Go-to Gal Designer Challenge


Happy Wednesday! And this is a special day here on the blog because its Go-to Gal challenge time!

Going forward on the last Wednesday of the month the Go-to Gals will take turns picking a manufacturer and challenge each other to create something using products from that manufacturer. Kind of a fun little hop to see how we put some of our favorite goodies to use. There are really no rules... some times we all play, some times we don't. But it will ALWAYS be fun!

Today we are sharing some October Afternoon projects. I used the 5 & Dime collection which I swooned over when I first saw it at CHA. I love the soft pink, drool over the roses... and especially dig all of those sweet vintage images.

Here is my card...
I stamped the flower images on the card base and added patterned paper, stitching, a stamped sentiment and a few embellishments. I like it because it reminds me of all of the good things that are blooming in my yard...
...visually, I love this time of the year! Nothing beats green.. all of that lush color & new growth.

So now its time to check out the other Go-to Gal's blogs! Stop by and say hi to Betsy, Jennifer, Julie, KimTeri

Thanks for visiting here:) Happy Wednesday!

Supplies Used: (8x8 Paper Pad, Printed Chip Shapes, Miscellaney, Stamp Set: 5 & Dime collection) October Afternoon, (bling) Zva Creative, sentiment & chalk ink (A Muse Studio), other (thread & twine)

Great card, Windy. I love this OA collection! Can I ask where you found those buttons? They remind me of my old button box. Would love to know where I can find them...
