Delightful Challenges

Good Morning Everyone.  I hope you're all doing well.  I had a day off yesterday, of course it was spent running a child from the orthodontist to the dentist back to the orthodonist, but hey - it was a day off.

This week's Delightful Challenges challenge is a fun one....

Use Patterned Paper

This is the perfect opportunity to use the wonderful digi papers that Digital Delights by Louby Loo has to offer.  That's the opportunity I took and my features a fun pattern from the recently released Fabulous Fifties paper pack.

I haven't made one of these cards in awhile.  The tutorial is on SCS for a flap card is here.  I also added ticket sentiments and then (not pictured) and little strip of more patterned paper to create a pocket.  The idea here is to slip in a gift card.

I created the flower myself.  Let me just say this blunty, I stink at making ribbon flowers.  I watch so many You Tube videos and I still can't get it.  But this one turned out better than many of the others I attempted.  Buh-lieve me.

Anyway, I hope you join us at Delightful Challenges this week.
