Carousel Birthday Challenges!


It was my turn to pick the challenges this weekend, and I have to admit, choosing three was a bit much for both me and my BFF. I picked the Paper Craft Crew sketch, Shopping Our Stash #288 "Days of Yore" (vintage/ shabby chic/ distressed), and the CAS Mix Up (stamping + corrugated + your choice from their "choices" sidebar). It was the SOS challenge I had the most trouble with, as did Barb.



I think part of the problem is I'm suffering from a knee injury which has kind of knocked the creativity out of me. I just want to sleep, but I can't find a comfortable position. (Same with sitting and standing.)


So anyway, this was all I could muster today. The corrugated cardstock is retired now. I liked that stuff so much that I stocked up when it was on clearance, and probably have enough to last me a lifetime, lol!

  4. Lovely card. I love the carousel embossed in gold. It really stands out. Adding that soft blue really made it pop. Great idea to mount on the corrugated cardboard.
