When You Gotta Go..., Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge #5

Good Morning everyone. I hope your weather is as wonderful as it is here in New England! I just love everything about Springtime. This card is for the first challenge of April, Challenge #5 at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. The theme for this week is SEW CUTE, create a card or project using a cute stamp or digi image!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is

They have absolutely adorable digital images that are wonderful to create with and the ladies couldn't be nicer or more helpful over there. All of the DT cards that were created this week used a Sew Many digi that was graciously donated to each of us by Sew Many and they are offering a great prize to the winner of this week's challenge so be sure to pull out your cutest stamp and play along with us, just remember to use Basic Grey paper on your creation.

I created an easel card this week because I just learned how to make them and it was so much fun I decided to make one for our challenge! This image made me laugh when I first saw it and thought of the comforts of home! I thought the image should look 3D so I popped up just the top half of the image after I cut it out. I also added two different colors of Flower Soft, green grass and citrus, to the ground to give the image some dimension. It took a couple of tries to get the wood to look weathered but I am happy with it.

Please look at what our wonderful DTs created that are SEW CUTE!
