7 Kids College Fund Challenge #3 - A Recipe

The challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog this week is a recipe challenge...

  • 1 image carried by 7 KIDS COLLEGE FUND
  • 2 designer papers
  • 3 flowers
  • 1 sparkly thing

Here is my card for this challenge...

Speaking of 7 Kids College Fund, have you seen the new Magnolia collection called Cozy Autumn available for preorder in the store. Wow are they Gorgeous!!!

I colored Tilda With Cat with Distress Ink.

I have had this gold foil trim in my stash since I started card making 13 years ago. You might notice that the cut outs are actually little mice. How cute is that. I thought it could be my sparkly thing. However, it is perhaps more shiny than sparkly, so I added some Stickles to my flowers to be sure I covered the something sparkly.

The base for my card started with the sketch from Sketch Saturday. Here is the sketch and another picture of my card so you can see how the elements played out.

I also entered this card in the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge, which is to use Autumn colors.

There are a couple cards coming up that you will want to stop by to see. Tomorrow is Cute Card Thursday, and I can't wait to share my creation with you. On Saturday, September 4, I will be posting my first card for Sugar Creek Hollow as part of the Fall Release Blog Hop. I was accepted to the design team and can't wait to share these adorable digis with you. I have seen some of the amazing cards the design team have created, and you won't want to miss it!

I hope you will join our challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge, and go check out those new Magnolia's available for preorder in the store.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
