It's time for a new challenge for the newest My Grafico Challenge
This week's challenge is to make a card celebrating Retirement.
Well this was a real challenge for me but I think I pulled it off!
We got to work with a really super set of images called Funky Flamingo's and it was such fun!
Of course I had to add a few other challenges to this card.
There were 2 challenge blogs with similar "recipe" challenges that worked well together. Simon Says Stamp wanted 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image and Creative Card Crew wanted 2 papers, 3 flowers, 2 brads, 1 button and 1 ribbon (I had to add something to the inside to make it qualify but I still got it all in!)
Charisma Cardzwanted lots of flowers.
Stamp Something wanted favorite papers or colors and really this card has both. I love blue and green together and the papers are from DCWV and I use their stacks ALL the time!
The Secret Crafter wanted "One for the Girls" and I certainly think this Flamingo in her bikini and sipping a cocktail is one of the girls!
Creative Inspirations wanted an Animal theme and I hope a bird is classed as an Animal! LOL
I colored this cute Flamingo with Copic's and the dp are from the Citrus Stack by DCWV. The border punch is Martha Stewart, the flowers are Prima and fabric brads are The Paper Studio. I printed the sentiment myself.
The inside is more dp and a large message mat with a ribbon and button border.
Anyway, I hope you're not too relaxed to go and join in the My Grafico Challenge this week!
