Hippie Birthday

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Let's ring in the new year in style, lol! The Love To Craft Challenge Blog is launching a new challenge this morning and I'm stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #6 - January Anything Goes! I was commissioned by a co-worker to create a card for her hippie friend who loves music, flowers and colors, and this is what I came up with... a tie dyed, wild and funky easel card! I think this is a great way to start the new year! :D

These next few pics show all the fun elements I used, starting with the denim background paper. I have to admit my favorite one is the white denim pocket! Can't you just imagine wearing the white hip-hugger pants?! LOL

The inside/easel bottom features a stenciled tie dye pattern created with several colors of distress ink. And how about that peace sign charm. I'm really loving how this turned out! My co-worker's friend loved it too! :D

Happy to enter this very colorful (lol) easel card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Paper Accents 120# Kraft cardstock, GKD Navy and Sweet Corn cardstock; Marco's White Antique Linen cardstock; scraps of pink and teal cardstock; scraps of GKD Tomato Soup, Fresh Asparagus and Red Hot cardstock; scrap of denim paper
