Let's Go Wild!

It's time for another CCEE challenge! This week Let's Go Wild! We are creating wild cards ... as in shape.

If you aren't sure what a wild card is .... basically it is an odd shape. Instead of having parallel sides you will have sides that are on an angle.

I came across this cool trifold angle card on the lavenderthoughts blog and wanted to give it a try for my card today.  They have a pdf file that you can download to get all the measurements.




I watercolored my Rubbernecker (RN)coffee images with Stampin' Up's Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, and Espresso inks.  The coffee beans on the right margin are actually from a RN coffee bean background stamp; I just used a portion of it for my design today.  The sentiment reads:  "Friends like you are like a great cup of coffee; never too strong and just in time!"

Here are a couple close-up photos that I took this evening when I realized that my photo taken early in the day (natural light) doesn't quite show all the detail with the scalloped piercing.  I left the center panel blank so I can write my message there.




If you would like to play along all you have to do is create a card using the above challenge, and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword CCEE1102.  You can also see the designs my CCEE team mates---Cindy, Joanne, Frances, Tosha, and Shirley made on our CCEE blog.
