Pile It On - Think Out of The Box

It's Sunday so it's time for another new challenge at Pile It On and we have a fabulous sponsor Some Odd Girl!
All the team got to work with their choice of one of their weird and wonderful images and I chose Lounging Kaylee.

Along with the image the team was challenged to "Think Out of The Box" and do something a little different from normal. I really shy away from aperture cards and so when I found a challenge which needed a "window" I built my card around it.

Lil Red Wagon - Put a Window in It
365 Cards Day 81 - Setting the Scene "On a Picnic"
Crafty Calendar - The Great Outdoors
Crafty Cardmakers - Inside Out
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Fab N Funky - Make Your Own
Kah Wink E Dink - Make Your Own
Cricut Cardz - Bird or Butterfly (and use your Cricut)
Stamp With Sarah Kay - Flower Power
Paper Take Weekly - Say It With Flowers
Polly Craft - Summer Blooms
Cupcake Craft - Blooming Charming
Flutterby - Flowers and Butterfly
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Cute and Girly
Totally Gorjuss - Bling It On
Creative Inspirations - Card for a Child
Ooh La La - Bright and Cheerful
Crafty Ann's - Lots of Color
Flourishes - Chipboard
For Fun - Choice, I picked the color combo of Pink, Green, Blue and Yellow
Penny's - 1 Ribbon, 2 Pattern Paper, 3 Embellishments
Crazy Challenge - Something New (the image and the papers)
CRAFT - Birthday or Celebration
Pixie Dust Studios - Add a Pearl
Digi Doodle Shop - Sparkle, Glitter, Glitz
Diva Stamper - Photo Inspiration (flowers and butterfly and girly)
Meljens - Seeing Spots
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
Stampin For The Weekend - Make Someone Smile/Cheer them Up

Card Recipe:

Image - Lounging Kaylee
Paper - Sparkly Sweet by K&Co
Butterflies - Sparkly Sweet Grand Adhesions by K&Co
Chipboard Sentiment - Wild Saffron Adhesive Chipboard Buttons by K&Co
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Pearls - Queen and Co
Flowers - Cricut Accent Essentials and Wild Orchid Crafts

Here you can see inside the card with cute Kaylee lounging on the grass looking at the butterflies.

Here's another view peeking in through the window!

I had fun with this one as it really stretched me at first but once I got going there was no stopping me!
So please, step out of your comfort zone, out of your box and come and join us over at Pile It On this week and you could be our lucky winner!

Super cute and I think the "outside of the box" will be a challenge for me. How in world do you keep track of so many challenges and how long does it take you to do all of the links then linking your image onto their challenge. Just curious because my posts take me forever

Karen Howard said...

I was wondering the same thing about keeping track of all those challenges! Your card is super cute and I love the spring colors!

Ann Whitfield said...

Fabulous card Katie and I love that colours too. As for all those challenges - I'm in awe - but thank you for making Crafty Ann's one of them :oD
