have the best Easter ever!

** 7/13/15 Top 5 at Crafty Cardmakers and more! **

Hi everyone! It's summer and it's hot, so let's break it up a bit! The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog Design Team is happy to bring you our "NO RULZ!" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by River City Rubber Works! Come hop with us for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!

As you hop, leave comments! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!

All of the LTSCB designers are creating Anything Goes inspiration projects for our blog hop. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a 'NO RULZ' project for extra entry/entries into the drawing! NO RULES for this challenge!

Okay, let me side-track for a minute to showcase my project! I chose the adorable Bunny & Chocolate Raisin digi for my somewhat clean and simple whimsical Easter card. River City Rubber Works has a wide variety of stamps, from serious to funny (and everything in between), and when I saw this one I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I have a warped sense of humor and thought it was great! ;)

I kept the overall design simple. I created a kraft card base that I scored lines on in the upper left and lower right corners for a little interest. I layered the image on brown Core-dinations cardstock that I tore to reveal the kraft core above and below the image. I wrapped some brown twine around the bottom of the image and tied it in a knot, and finished the front with some Rox gemstones.

I kept the inside simple as well, with a sentiment printed in brown.

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: The Paper Cut Brown Bag cardstock, Marco's Cream Antique Linen, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostaglic Collection, GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Dark Chocolate
  • Stamps: River City Rubber Works Bunny & Chocolate Raisin
  • Accessories: Martha Stewart score board, Studios Blackbird brown twine, Queen & Co. Chocolate Delight Rox gemstones, Fun Foam

All right, let's get back to the Blog Hop! Here are your stops:
