Gotcha Cornered!


Good morning! Hoping your weekend is getting off to a great start. So happy that you stopped by to see my DT sample for Our Creative Corner. I am hostess over there for the month of June and will be setting the challenges. This week, I am challenging you to give some special love to the corners of your card. Instead of neglecting them, fill them with stamps, die cuts, metal, bling, flowers or whatever makes you happy. I'm looking forward to seeing all the creative ways you all can fill up those corners.

I just might have gone a little overboard on filling up my corners, but I definitely made my point! I started with a base of Very Vanilla and Riding Hood Red, overlaid by a layer of Cosmo Cricket DP (too bad I always cover up the beauiful DP). Four of the beautful filagree cross from the Spellbinders Cross Collection (limited edition) die set were cut out of Riding Hood Red. Next up is a layer of Creamy Caramel cut with the largest of the Scallop Squares Nestabilities. A chocolate chip square was cut using the Spellbinders Fair Isles pendant. The little circle flower is a die from the Classic Frame Frameabilities set also by Spellbinders. The pearls are from Kaiser Kraft. The image is from our sponsor this week, The Prairie Fairy, and was colored with Copics. Roberta will give five digital images to the random winner of this week's challenge.

I hope to see your creation entered into our challenge this week at Our Creative Corner. Be sure to stop by the other design team members blogs to see their beautiful work too!
Thanks again for stopping by and for the wonderful comments you all leave. I'm sorry that I haven't had time to return the favor, but am hoping things slow down a bit for me in July after I return from vacation.
Blessings & hugs,
