Hello! Today I’m getting my As You See It Challenge card posted! A few days late but I’m getting closer to getting back on schedule! This one was tricky as Stampin’ Up! has retired our edgelits and edge punches so I had several ideas swirling around on how to create the “ruffled” look. Check out the other Design Team gals’ creations at the As You See It Challenge Blog HERE! Check out Amy’s use of the fringe scissors…she’s a total genius! As for me, I ended up using the Envelope Punch Board to make my zig zag/ric rac look. Watch for a video on that coming soon!
I also combined the sketch challenge from AYSI with the Color Throwdown Challenge for this week! I LOVE the color combination here – I normally never do browns with blacks or greys so this really was a challenge for me! A tricky detail to see is the white sequins I’ve used to really draw the eye to the sentiment. I’m obsessed with these Greetings Thinlits Dies! They are fantastic – wonderful size and great font!

This is an extra special week of the As You See It Challenge! I’m honored to be participating in Lola’s Challenge! My best friend, Tara, has a sweet niece named Lola who has been battling cancer for several years now. She just had a stem cell transplant and was in the ICU when we decided to do something special for her. Since she was in the ICU, we decided a virtual card shower would be better than sending her cards…possibly with bad germs!
So here’s the challenge…before Wednesday, October 21st make a card with something for Lola. Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness. Unicorns, fairies and pink are all things Lola loves! CLICK HERE to head on over to the As You See It Challenge site! Check out the other Design Team cards and PLEASE make and enter your own card for Lola! It’s so simple – you can pretty much put it anywhere online (as long as it’s public) and then just paste the link to enter your card! I set a goal of 100 cards for Lola so please share with everyone you know!
So that brings me to the card. I knew I wanted to include an image of one of Lola’s favorite things but I didn’t have any stamps with a unicorn or fairy…so I turned to the internet. A few searches and some really great things popped up! I chose this adorable Lucky Unicorn image from the Etsy shop 2CuteInk! Love it! I also found some great paper piecing files if you love to fussy cut or have a digital cutter. Or go with the fairy punch art route. If you want to play along, you can also use a FREE digi stamp too!
Besides the digi stamp and Copics I colored it with, everything is Stampin’ Up! I even used my new alphabet rotary stamp for the first time on this project! (Thanks for telling me I *had* to buy it, Amy!)
*I’ll be back with the supply list and measurements soon! 🙂
