Today's Hope You Can Cling To challenge on Splitcoast is to take inspiration from the pics posted (bikini top cakes) and make a card. The only requirement is that it has to have (gah!) pink in it. Yes, I may throw up before this month is out, and it's only the 2nd! Sigh.
I immediately thought of my "You know you're getting old when ..." stamps from GinaK, and just needed a "bra" to go with the sentiments. I've made one from scallop punches before, but this time I wanted to use pink felt. Lookie what I did:
This was HARD, people. One of the challenges with this craft is knowing what adhesive to use with different materials. I chose red sticky tape, which may or may not have been my best choice. I put it on the felt; ran the lace around the edge, clipping the curves as I went; put more tape on and folded the circle in half. Done. I did that twice. Done done. I used more red tape to hold the thing to the paper. About 5 pounds of tape - sure hope it stays stuck.
The pink satin ribbon is from my stash. The brad is SU (also stash ... like I'll use pink brads ...). The paper is Basic Grey euphoria (still out). Sentiments by GinaK.
That's it! I've only missed one HYCCT challenge so far - a round card, but it's the weekend, and by starting on a weekend, I think they've instilled false hope in us that we can keep up. There will be one challenge per day for the rest of the month. I should fall behind by tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
