Get Creative - July card challenge

Hello bloggy neighbourhood!

I have disappeared lately, but between business trips and weekends with crops and crazy hours working in front of the computer when I am in Athens... I really don't have the time to do something! But I'm planning a relaxed weekend and I'll come by your blogs to see your creations!

So... it's the 5th of the month, so time for a card challenge over at Get Creative! Because of summer holidays, for July and August we will only have one challenge for layouts and one for cards (although my summer holidays are not until September...

But before I continue with the challenge, I want to give you some amazing news... We have a new member for the card design team, one of the best crafters I have had the chance to know, Puccarina!!! Every month we have been admiring her participations over at Get Creative (and not only that, have you seen her felt creations? Simply amazing!!!) and I was soooo so happy when I found that she was going to join us and inspire us every month with her creations!

So, back to the challenge now... For July we have the following sketch:

I loved the sketch as soon as I saw it! I had so many ideas! Finally I thought I should finally use my Sew Easy tools. To tell you the truth, I don't find it very convenient, but after the practice I did for this card, I think I'm going to use it more often. Oh, right, I have to show you my card as well, right? ;o)

It is funny you know... I have so many cards in a box and when I need a birthday card I don't have one and either I make one quickly... or I don't give a card (I know, I know, shame on me..). So I decided that from now on I should make mainly birthday cards so that I don't find myself in the same situation again.

And a close up to see the dimension I have given to the card:

Finally, the sponsor for this months is our own Channa Suitella with her new online store Crafts and pieces. The embellishments she offers are really gorgeous and this month's winner will get the following prize:

Aren't they gorgeous?

So, why don't you come by Get Creative for some amazing inspiration by the design team and to play along with us? We'll be waiting!
