Hello there, and welcome! Today marks the beginning of a new challenge at Cards in Envy. We’re following up our “Hey Dude!” challenge with “Girls, Girls, Girls”. Cards for this challenge should be A2 sized (4.25″ x 5.5″) and be thin enough to be mailed at the standard postage rate – and be suitable to send to a girl of any age.
Even though Operation Write Home will stop accepting cards after August 1, 2015, I’m still working on filling up a box to send them in July. So I decided to make a “miss you” themed card that one of our military men or women could send home to their daughter. I think this little girl image is really cute. When she’s colored with dark hair, she reminds me of Boo from the movie “Monsters, Inc.” OK, so the eyes are really different, but the hair style is exactly the same. I used the current Splitcoaststampers.com sketch challenge for layout inspiration, turning the sketch on its side to give me more space for the sentiment. It felt good to use up a few scraps of some of my oldest Basic Grey papers for the banners.
So now it’s your turn! Check out the Cards in Envy site for all the challenge details and to see what the rest of the design team has made. Then share your girly creation(s) with us by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, June 14. We’d love to have you play along with us!
