H is for hello


With a little creativity I was able to create this card to enter in a few challenges this week. It's been a long time since I had some me time and I am also working on a mini album which I hope to be done this week.
In the mean time - some card creation in the midst of cleaning my craft room was a nice break for me.
Here this card was used with the sketch from Priscillasstyles. Each square was cut at 1 1/4" in case you would like to give the sketch a try.
I followed along with the color challenge of red at Scrappy Frog Challenge blog as well as the twine/ribbon requirement at Crazy 4 Challenges. What really got me to start my card was the summer themes as Anything Goes and For Fun Challenge. The embossing is done with a Spellbinders embossing metal die. My first try and I had to find the correct sandwich to use to get the right impression. I ran my "dune" color cat eye over it. The rest of the card elements follow The Pink Elephant of 3 pattern paper (from Stampin' Up) 2 buttons (from my stash) 1 punch (the letter H from a Provo Craft die and ribbon/twine from The Twinery.
