I've only made one Centre Stepper card before, and that didn't have the extra "step" in it... I think I like this one better :) Penny´s Paper have Step card or Easel card for their challenge, and the Anything Goes Challenge is Shaped Not Square so I'm entering there. Cuttin' and Stampin' has Shaped and Divas by Design has Shaped (not square or rectangle) so I'm hoping my rectangle-with-a-bump gets me in there too; I know I can enter the Hobbycutz challenge which is More Than One Fold - this thing took longer to cut and fold than all the rest of the making!
As I said I used a "boy" image because the card is from my hubby, this is Joe With Flowers from Digistamp Boutique coloured with Copics. I'll be entering Left of Center Creative Challenges who want us to use a digi image, Digistamp Boutique's monthly challenge as I've used one of their images and Tuesday Throwdown's challenge Smell the Roses (flowers in the image or paper, I have both) Colour Me Copic and Great Impressions both have Celebrations as their challenge theme, so I'm entering them too.
The papers are from Kaisercraft - Peachy Keen, I love these colours and we're heading into autumn here so they are season appropriate; My Mums Craft Shop has Spots or Stripes for their challenge (I have stripes), Oozak has Anything Goes with Earth Tones for their challenge, Clear It Out has Anything Goes, Use Stash and 2 or more papers; the papers and the cardstock (DCWV) are most definitely from stash, as are the paper flowers that I got from a discount store right at the beginning of my card making journey, so I'm in. Stamping With The Dragon has A Flower for Mum while Crafty Calendar, Without Words, By the Cute and Girly, Simon Says Challenge,
Card Mania Challenges, and My Sheri Crafts all have some sort of "Flower" challenge so I'm entering them.
I've used two dies from Memory Box, Puffy Clouds and Wrought Iron Fence - this is their first outing, I LOVE them! I think the fence is really effective in this brown colour, it looks kinda rusty :) I used the largest of the clouds on the "inside" (back?) of the card to decorate the jotting panel, My Time to Craft has Show Us Your Inside for their challenge, I'm in!
I created the sentiment on the computer, feel free to grab it if you like (it will be on my Freebies page for later anyway). Aud Sentiments wants us to use a Sentiment for mother and child, I think this is suitable so I'm in there,2 Sisters Challenge, Creative Belli, Creative Inspirations, Going Grey with Scrap-Creations, Hanna and Friends and The Squirrel and the Fox all have Mother's Day themes so I'm entering there too.
Crafty Creations want us to KISS - Keep It Sweet and Simple that is ;) This card really is quite simple (folding aside, lol) so I think it can go there, Love to Scrap, The Paper Shelter, Whimsy Stamps and Forever Friends all have Anything Goes challenges - I KNOW it can go there!
Well, that's it for today's card, I'll be back on the weekend with a DT card, until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
