When Ike's Art World Challenges blog offered this freebie on their blog (called Lamp Post Diva) it reminded me of this story, and I couldn't help but make a card. Sometimes you have to take inspiration wherever it rears its head. LOL
I used some lovely Prima paper from their "Tagged" collection, a gift from Betty of Simply Betty Digital Stamps. I loved the patterns on the paper so much I decided to go with a color-blocking design, something I haven't done often. A peek in my embellishment box netted me the strips of tiny jewels, a couple Skittles and the swirly clips my card needed to embellish it. And a rifle through my ribbon container landed me a few snippets of ribbon and fiber to wrap around some of the small blocks. Everything but the new digi came from my stash, the whole card took me twelve minutes from start to finish, and I was well done before hubby got home from work today!
So, Ike's Art World Challenges has a great challenge running now: Make Us Laugh, and I believe my card qualifies. Check out the challenge blog-even if you don't play in it, you'll go away with a smile on your face!
