I'm back with another challenge card. I created this one for three different challenges - Roses on Paper, Just Magnolia and Stampin' for the Weekend.
For the Roses on Paper challenge, you must follow the challenge theme AND use a Magnolia, Rachelle Anne Miller, Sarah Kay, The Greeting Farm or Alota image. The current theme is to use flowers and to combine the ROP challenge with any other challenge. I chose Relaxing Tilda for the image, and there are flowers in the image itself, my DP and as embellishments on the card. And obviously, I met the requirement to combine challenges with the other two that I am doing with this one.
The Just Magnolia challenge theme this week is Summer. I don't have any Magnolia images with an obvious Summer theme, but I have a couple on my wish list. I think maybe this image is supposed to really be Spring since Tilda is wearing her little jacket, but I decided that maybe where Tilda lives it isn't 95 degrees with a heat index of 105 like it is here. :) I thought the image was perfect for the summer quote that I found. I printed the quote on my computer and cut it out with my Nesties. The quote, by Sir John Lubbock, says "To lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."
The final challenge for this card is Stampin' for the Weekend. This is the third week for this new challenge blog and I've really been enjoying their challenges. So far they've been a little different than some of the other blogs. The challenge theme for this week is Rock n Roll 60's. When I first saw the title I kind of panicked because I wasn't quite sure what it was going to be, but it turned out fine. They provided three song titles from the 1960's and we were to use one of them as our inspiration. We were only to consider the title and not the lyrics. The three songs provided were:
"Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harem
"Time of the Season" by The Zombies
"Please Mr. Postman" by the Marvellettes
The song I chose for my inspiration is "Time of the Season" which by the way is one of my favorite songs of all time - even though I was only four when it was popular. I love 1960's songs. The tie-in - obviously - is the summer theme of my card. I did consider "Whiter Shade of Pale" (another of my favorite songs) because I'm working on some all white cards for a swap I'm in, but I wouldn't have been able to combine that with the Just Magnolia challenge and I posted an all white card not too long ago anyway which was similar to the one I'm working on.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll check out the other great creations on these awesome blogs. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
