Stampin' B's TGIF Challenge

A good and happy Thursday to you!! I'm so glad you dropped in. I hope you are ready for a new Stampin' B's DT Challenge, because I am the hostess this week, and I have a fun TGIF challenge for you.

"How exactly does one fit TGIF into a card or paper project?" you ask?? Well, that's an excellent question, and one that I plan to answer right about . . . NOW!!

I'm using
TGIF as a little acronym for the project recipe I'm challenging everyone to use:
T = be sure to add some texture
G = we've gotta see some green
I = include something iridescent
F = use anything that begins with the letter "F"--your choice!
But be sure to tell us what "
F" choice is!

So my sample card for this
TGIF challenge is a little something I cooked up for the DeNami Design Girlie Girl Challenge. You'll see texture in my stitching and lace, green in lots of places, iridescence in the butterfly sticker, and flowers for my letter "F" choice!
I was a first-time participant in the DeNami Girlie Girl Blog Hop earlier in the week and had a fabulous time! When I was making my card for the blog hop, I was torn between going the sophisticated-girlie route or the frilly-girlie route. In the end, sophistication won out for the blog hop, but frilly has been on my mind ever since. Luckily, DeNami issued a girlie-girl challenge along with the blog hop, and I got to try out my frilly-girlie ideas after all! And all of my girlie ideas fit perfectly within my TGIF recipe. ;)

For this card, I concentrated on pink with green, another favorite combo! I stamped and colored the DeNami Rosebud Trio and punched it out with my decorative label punch from Stampin' Up. It was fun adding girlie decorative details: hot pink stitching, a short length of lace trim, a shiny dimensional butterfly sticker, a bit of sheer hot pink ribbon tied through a fancy paperclip (a birthday gift from my kids), some sparkly rhinestones, and a chipboard GROW sticker, which I thought was a particularly appropriate match to those pretty rosebuds!!
Well, thanks for stopping by to check out today's little slice of bliss! If you'd like to try your hand at this week's Stampin' B's Challenge, post your project on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

See you soon!
