Make It Monday #3

Another Make It Monday challenge at PTI...

this week is glitter strips with scor tape.

I'm so glad vellum is over...

even with Kara at kandrdesigns tip about vellum tape...

it is not my friend.

And unfortunately...

not much of a glitter person either.

But this is what challenges are...

right?

To challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone...

try new things...

I just wish they would give me one that didn't feel as though I was competing in the Tri-Wizard Challenge.

But I'm not going to wax on about what could have be done different...

I've already seen a couple of things...

but instead I'm going to tell you what I like about this...



I love that it only took about 20 minutes...


instead of 2 hours staring out the window...

moving this...

cutting that.

I love the mod feel of the colors...

with the mod feel of the frame from TT Halloween

I love that I borrowed Laurie from SoapboxCreations idea for using Four of a Kind...

thank you Laurie.

And I love my leather flower.

It's the only set of flower dies I have...

I'm so going to have to get more.

WOW this card turned out gorgeous. I do like the color combination and your flower. I am not a great fan of Glitter either - so this will indeed be a challenge for me as well. I hardly use it in my projects. The same goes for vellum also, but surprisingly, I liked the Vellum Sentiment strip idea and ended up doing two cards for that challenge. So, I am hoping this challenge will help me overcome my glitter issues. LOL.

Oh this is soo pretty! I like your flower and that big glitter strip! I don't have much "colored" glitter but this challenge sounds fun!

Michelle said...

I LOVE this card, Renee! The colors are so much fun! I like the simple layout. It's one I'm going to have to CASE. You also used several of my favorite PTI dies. Great job on this challenge.

Ohhh, this one is so bright and cheery~love that it only took 20 minutes (I tend to take the 2 hour route waaaay too often).
PS: I so know what you mean about fitting into those 20 year old jeans~~but I'm still holding out hope to get into the ones hanging in my closet! LOL
