An Arranged Birthday with a Supply Challenge

Our CCEE challenge today was to use the supplies that Charlene sent us.
  • designer paper by g.c.d. studios-rose colored glasses collection-light wallpaper
  • 2 chocolate brads

  • 1 pink gemstone brad

  • 1 chocolate oval and 2 white ovals

  • 1 pink curly label punched piece

  • 2 ribbons, pink & chocolate


  • Must use all or a portion of the designer paper

  • Must use either the pink gemstone, the chocolate brads or both

  • Must use a portion of or all of the ribbon, or both

  • Must use the oval punched shapes together or with the curly label

Now....before anyone gets buzzer happy on me, I did use the lovely designer paper but got a little.... ok... a lot! "sponge happy" and sponged on so much distress ink that it's hard to see the design! LOL

Seee, if you look reeeeally hard, you can see a little of the pattern behind the cut out flowers!

I love this new set, Arranged with Love, by Melanie Muenchinger from Gina K! It's colored with Copics and a few hightlights with a gel pen, then I took my craft knife and cut around each leaf, stem and flower! Then popped it up on the "heavily" distressed, scalloped paper and added the chocolate ribbon.

The sentiment (also from the set) is sponged and popped up also.

To see what the lovely paper actually looks like and to see how the other girls used their supplies, check out our CCEE blog.

Now, I'm off to start my week...more raspberries...more shearing...and maybe more yardwork!

Enjoy your day!

Thanks for stopping!
