Challenge @ More Than Favors, Made by Momo, & Penny's Challenges



Challenge from More Than Favors: 

"Well it's Wednesday again!!! Let's have some fun and get inspired. Once again I decided to do another sketch challenge. As you know this is my favorite way to start a project whether it be a scrapbook page or a card. So this week I went back to my favorite place for sketches... Page Maps! Let's be creative gang. You can chose to do any type of project you would like, any size, color or theme. Can't wait to see your creations!  Here is this weeks sketch:

Challenge at Made by Momo: Flowers


Challenge at Penny's Challenges
# 35 - "Anything Goes"



Here is my entry for all of those challenges:


Here is a thank you card I made.  It measures 5" x 7" and features a picture I took of my Lilac tree this spring. I cut it in 2" squares and reassembled it to match the tile look in the sketch.  All the paper is from DCWV "Flower Shower" spring matstack.  The stamps are from American Crafts. The sheer purple ribbon is from the Dollar Store, I buy it in all kinds of colors (I get nine yards for a buck).

I mounted the lilacs and the "thank you" up on pop-dots to give it lots of dimension. 



Here's just one more view, hopefully you can see all the dimension!


I'm always happy when I get comments on my work and would love to hear what you think.  

Please come on back to my blog on Sunday, August 8th for the beginning of a 5-stop Back to School Blog Hop.  I'll have a total of eight different projects (one each day of the blog hop, Aug 8th -Aug 15th) and will be giving out some wonderful blog-candy. If you want to know what it will be, check back tomorrow morning.

Thanks for visiting Cards by CG, please become a follower and come with me on my creative journey!
