The Early Bird

So I found some interesting challenges today that I combined to create one card. I enjoyed the challenge of putting them all together. It was quite fun.

The first is CASology with a Clean And Simple assignment and a farm theme. The second was CAS Colors and Sketches with the colors Melon Mambo, Garden Green, and Pumpkin Pie. I used Close to My Heart colors Smoothie, Topiary, and Sunset. The third was Shopping our Stash to use some of your favorite things. My current favorite thing is this stamp set I used: Catch You Later. I've had it forever, but have not played with it much, so I challenged myself to use it this week. The fourth challenge was Tuesday Morning for the sketch. I altered it just a little to fit the CAS assignment. The fifth and final challenge was the banner challenge from Heart 2 Heart. So I made a cute little banner out of cardstock scraps. I hope you like it!

I chose a White Daisy cardstock base, and layered a White Daisy triangle over top of it. Then I cut out 1-inch colored squares and folded them at the bottom, and cut them into triangles from the fold point. They became dimensional that way, so I popped them up with foam dots. Then I stamped the rooster with the sentiment on White Daisy and cut it out into a circle. The little pin clip is stuck into the foam tape for the small circle element of the sketch.

I hope you can join me at these challenges today!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Topiary, Smoothie, Sunset
Stamps: Catch You Later
Ink: Black
Other: Pin Clips
