Alisa's Challenge

Hi there and welcome to my blog.
The very talented Alisa Tilsner has set a build a card challenge for us.
Each day for 5 days she has given us an instruction.
Here they are

Instruction 1 - 18th March
Choose an image that you can stamp and cut out. It may be an outline stamp that you can colour, or a solid image to stamp in a colour.
Cut out your image and set aside for the moment.
Use colours in pink, yellow and green tones.

Here is how I interpreted it 

Instruction 2 - 19th March
Choose a card base colour in either pink, yellow or green tones. Being SU we want it all matchy matchy, so use one of the colours you've used in your stamped image.
The base can be any size you like, square or rectangle, landscape or portrait.
Adhere a piece of card to the card front. This panel should sit flush with the top and bottom of the card front. This will be the first layer, keep in mind there will be more layers. This piece of card should be pink, yellow or green, but also be different to the card base. 

Again what I did

Instruction 3 - 20th March
Take a piece of card in pink, yellow or green. Use the colour you haven't used yet. This piece of card will sit flush with the top of the card front, yet be smaller than your first layer. Set it aside for moment.
Cut 2 small banners - one in the same colour as your card base, the other from a pattern paper. These banners can be the same size or different sizes.
Adhere the two banners to the top left hand corner of the card you set aside.
Use dimensionals to adhere this panel to the card front, flush with the top.

My card is slowly coming along

Instruction 4 - 21st March
Using the same pattern paper as the banner, cut a strip and adhere it to the bottom of the card.
Using dimensionals, adhere your stamped image to the card front.

Instruction 5 - 22nd March
Time to finish our card.
Stamp a thin sentiment onto card and trim to suit. Adhere it either below your stamped image or where it best fits, with dimensionals.
Add a row of bling of your choice under the sentiment. Add any bling to the banners.

Thats it!! Here is my finished card :-)
