Family Fun!

The die, borrowed from a friend, is a depiction of childhood and a reminder of family fun. I wanted my card to exude the fun that children have doing the simple things.

My card fits into two challenges. I used the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #277 and the colors were inspired by Try Stampin' on Tuesday Color Challenge #4.


On a black card base, a panel of orchid paper was adhered with a bit of green in the upper left corner. The die cut image was adhered to the yellow panel, matted with black and backed with foam tape for dimension. The banners were added in keeping with the sketch, also backed with foam tape. The sentiment was hand-written. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of white and decorated with coordinating banners. The black gems were adhered to the front.

I hope you'll visit the challenge blogs and enjoy some challenge fun! Try Stampin on Tuesday Color Challenge #4 and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #277.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black, Barely Banana, Pistachio Pudding, Sweet Sugarplum
Die: Peachy Cheap Set "Spring & Easter"
Misc.: Stampin' Up! Dimensionals (foam tape); gems from stash
