Paper Lovin' Gals Challenge #4 meets Mojo Monday 213!!


It's time for Paper Lovin' Gals Challenge # 4.  I can't believe we are onto challenge #4 already!  Crazy!!  So what do you see in the above photo??  The patterns, colors, silhouette, the wood grain???  There is a lot going on with the picture and I would love to see what YOU see!  Join us this week for PLG #4

Here is what I created...


I think I saw a little of everything from the photo.  This was my first attempt at a fan-fold flower without using any kind of scorer.  Just my fingers.  It worked and I am happy.  :-)  And as you can see, the colors, patterns, wood grain all jumped out at me.  This is one of a few Thank You cards that I need to make for my Hubby's work.  They all gave him quite the "Send-Off" last week for his last day.  He is now in a new position (same company)... and I think he is missed at his old one.  That is a good thing!  Everyone did LOTS of sweet things for him... so I am turning into a card making fool this week.

I also used the Sketch from MOJO Monday #213 this week to help me lay this all out.  Gotta love their sketches.  I chose the square option.

Come on over to Paper Lovin' Gals for challenge # 4!!  We have a few new DT members to introduce to you as well!  Sooo much inspiration over there!  You will surely not be disappointed! You need to link up your creation by Tuesday, November 8th at 8pm PST.

We will choose a Gal Pal (Grand Prize) and 2 Honorable Mentions each week and award badges for your blogs.  Every now and then we will have PRIZES too!  So what do you have to lose?  You can't win if you don't play.  :-) 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you get to craft some this week!!

Absolutely a beauty! The person who receives this card should be honored! Aren't fan fold flowers gorgeous and fun to make?! (you did a wonderful job WITHOUT any kind of scoring tool (don't think I could do it!)
