalloped circles and then have a look at this …
