Food for Thought Challenge!

This Sunday is not only Mother's Day here in the U.S., it's Eat What You Want Day! I think that's a fabulous coincidence. I think I'll drink coffee and eat chocolate all day long, then have margaritas and nachos for "Happy Hour", then BBQ with a nice red wine for dinner, and my new favorite, That's My Jam, for dessert.  If you haven't tried any of the delicious new "Core" ice creams by Ben & Jerry's, you should. Just don't blame me for any weight gain!

In honor of Eat What You Want Day, this week's challenge at the Outlawz Alcohol Marker Group is "Food for Thought". You should go visit my teammates' blogs to check out their work and should also play along with the challenge and share your project for a chance to win a prize from Ditzie Digi Design. They will be awarding three digis for first prize, two digis for second prize, and one digi for first!

So, without futher ado... Here's my card, which features the Cherry On Top digital stamp by Ditzie Digi Design.

It was resized in PhotoElements, printed out onto Neenah cardstock, then colored with Copic markers to match the patterned papers I had selected.

I fell back on one of my "go-to" card layouts because I felt like it. The patterned papers are by Graphic 45 (the red gingham), Jenny Bowlin (the cherry patterned paper), and Farmhouse (polka dots and solid).  Most of the papers' edges were sponged with Aged Mahogany Distress ink.  Rope-patterned Washi tape was used to separate the layers and hide the paper seam. The vertical die-cut, from Die-Namics, hides a bit of the patterned paper that I didn't want showing. I'm tricky like that. The flower die-cuts are also by Die-Namics. The cardfront was mounted on a pre-made A2 card from my stash!

Thanks for visiting today!

  3. Funny how we went for similar colours on this one - great minds and all that :) Love the choice of papers - really sets the beautifully coloured image off nicely!
