March Nacho Average Sketch Challenge-Peaceful Poppies and Bird Ballad DSP

Nacho Average Challenge

My Upline, Tammy Fite, posted this sketch challenge for her Nacho Average downline members for March. 

I usually don't go searching for online challenges to participate in, but this one coming from my Upline, I knew I wanted to participate.

It can often help to have a challenge to get the creative juices flowing.

Here are the cards I came up for this challenge.

I wanted to use the scraps of paper I had on my work table.

As it happened, I had pieces of Peaceful Poppies and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper left over from various projects.

I decided to let the DSP do the heavy lifting for me!

Nacho Challenge

I really like the bright poppy watercolor design found in Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Spring just jumps off the paper!

For this card, I simply cut a piece of the DSP into a square using the Big Shot and one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I then made a Flirty Flamingo frame to go around it by nesting two of the dies and popping it up with Mini Dimensionals.

I embossed the Old Olive piece using the Big Shot and Subtles Embossing Folder.

The greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Rich Razzleberry using the Stamparatus.

I added some Rich Razzleberry enamel dots out of my stash to complete.

Nacho ChallengeHere's another take on the sketch I made using scraps of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

This paper just makes me smile!

I used the Stitched Shapes and Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the paper for easy layering.

Then, the pieces left over from the card above where used to create this card.

One sketch morphed into three cards!

Easy, peasy!
