Crafters of Faith & Calendar Girls - March

Hello Everyone!   In my being so busy of late, I have missed you all!!!  I do hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful Easter Sunday.

In running around to catch up, I have created another duel card.  I hope you don't mind!  I had cards to create for Crafters of Faith and Calendar Girls on SCS.

Jeanette, gave us a great challenge at the Crafters of Faith.  Our card creation is to be for Easter, but not in the bunny kind of way.   In the true sense.  

I found a great digital sentiment that I had on hand from Create with TLC.  It worked perfectly with an image that I had from Stampin' UP!.  The image is stamped on white vellum and heat embossed for the top layer.  The second layer is stamped on cardstock, then layered with the vellum piece to create a shadow effect.  I attached them with tiny brads.   I also incorporated some SCORING since I kind of failed at that on my COF card last month {LOL}.

You will notice that there is no DP on this card, and that was the challenge that I posed to the Calendar Girls for their creations this month.   I had heard some gasps at this challenge, but I cannot wait to see what they have come up with.  Not really as hard as you might think...come on, give it a try!

In my mantra 'use what'cha got', my ribbon is a recycle, the images were saved from when I was playing with vellum a long time ago and the green scalloped edge was a scrap that was trimmed on another project.   At this rate I should be able to buy something new in twenty years!  LOL

Please be sure and stop by the Crafters of Faith and Calendar Girls blogs.  You will see some serious talent.  Their blog lists are on the right sidebar.

Thanks, for stopping by.  Have a great day!
