Good day to you all, its Thursday again and that means it's means NEW RELEASE DAY over at Meljen's Designs. Check out these fabulous images (which can be purchased along with the rest of Meljen's fabulous images, at the the Whimsy Stamps shop).
As always, with the new release comes a new CHALLENGE. Yay. This week's challenge is a RECIPE CHALLENGE. The recipe is 3 Colors, 2 Patterned Papers, and 1 Bow.
For my card today I chose to use "Baby Shower". I have so many pregnant friends that I got really excited about this release. My favorite is the one I chose to share with you today. For this card I embossed a soft yellow cardstock to give the background some texture. I used my Nesties to cut some small circles - 4 of each kind of patterned paper I was using. I then overlapped them to make the mat. Then I matted the image with the same yellow cardstock. Finally I topped it off with wrapping the corners of the card with the white sheer ribbon and added the bow in the upper corner.
I am so excited about how this turned out. I can't wait to give it to my friend at her shower in June. She is having a baby boy and this will be perfect.
Now head on over to the Meljen's Designs DT blog so that you can check out this week's challenge along with all the fabulous DT examples using the new images. FYI, the challenge gives you a chance to win free images. Also don't forget to grab this week's FREEBIE while you are there.
