New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash #SOS519

 Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS519 ...A "shop your stash" theme challenge!!  The theme for our new challenge that begins today is "Shower Me With Sunshine".  We want you to make a card for a baby shower or bridal shower.  I made my card for an upcoming baby shower.  From my stash, I dug out this "She's expecting" set that I won years ago in a blog challenge...can't remember which one or the company this mini set is from.

What will you find in your stash that could make a "shower" card??  We can't wait to see your creation!!  Hop on over to our blog for complete details about this new challenge and also check out the great cards made by the rest of our design team...I am sure that they will inspire you!!

3 other challenges also inspired today's card...

As You See It // AYSI320 ...A sketch challenge!!  Every card has a sketch and I love it when a challenge offers a sketch that pairs up perfectly with the theme I have swirling around in my mind.  I flipped this sketch so that I could use a larger circle.

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI591 ...A cupcake inspired challenge!!  The photo of cupcakes used for this challenge calls for a color combo of frosty blue, Mocha, and white.

Addicted to Stamps & More // #ATSM465 ...A technique challenge!!  For this current challenge we are to use stencils and/or die cuts.  I used both on today's card...stenciled my edge and used a stitched circle die.

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Just Us Girls // #JUG721 ...A color challenge!!  Purple, orange, and mustard are the colors called for in this current challenge.  This color combo right away reminded me of sunset backdrop...so a silhouette card was created!!

{PIN}spirational Challenges // APR2024 ...A Pinterest inspired challenge!!  During the month of April we are challenged to use embossing.  For today's card I used both dry embossing (for my background) and heat embossing (for my sentiment).  Covered both types of embossing with today's creation.
