So, doesn't the hop sound like fun??? Today's peeks were awesome, and I am sure people already have guesses, but the next round starts here tomorrow morning at 7amCST!! I can't wait for you to see my peek, I am TRULY a tease, LOL!!
Anyhow, I had too much caffeine today trying to get rid of my migraine that WILL NOT let go, so I am here, blogging and stamping, fun for me(not so much for my headache, but I an NOT tired and totally sick of sitting in the dark)!! I decided to combine today's Ways To Use It Challenge and Friday's Limited Supplies Challenge for my card, I just love it when they post those early!! So, for the Ways to Use It challenge, you had to alter your DP, so I took my versamarker and used it and some holographic gold EP to add some sparkle to the centers of the flowers. For the Limited Supplies challenge, you had to use a black card base. Not my normal, but I KNEW it would work with this new set from Paper Pretties, and I think I was right!! I stamped my take out box on Gina K. white and on some Green Tea DSP from SU. I then cut out the white layer with my Oval Nestabilities, and then I paper pieced the box. I then layered it with Baja Breeze and added a spiral clip with the same color ribbon on it. The chopsticks are also from the set, and they were colored with Copics, cut out, and adhered to the main image. The sentiment pennant( I love it when Anna Wight does this, so I had to copy!!) was cut and glued down, then I added a Baja Breeze button with a black glitter dot to it.
