Anything But a Card....
Good morning! It's time for another challenge from Ruby's Rainbow; this fortnight my teamie Jackie has chosen "Anything But a Card". Sounds interesting, right? The possibilities are endless!
At first I wasn't sure what to do, but I happened to find some fun little tin pails at Target's Dollar Spot. I bought a few to have on hand and decided to embellish one and make a tag to match for our challenge. It will be good to have on hand when a birthday party pops up. The bucket could hold candy, nail polish, a gift card or all three! LOL
I colored my little chick with pencils and cut her out with Nestabilities. The tag is cut with a PTI die and I used Jen del Muro's July SFYTT for my layout. I added a bit of ribbon, Baker's Twine and some brads. The image panel is popped up. For the pail, I picked assorted coordinating ribbons and tied them onto the handle.
Image: Stampendous Calendar Chick
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and American Crafts DP
Embellies: Assorted Ribbons, PTI Dark Chocolate Baker's Twine, Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, PTI Tag Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos
I hope you will head on over to Ruby's Rainbow to see what the rest of the DT created for this challenge...I would love to see your "Anything But a Card" too!
I am also entering my project in the following challenges:
