Two Challenges in One!


This is my entry for Papertake Challenge and the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge. The Papertake challenge was to have button/buttons on tne card, while the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge was to have a secret message on it, so here I have combined the two. I used a Sugar Nellie stamp of her in the rain, splashing around and coloured her in using my distress inks in yellows and oranges. Then I used some Bazzil bling card to cover my card and then used some lovely yellow flowered paper , which I got free in some magazine and I love it, before I stuck it down onto my card I made a little flap on it to put my hidden message in. Then I mounted my stamped image on to some reddy/orange card and stuck it down with foam pads, to give it a raised effect. I then added some Prima flowers with flower brads to secure them and then I added some buttons on the top corner and one on the flap of the secret message. I then just wrote my secret message on in free hand.
