The Hatter Goes Gray

Looking for the {Virtual} Valentine's Day Blog Hop? Go here!

It's the 15th, and that means we have a new challenge over at the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge blog! Have you checked out this new challenge blog yet? It's super fun - twice a month we share an itinerary, and you have to make a card or project using at least three of the items on the list. Isn't that easy?

The itinerary this week has been created by the talented Juanita Gillen. Check it out:

1. Monochromatic
2. Movie or Book inspired
3. Buttons
4. The word “ FRIEND(S)” in your sentiment
5. Border Punch
6. Only one pattern paper
7. The color Red
8. No flowers
9. Swirls
10. Sparkle

On my card, I accomplished all sorts of stuff! My sketch is from this week's CPS Sketch, so that's one big plus in my book. I broke out my old Wonderland set from The Greeting Farm and colored the Hatter in a monochromatic scheme. That gave me two checks - movie/book inspired (I should get bonus points because it's a book and a movie!), and the color scheme. I used just one piece of patterned paper (that was hard), no flowers, chose paper with swirls, and added some sparkle in the top corner. And as an added extra, my patterned paper, although gray, has the teensiest hint of red - so check that one off too! My grand total for this itinerary is: 7 out of 10! Throw in the bonus because it's a book AND a movie and the fact that I used another challenge for the sketch and I am pleased as punch.

Be sure to head over to the Desert Island Crafters blog to see what the other creative geniuses have come up with, and to see all the deets on how to play along!
