My final stroll down the Blvd. and an Annoucement

Happy Sugar Saturday!

It's time for another challenge with Modern Sugar Blvd., and this week it's brought to you by me! So the challenge is to create a shaped card. Not the normal shape - the 4.25 x 5.5 card is a classic, but let's morph it! Here's my take on it, and yes, it's sort of a rectangle - but it's cute!

My card is actually a gift card/money holder. I dusted off a Coluzzle template of file folders. Then I decorated it with papers from a Basic Grey paper stack that was given to me. I used one of my favorite digi-images from Modern Sugar Blvd. found here.

The inside view, I have a strip of paper that is adhered along the sides but left "open" in the center to fit a gift card or money. I hope you join in the challenge and don't forget to visit the other Sugars, I've seen some really shapely cards!!

I said I had an announcement. As my DT term ends with Modern Sugar Blvd., I've been accepted as a Design Team Member for MyGrafico Challenge blog and I couldn't be more excited! I am working with the amazingly talented Martha and fellow-Sugar Crystal and many other very talented ladies!! Challenges are issued every Monday, so be sure to check us out!

This card is what I made to play along with Challenge #10 - a color challenge Brown and Teal. I found this card idea on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. I've mentioned her a time or two (or more) on my blog.

I don't even remember what she called this card - but it's a slider card. This image is a FREE image on MyGrafico and it is so much fun!

Slide the top portion up and reveal the hidden message inside. Cute! I used a sentiment from the new Unity KOTM set. Now that I've made this card, I see so many possibilities for it. Embossing... other stamping... more embellishments. Whooo-hooo!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking that final walk with me down Modern Sugar Blvd., it's been a blast!

Mel these two cards are adorable! That is one of my favorite images from the store too, I love what you did with it. :D I am walking down the Blvd. with you, we were original Sugars!
Your teal and brown card is so pretty, what a fun technique! I've never seen it before, the possibilities are endless with that fun hidden panel. :D Looks like you are enjoying the SAHM role. Fun, isn't it? ;)
