Paper Take Weekly and Crafty Sentiments Challenges
Anything Goes at Paper Take Weekly and Crafty Sentiments Challenges this week, so I am free to pick my favorite card that I made recently to share with you. I was inspired by a card on Pinterest to try this fun sponging background and love how it turned out. I cut a circle out of the front of a card with a Nestabilities circle and then used the circle I cut out to sponge the inside piece. First I drew the circle lightly with pencil on the inside white piece, then marked a spot on the right side to start the sponging. After sponging a semi-circle, I just moved the mask a little first up for the blues, and then down for the greens. I die cut some cat-tails (Spellbinders) and punched a bird (Martha Stewart) and added a birthday sentiment on SU punches to complete the card.
