Challenge #19 - The Paper Funday Challenges's the 1st of July ans that means today starts a new month and a new challenge at The Paper Funday Challenges.  The theme this month is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist: The Great Outdoors and the fantastic sponsor is Vectoria Designs.

I had the pleasure of creating my design team project with components found in the Botanical Junk Journal Kit.  This kit has many wonderful elements used in creating journals.  I'm not a Journal creator but a card maker, so I put my thinking cap on and created this card using ephemera, tags and pages from the kit.

In addition, I added ephemera and sentiment strips from Tim Holtz.  The Book-A-Trix form was die cut using a die I had in my stash (that I completely forgot about).  I made certain to add dimension to the project, inked around the edges of everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and lastly, spritzed the project with Shimmer Spray. 

I surprised myself with this project; it was daunting and out of my comfort zone but in the end, I can say I had fun creating this card.  

I hope you'll visit The Paper Funday Challenge Blog and join us this month with some of your projects.  Try something out of your comfort zone, you may surprise yourself!

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
