Weekly Bloggers' Challenge

It's that time again! This week we were to follow the layout featured on Page 36 of the SU Spring-Summer Catalog (sympathy card). This is actually such a basic, easy layout.....one of those "old reliable" layouts. The trick this week was just to make it a little special or different. Hopefully, I succeeded!



It also does double duty since my niece just turned 7 and I need a card for her....now THAT was the difficult part! My own children are way past the little kid stage, so coming up with something that was cute and appropriate for a little girl was a challenge! Unfrogottable is a set that I earned 2 years ago from Sale-a-Bration....and one I chose just so I would have a fun set to play with for kiddie cards. Because I have yet to make that cute little frog any other color than green, it is not easy transforming it into a girly-girl card. Pink is a necessity for my niece! So, that was added, along with a couple of punch outs from the Scallop Punch, and glitter, of course! The flowers rolled on the Pixie Pink strip were first colored in the center with the White Gel Pen and then Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to each of the petals. A touch of ribbon was added for good measure and couldn't forget to add those little googly eyes! Sure hope she likes it!

this is just darling. I love your cards. I was just thinking about that today. You are the reason I fall in love with many sets. And by the way I re-created your card that you sent me for a class tonight! It is perfect I just changed the colors but kept the layout exactaly the same. Thanks so much. I will probably post it later this week. You rock.
