Bloggers' Challenge - Cardboard



The challenge at Bloggers' Challenge this week is to incorporate cardboard into a project. I decided to use a piece of cardboard that was at the bottom of a stack of card stock. I die cut a vine by Sissix from the cardboard and sponged the leaves with Fresh Foliage Folk Art Paint and Crushed Olive Distress Ink. The focal image is from Generation Redux by Artistic Outpost. I added Kraft Photo Corners to tie into the card stock vine. The sentiment is by Stampin Up. Embellishments include a paper flower I found in my stash, ribbon by Michael's and Pink Pearls by Martha Stewart. I felt as though the card was a bit flat, so I added just a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles here and there on my cardboard vine. I really appreciate being challenge to go beyond the regular paper or card stock I would have pulled together for my project. It is good to grow! Hope everyone has a great weekend. Heading to the beach with my sister that I have not seen in ages and my husband. Take care. Yvonne
