Last week's creations by everyone that played with us were fantastic! I loved seeing each and every one of them. This week we have another great challenge for week 17 that I hope you will like and want to play along with us once again. I would also like to welcome two new talented ladies to the team, Jacki Randolph and Lorie Ames. They will be a wonderful addition to Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. Be sure to stop by and give them a warm welcome!
The theme for this week is patriotic, The 4th of July is this coming weekend for us in the USA so this is a perfect challenge for me this week! Because of the theme being difficult to match up with Basic Grey we are letting everyone play (including the DTs) without having to use Basic Grey paper.
I went with red, white, and blue colors for my card. I used a digi image from Sassy Cheryl's that I really liked. I also used a lot of star embellishments on my card. I also wanted to use this saying on the card but ran out of room on the front so I decided to make an easel card to incorporate it into the card.
All the ladies really did a fantastic jobs on their creations hoping to inspire you this week so please visit them and let them know how great they did.
So now what are you waiting for, come play with us I can't wait to see what you created this week!
These are some other wonderful challenges that I played along with
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #65-This challenge is a red, white, and blue patriotic challenge this week!
Little Red Wagon Challenge #34-Their challenge is also a patriotic one this week!
ABC Challenge-X for Xtra dimension is the challenge. I popped up the large flag and small clusters of stars, added all the acrylic stars and knotted the ribbon to give the extra dimension to my creation.
Crafty Catz Challenge #38-This fun challenge is to go digital. I love using digis so I went with a Sassy Cheryl image that was perfect for a patriotic theme.
Creative Card Crew Challenge 53-The challenge this week is to create an easel card. It was perfect for my card because I wanted to use this saying but needed more room and gave me a chance to use the red jeweled star also!
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 118-Reuse, Renew, Recycle! is their challenge. The item that I renewed is the large acrylic stars. A few years ago I bought the large stars for the kids to use on a space project. There were extras so I brought them home and threw them into the craft box thinking we would use them again the following year. They were a perfect finishing touch for this card.
Pixie Cottage Challenge #24-This challenge is a fantastic sketch and inside out! I made an easel card to bring the inside of my card out to work with the card's sketch and theme!
Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #13-This week the challenge is "Anything Goes", I love these challenges.
I love Digis Challenge #10-This challenge is "Emboss It" I embossed the back round panel with stars and even cut out and used some of the embossed stars.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #65-"Stars and Stripes" is the challenge this week, how perfect!
Pile It On Challenge #25-Fold it, Bake it, Do something with it! They are challenging us this week to do something with our paper. I folded it to make an easel card, I also cut my DP into panels and turned one of them upside down so the patterns were symmetrical on each side
One Stitch At a Time Challenge #19-This week the challenge is to use "stars and Stripes" on your creation!
Practical Scrappers Challenge-Their challenge this week is to use a border punch or decorative scissors on your creation. I use a Martha Stewart Border Punch below my image.
