C4C267 Poppy Valentine

Good morning friends!

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog.  It's a new month so we have a new hostess (Peggy McCurry) and a new Guest Designer (Jennifer Dove at Dove Art Studios).   Welcome Jennifer!

Here is Peggy's Challenge:
"Happy New Year! Every year we have the opportunity to start with a clean slate. I don’t know about you but I like to keep things in my life simple. So let’s make today’s challenge “Clean and Simple”.

I don't do many Clean and Simple cards, and it was kind of fun!

I made a Valentine for my Mom and Dad to give Olivia, using Karen Burniston dies and her new clouds embossing folder. I lightly sponged pink and orange on the clouds so it wasn't quite as stark.

Poppy has some glittered feathers, beak and heart, and black Glitter Dots work perfectly for eyes.

Oh, and did I mention that she is on an Action Wobble? So she bobs around when the card is moved. Olivia is going to love that.

The words were done on the computer.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C267.
