My First Imagine Project

Here it is, my first Imagine project! This card was inspired by Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge, the Circle Blog Weekly Challenge, and the Circle MB Challenge.

Emma from My Creative Time asked us to create a card using Create A Critter and the color orange. The part I forgot about until I went to post it, is that it's supposed to be a 'shape' card. Oops, I guess I'll be sitting this week out. The weekly Circle Blog Challenge was to create a "girly" project using ribbons, bows, pink, etc. in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And finally, the Circle MB Challenge was to incorporate a circle into our design.

Here's what I came up with.

My card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The scallop circle is a stock shape from the Imagine sized at 5 inches. I used the Best Friends cartridge to add the sky background to the scallop. Originally my plan was to use the Papertrey Ink RGB codes on this card, but I decided to stick with the color palette from Best Friends instead.

The sheep is from Create A Critter and cut at 3 1/2 inches. I only used the base image and one layer. After I cut her fur, I placed it in my Xyron, upside down, so I could use the adhesive to add my glitter. I don't use my Xyron very much, but I love it for this purpose. The adhesive works perfectly to adhere the glitter.

I also cut the sun from CAC, at 1 1/2 inches (I think). I inked the edges with Stampin Up! Only Orange. Then to pull in the blue from the sky on the scalloped circle, I inked the edges of the base of my card with Tempting Turqouise from Stampin Up!

The buttons and twine are all Papertrey Ink and I thought the bows added an additional nice girly touch to the card. Her face is a stamp from Peachy Keen Critter faces. And then to add one more pink touch I decided to use some pink and white polka dot ribbon to make some bows to accessorize my sheep.

There you have it, a very simple, but sweet card. I hope you like it. For my first Imagine project I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back here soon!
