I woke up this morning to see that it was World Cardmaking Day and Pinkfresh was having a day of challenges!! I had other tasks and errands today, but I think I'll ignore all of them and make cards! The challenges are open until the 11th so I could (should) take my time - but it seems like a very good excuse to ignore the world today.
Challenge #1 from Pinkfresh is using "dies". That's an easy one! I have a gorgeous Pinkfresh die that I haven't used yet so I had no doubt what I was using.
Funny story though. I recently got this die thinking it could work for all seasons (at least that's how I justified it). I thought it could even be a poinsettia for Christmas. So what did Pinkfresh do? In their last release, they came out with an actual poinsettia version of this die. Bless their hearts. Don't they know that some of us have to at least pretend to be on a budget!
This card is quick and easy - the gorgeous die, some pretty paper and some texture. I did pop the "hugs" for interest but really it's all about the die.
On to challenge #2!
