Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! If you're in the States, then you're celebrating Labor Day today and extending your weekend just a bit longer! I'm stoked to share my Love To Scrap Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #85 - Flower Power! Our wonderful sponsors this time are Little Blue Button StampsBugaboo Digi Stamps, and Pickled Potpourri, so come on over and play with us for a chance to win an awesome prize!

I chose the absolutely adorable 'Shake Those Tail Feathers' digital image from Pickled Potpourri for my Celebrate card. This image is versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions. My granddaughter is trying out for her middle school cheer team, and has made the first cut. I'm anticipating (as is my daughter) that she'll make the team, so this card is for her! UPDATE: She made the team! Yay! ;)

I used a primarily red, orange and yellow color palette, played with some of my favorite stitched dies and my Crystal Drops, and added my signature big bow. And this was my first time using Ranger distress crayons and OMG, I think I'm in love all over again, lol! Lots of fun products used on this card! :D

I decorated the inside with some leftover strips of the colored cardstock used on the front, and layered the sentiment.

I'm happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, Tomato Soup and Sweet Corn cardstock; GKD Red Hot cardstock scraps
  • Stamps: Pickled Potpourri 'Shake Your Tail Feathers' digital image; Stampin' Up! Endless Birthday Wishes and Something To Say stamp sets
