12 is the number!



I have another card for a couple of challenges to show you.....I am loving that I have finally created something. I love The Stamping Boutique and as they are one of the sponsors for one of my design teams I have fallen in love with the images, couldn't help myself and I also subscribe to their newsletter. For this week's challenge we are to use 12 of something:
Here is what they posted:

1. simply use the number 12 on your project in some way or other
2. use twelve elements on your project...no LESS and no MORE than twelve(DP, embellishments, CS, image, sentiment...all those things will count toward your twelve)
3. use twelve on 1 thing (twelve different DP's...lol..that would be fun to try ;-)....12 of the same embellishments, etc)

For my card, I have used their image "poppies" twelve times....twice in my focal image and then 10 times ( I counted ) re sized and layered around each other for my back ground. Very simple, but loving the way it turned out. 




Here is the inside-


 

Through The Stamping Boutique, I also found they are starting a new challenge blog at The Crafters Cafe where the theme is New Beginnings. I always think of Spring and flowers as a new beginning, so that was my inspiration.

My coloring was done with Tim Holtz distress inks Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint as well as Memento Summer Sky and a little sparkle from a stardust pen. I used the Spellbinders curvy rectangle die to cut out my main images.

Thanks for taking a look at my card and if you are in the mood to get some play time in, please check out these blog sites, you won't be sorry.
Thanks for the visit and please leave me a comment if you have time.

I would have thought that 12 would be way too busy -- but your card proves me wrong -- it's a great showcase for this challenge!
