MHKDesigns: January Challenge


Hello, everyone!  I am SUPER excited to announce that we are having our FIRST EVER challenge over at MHKDesigns!  We have a really pretty photo/color inspiration for you this month, and I can't wait to see what you create with it!  Take a peek at the inspiration...


Isn't that so pretty?!  I was inspired by the colors and the flowers in the photo for my creation.  I used a few different products from the MHKDesigns store, too.  Here's my completed card...


The roses on this card are from the Simple Rose set.  I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers, added a bit of glittery goodness, and the fussy cut them out before adding them to my card base.  I used shades of pink for the bloom and turquoise for the leaves.



The sentiment is from the Stencil in the Roses set.  I layered it onto some dark brown cardstock, then added a bit of faux stitching.  I think it looks SO PRETTY nestled into the roses and surrounded by fun embellies!


The patterned paper for the card base is from the Autumnal Accents Paper Pack.  I did more faux stitching to tie in the sentiment, as well as added some leaves, cheesecloth, a doily half (nearly covered, lol), some rhinestones, and fun buttons.  I really love the way this card turned out, and I hope you do, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)


Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you hop over to join in our monthly challenge at MHKDesigns!  There are prizes for each one, and you can use any products you'd like! :) Don't forget to leave some love with the other gals on this wonderful DT, too!


I'll be back soon with more creations using MHKDesigns products!

Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
