Papercraft Star Challenge #114

Hey there!

How are you doing?  I hope you're having a good week.  My week, surprisingly, has been great.  It is crazy at work, but for some reason, it's not as frustrating or trying as usual.  Thank goodness for that!  I've even been able to come home at a decent enough hour and create some crafty stuff.  Go me! lol

It is Wednesday, which allows me to share another challenge project with you.  The theme this week at Papercraft Star is:

Keys & Locks

Since a lot of my crafty supplies are still packed away, and I'm only using what I absolutely need, I was without any kind of embellishment that even resembled a lock or key.  Good thing there's a Hobby Lobby right across the freeway.  I found just what I needed!

I'm not so happy with the photo of my card, but I am happy with it in real life.  It's a lot more bold, and the colors are fabulous together.  I love this digi image from the Wax Fruit Company.  I colored it with my Copics, and then cut it out and popped it up.  I wanted to make sure I had lots of texture on this simple sketch, to give it a little something extra.  I'm happy with my results.  And, here's another card for my stash!

I was also able to incorporate the following challenges in my card.

The Craft's Meow - September Sketch
Drunken Stampers #98 - Old Loves Die Hard (use stash older than six months - lace, papers & stamps)
Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge #126 - Tags

As usual, there are some gorgeous projects posted over at Papercraft Star.  I'm sure you'll be more than excited to see what I mean.  Why not head over there and check them out?

I'm off to work, then bible study and hopefully, I'll get to see some friends for dessert before heading back to the hotel. 

I'll be back soon with another something crafty.  Have a great day!

There are not enough tags out here, and I say MORE MORE MORE !!! Choosing yellow is an inspired choice, as it is such an attention grabber. Hugs Steph ! -J-
