World Card Making Day

World Card Making Day has finally arrived!! And Verve is joining in on the celebration with a challenge on Splitcoaststampers!! Click HERE to see all the details.

WCMD INFO:
-You do not need to use Verve Stamps for this challenge, ANY supplies will do!
-You have until midnight (EST) on Sunday the 4th to upload to be eligible for the prize drawings.
-Winners will be posted on Monday, October 5th, here in the Splitcoast Challenges Forum.
-We are partnering up with Operation Write Home! If you'd like to donate your World Card Making Day cards you can find the info on their website on where to send them (look on the left sidebar).


Michelle (sf9erfan) has issued an fabulously clever inspiration challenge. She figured since this is World Card Making Day, she would challenge stampers to use the flags found HERE as an inspiration. All you have to do is make a card inspired by one of the flags, and upload it to the Verve thread found HERE, and include the keywords WCMD09E. Be sure to let us know which flag inspired you too.

Now here's the really super part!! Julee has wonderful prizes for the challenge participants!!
There will be 4 prize packages -2 will have the Verve sets Snow Wonderful and Snowflake Splendor and 2 will have the sets Enjoy and Bountiful backgrounds. How awesome is that?!?!?!

Now, about my card. I'm a very *in the box* thinker. So, when I saw this image from the Verve set Swan Song, I thought swan. Until, of course, Julee made a card (found HERE), showing that the swan can be a peacock too. So, I colored my *peacock* with Spica pens and layered it once. The sentiment is from the set Star Struck (Verve), and the sketch is Mojo Monday's Sketch 106.

The flowers were all made with Martha Stewart Punches, and the leaves are a Sizzix die. The lovely paper is Dewfrost (Memory Box), and the corner punches and the panel trio treatments were all made with a Fiskars Corner embosser/punch.

That about sums up my card!

All of your cards are beautiful! I love those flowers. In fact, I've gone to the store to buy the Martha Stewart punches but I can't figure out which punches you use. Is it the hydrangea punch, because your flowers look more symmetrical than that punch does!
