Blogger's Challenge

Morning everyone. Today is Blogger's Challenge day. Today's challenge is to pick a technique and make a project with it. I am not a technique kind of gal but I decided to give it a try anyway so off to SCS I was to find just the perfect technique.

What I decided to do is the Grid Technique. HERE is a link to the directions on SCS. I figured that since I needed to make a birthday card for Scott that I'd combine the two and here is what I came up with. Scott is 22 this year...I just couldn't decide what to use as a main image so I used Lovely As A Tree and went from there. I just scored the grid marks on my Confetti Vanilla card stock, then inked up my old Canvas background stamp, sponged some extra color around the edges and that became my main image. The rest...well, I wasn't feeling very inspired so it is very simple. I had to use some hardware though as ribbon would never do on Scott's card!

Overall, I like the grid technique but probably could have been a little more creative with the overall layout of the card.

If you'd like to check out what the other bloggers have done just check out the list in my side bar and you'll be all set to go!

Also, I told you that I'd let you know who won my blog candy from Sunday's post and that is...Blogger
