I told you yesterday about the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges at Splitcoaststampers. I got to play along yesterday with the challenge from Lori Craig, HYCCT1501C- Split the Difference. The challenge is to split the image panel with a sentiment. I’m not sure I completely followed the intent of her challenge but since these cards are for a cause, I’m sure she will give me a little latitude. *smile*
I colored this beautiful flower from Blended Bloom with my new Zig Clean Color Markers. I just got them on Friday and I’m already completely obsessed with them. I’ll have some more about them in the upcoming weeks. I embossed the flower in gold and then just colored with the two colors. I added a sentiment from Because I Care (retired) and embossed it in gold too. A few gold sequins to add a little more detail.
You can play along with these challenges too. There are fun inspirational themes every day brought by some of my favorite stampers! All the details on how to mail your cards to MD Anderson Cancer Center can be found there too. This is one of the best things you can do with your talents so I encourage you to join in where you can!
