Karen Burniston's March 2016 Designer Challenge

Good morning friends

Today's share is my first card for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge for March 2016 ... "Pull It". This was barely a challenge for me, as I love LOVE all three of the PULL CARDS and you know how much I like the Hanging Charm PULL Tab.

Below is my card in the closed position, ready to be put in the envelope. I love that you can change up the size and orientation of the HCPT so this one is a generous 5 x 7".

The card front is decorated with 3-d sticker embellishments and a pretty ECD flower die. I added a decorated egg sticker into the sweet basket from the Props 7 set, and used labels from the Katie Label Pivot set on either side of the HCPT.

If you stop the cutting pad short of the end of the pull tab, you can make it as long as you wish. This one is about 3/4" taller and I hand cut the corners to resemble a tag. The butterfly is from the Butterfly Accessory set and was brushed with Distress Stickles.

When you slide the pull tab, the lamb stands up and reveals the greeting underneath.

I recently purchased a couple of Els' Fitted Frame sets, so used two here for the back as well as the Flower Stage it Stencil and flourishes from the Oval Landscape Accordion. While it's not shown, I hand lettered a greeting on the cream oval before mailing the card.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Designer Challenge team came up with for this month's challenge - their blogs are all linked on the right. Karen Burniston will have her post on Wednesday.

I'll be back tomorrow with my second card for the challenge.
