A few challenges piqued my mojo this week. Firstly Seize the Birthday Challenge #220 has the prompt "Stripes". I've been looking at this lovely striped DP for over a week now - it's from the same pad that I used for Squeeze the Day. I knew I wanted to do something nautical with it and there's loads of brilliant inspiration in this photo at the Card Concept Challenge #158 but I've focused on the two cushions on the sofa.
I experimented with a frame because of the challenge at Just Add Ink Challenge #566 - after all a frame is a great way of focusing attention! However I thought I'd change it up by using a hexagonal frame when a simpler plain round frame would have been better - next time!
The Male Room Challenge #153 is celebrating their 8th birthday this month and as the inside of this card reads "I missed your birthday" I'm entering my belated masculine birthday card there as well.
Finally the Memory Box Lobster is NBUS (been sitting in its envelope for a few years now) so I'll be entering it into Darnell's NBUS Challenge #29!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit. If you leave a comment, I’ll be over the moon! I’ll also know you were here, so I can check out what you’ve been up to and we can get better acquainted!
