PTI July Blog Hop, Moxie Fab Birthday Celebration, & Seize the Birthday
Hello! I'm so glad to finally have a card to post for PTI's July Blog Hop. I really struggled with this Blog Hop...not because the color combinations aren't fantastic...just because my crafting has been uh...blah. I can't even tell you how many attempts I've thrown away this week. I'm not sure why, but everything just seems to be off. So after nothing worked out quite right, I was thinking about cards that I made over the last couple weeks that I really enjoyed and I remembered this one. I decided to use another one of the templates Nichole had shared to make this lion card.
Birthday Card Challenge at Moxie Fab World and the Anything Goes Challenge at Seize the Birthday. One more thing: This shape card wouldn't stand on it's own at first, so I had to trim the mane on the back side of the card base making the bottom two scallops more flat than rounded. Really there was no science to it. I just kept trimming away until the card stood straight.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I did manage to salvage a couple more cards, but this was the only photo that I could make work. Hopefully I'll have a chance to try again, I'm just waiting for the sun to move, and then maybe I'll be back...depends on how long nap time lasts. :)
