Double Challenge (Kitchen Sink & Caardvarks)

While admiring several cards submitted for Dawn McVey’s recent Raspberry Suite Challenge, I came across Courtney Baker’s site, “One day at a time” and this challenge

where we’re asked to use something from the (junk) mail on our cards or scrapbook pages.

I absolutely love this idea since I “try” to recycle as much as possible.

I was a tad bummed because nothing (or so I thought) workable came in yesterday’s mail and our mailperson doesn’t arrive until after 1:00 PM.

tick…tock…tick…tock…

So…while running around the house doing chores, I came across this….



I immediately saw the possibilities and this is what I came up with…


I'm thinking it might also work for the ‘Take a Bow” challenge over at Caardvarks where we’re challenged “to use ribbon in some wonderful way!”

Two challenges in one...makes me smile!

Card Deets:
Fall Sale Postcard (Chicos)
Fun Dots (Offray Ribbon)
Pumpkin Halloween Ribbon (Michaels)
Fall Plywood Pumpkins by Harvest Crafts (Hobby Lobby)
Raffia

Thanks for looking…

Aren't you clever ... I love how you incorporated the word from the post card into your design ... and what a fun way to feature ribbon.

When you are given a challenge you surely rise to the occasion! So brilliant to use the sale flyer as your card front and oh, yeah, the raffia and pumpkin trim is fantastic!
