Open-Minded Challenge #31

Good morning!! Getting into the flow of things again! It is so good to be crafting again! I missed it! I was starting to think that I would never have time again!!

This morning you will find the Winner and DT Favorites posted at Open-Minded Crafting Fun for Challenge #30 - Up In The Air. It is so fun to see all the winners and DT Favorites! And so hard to pick a favorite.. Everyone is so extremely talented!!

At noon you will find the midway post for Challenge #31 - Luck. Be sure to come back and check out the amazing DT projects for the midway post. The DT are amazing! I always love seeing what they are going to make! I hope you will join in with us for this challenge! Our wonderful sponsors are:



I love our sponsors so much! They are so generous to sponsor our challenges! Be sure to visit them and spread the love! They deserve it! What would do without them!! They make our crafts so wonderful with their fantastic images!!

Alright...here is my project for "Luck"!









I have used the image Tinkles from our wonderful sponsor Make It Crafty! I colored her up with my Copic Markers and I did a little bit of layering on her. I added a bit of gold glitter around the edges of the bells. I also used some Opaque White to do some highlights on her. I used all scraps for this card. Still trying hard to use my scraps and get through some this year. The circle die is a My Favorite Thing stitched circle. I added some dry embossing to the two different shades of green strips across the middle. The clover is a Sizzix die that I cut three times with two shades of green and a clover patterned paper scrap in my scrap box. The tag is also a Sizzix die. The sentiment, 'Good Luck', is from Paper Smooches. I stamped it three times on the little tag and it is hidden behind the circle. I took a photo of the front with it tucked in and then one with it pulled out. I added a bit of white sparkle fiber and a horseshoe charm at the top and then added some green gems. She is a fun little elf! I had a blast coloring her up green to match the papers and the luck theme!

  • Hair: YR12, YR15, YR14, YR18, E19
  • Mouth: R56
  • Cheeks: R22
