Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge Back To Basics





Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays! This time the challenge is Back To Basics. You cannot use any Cricut cuts and you must include an "old school" embellishment such as stickers. I LOVE to create cards with stickers. There are so many cute ones out there and we sometimes forget how we used to do things before the Cricut. For my card I used a sticker of this cute mouse image. I stuck it to a piece of white paper and trimmed around it and matted it. For the top of my card I punched a border. The scallop oval and oval are Fiskars punches that I highlighted with a white gel pen. I stamped the sentiment and pop dotted it to the card.

This week we are being sponsored by Zeni and the giveaway is a Cosmo Cricut Home Decor Lacing Set! I hope you will give this challenge a try and I can't wait to see what you create! Have a great day!

GiGi this is the cutest card EVER. I thought that was a stamp. I can't believe it is a sticker. They have a line of stamps with that cute little mouse too. You did such a great job with this and showed that stickers can still be stunning. WOW. Great colors you chose too..Excellent job my friend...LOL did I just say Exellent, that sounds so school teacherish, If I had a gold star I would put that on your blog too:)!!!

Hugs,
Stephanie
