The Spoonful of Sugar challenge this week is a sketch, which I have posted below. The image I used is called Giving Shelter by Rachelle Anne Miller. I think this is one of the cutest images ever. I love that little snail. I colored the image with Prismas/mineral spirits and sponged some blue on the background. White backgrounds are starting to not look right to me for some reason - just on my own cards though - not anyone else's. I cut the image with my square Nesties and matted it with a scalloped square, also cut with my Nesties. I scallop punched the two horizontal pieces, but that got covered up quite a bit by all the stuff. I added a few more flowers than the sketch indicates, but that was so I could meet the requirements of the other challenge (see below). I guess you can't have too many flowers, right?
The CK/PCMB challenge this week is hosted by Barbara/lillyscrapper and is what I would call a recipe challenge. Our card was to have the following elements: A "critter" (I'm pretty sure a snail and a lady bug are both "critters"); 1, 3 or 5 flowers (I have five - not counting the flower in the image); at least one ribbon (I tied ribbon through the buttons); and at least one punch (I used two border punches, three retro flower punches and one MS butterfly punch).
