Friendly Challenge

Happy Monday y'all!

I hope you had a great weekend! I sure did! I had a very prodcutive weekend....been spending a lot of time in my craft room and created thirteen cards in a span of three days. It rarely happens and so glad it did :)

Today I have somehing fun to share. My creative babe, Jessy host a friendly challenge and asked a couple of her crafty friends (including me) to join. She sent us an inspiration photo and I was drawn to the colors and the patterns of the cushion pillows. Although these are not my usual favourite color combo but it's a defnitely a good challenge to make me step out of my comfort zone in a while.

At first I can't decide if I should create a CAS card or shabby chic one. Luckily Echo Park and October Afternoon paper came to my rescue and help me decide which style to go for. Phew...they sure save my day :) Though simple but I love the result. I hope you like it too.

I thought the sentiment fit the challenge perfectly. A friendship card for a friendly challenge :) I hope this inspires you and let's check out the rest of the particpants here.....
