The Good Sense Challenge

Happy World Card Making Day! If any day in the year is to encourage you it is today. hee hee  Flourishes has a fun filled challenge for you, here are the details: Join us this World Card Making Day for a little sensory overload when creating! We want you to tap those brain cells and think about how you could use all five senses to make a creation. Use vibrant color to be a "sight" for the eyes. Use something sweet to eat (food images or embellishments) to pique that sense of smell and taste. Use texture to satisfy that sense of touch or use something noisy - die cut machine, punches, eyelets, embossing to use your sense of hearing in the process. Link up your creation over on the Flourishes blog when you're done using our Inlinkz widget and you'll be in the running to win a fun-filled goody bag full of stamp sets, and goodies! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCWCMD12. So, use your senses and get those fingers inky. We can't wait to see what you create! You have until Tuesday, October 9th at 6PM to enter. We'll announce the winner on Wednesday October 10th!

For my creation I went with the texture and feel part of the challenge. This image is from the set called From the Desk of. I stamped my image out on classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. Colored with various copic collections:

My background is scored to look like a checker board and then added kaiser pearls to the center of each connecting line. Some white wrinkled ribbon in a bow to the corner and voila!
Be sure to check out the creations from:
Hope you get to play along with us on World Card Making Day!
