Sooooo .... do you know what day it is? My favorite day of the week ... Friday! Made even more special by our Stuck on U Sketches reveal! This week it is the Die Cut team's time at bat and our lovely hostess, Nanne, has chosen "Fence" as our challenge. So, we want to see some die cut fences from you .. on any kind of projects .. be it a layout, card, mini or altered item. The sky is the limit. The only criteria is that it be a new project.
Well, I cheated a little on mine because I had this awesome die cut paper that I have been dying to use that is cut in the shape of a fence! How could I pass this one up, right?! So, I paired it with some yummy Webster's Pages (Country Estates) and a wedding photo (are you sick of them yet?) and away I went.
The Webster's paper has a gazebo on it and of course, I wanted for that to show because Maddie and Marcos were married under a gazebo. I split my fence and offset it to both sides. Then I added in some flowers, ribbon and a pearl flourish. I cut my favorite butterflies from Gypsy Wanderings and trimmed them with some flat-backed pearls. While I had the Gypsy on, I cut a photo mat from A Child's Year.
Here are a few close-ups:
This is another one of those pages that looks so much better IRL than on the computer monitor. It has a bit of a different look for me .. maybe it is the colors .. but I do like how it turned out. I was going to let this challenge pass without participating but I'm glad I changed my mind.
I hope that you, too, will pick up the paper and join in our challenge! If you haven't made it over to our site, please visit soon and see what all our designers have done! You will have 2 weeks to complete and upload your project. Also, please remember that you still have another week to complete last week's sketch challenge! Happy Crafting!
