Challenge: Five


Happy Cinco De Mayo, and happy new challenge day! We’re all about the #5 this week- use five of something, only use five things, or be inspired by the number! Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. Join the fun by creating a project this week – and for your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge here. All the supplies I used are available in their (newly re-designed!) shop as well.


I took my five favorite bright + happy colors of distress and created the background for my card. I also used my picked raspberry distress to create my flowers.


I just love how simple and fun this card was to make – and you know I always love blending up a good distress background. The Hazel & Ruby tape I used brings it all together into a fun card for a crafty friend.


Speaking of blending and distressing – my new class starts soon! If you want more information or to sign up – you can check it out here.

Happy Crafting!
