Hello!

Today we are very excited to be introducing our first monthly challenge!

Each month we will be bringing you an inspiration photo based on a particular theme.

This month’s theme is: From the Craft Room: Lime Lemonade

From the craft Room

To get you started, I made a card based on this photo:

From the Craft Room challenge

I used the Giraffe image from our Geometric Menagerie set, and embossed it in white on water color paper. Next I used Peerless water colors to add some yellow and green to the Giraffes. I trimmed them, and adhered them over a die cut circle. The leaves were doodled using a fine tip Gray marker, trimmed and adhered behind the circle. Since I made this card for a friend of mine who just had twin boys, I had to make a custom greeting using a Dymo label maker (I just realized that in my hurry I forgot the “o” in welcome! Good thing I can simply make another label :) ).
