Sunday Card Challenge

It's our first ever card challenge at The Studio today! So without further ado, let's get right to the challenge. It's the 13th today so Amanda challenged us to use 13 of something on our creations. Let's see how the new card team handled this challenge!

To make my '13' for the challenge, I cut apart a sheet of rainbow patterned paper so that 13 bands of color remained visible. Then, inspired by this layout , I stitched the lines along the color bands down to the grid patterned base. I wanted to do 13 lines of stitching but that just didn't work out. Here's a close up of the stitching and clouds:

It is 14 degrees below zero here today - sooooo cold!  I wanted to use some bright, sunshine-y paper to make it feel just a little bit warmer.  it didn't make it any warmer outside, but those flowers and colors sure remind me of summer time!  Oh, I used 13 squares on my card.

This was a real challenge for me. My first card challenge and Amanda came up with such a hard one? I struggled to think about what I'd use 13 times in a card. It seems impossible right? I've then decided to use 13 patterned papers and use them to create everything....the cover, flowers, inside the card and even a "signature" besides. So, challenge accomplished, 13 patterned papers used and a lovely card - well at least I think its lovely! lol Hope you all like it and I'm looking forward to seeing your creations ;)

For my card I went with 13 images (digi stamps from Meljen's Stamps). This image is a freebie and can be found here.

Rossella used a number 13 plus 13 rhinestones to make a 13th anniversary card for her husband.

We are also joined today by Studio team members Amanda, Anna and Tessa with their takes on this week's card challenge.
