DT CARD CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS CHALLENGE NO. 11


My next project is for my DT contribution to Creative Inspirations Challenge No. 11 - "Anything but a card". I have chosen to make a Desk Calendar using an Acrylic Picture Frame. I have stamped a Sugar Nellie image from the second Gorjuss Girl Collection, and this little lady is called Flower Girl. She has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens, and then cut out and mounted with 1mm foam pads. I also ran a strip of lilac card through a Martha Stewart punch, and cut a calendar page with a deckled rectangle nesty and dusted the edges with a chalk eye ink pad to soften the edges. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey paper pad called Eva, and to finish this page off, some tiny lilac gems, a strip of ribbon, and paper flowers - all from my craft stash. Many thanks for stopping by, and hope you will join us on Creative Inspirations Challenge! Happy crafting!
