DCWV Stackaholic Challenge and FREE SVG

Happy Friday crafty friends! 
Whoo Hoo, hope you’re all doing well and getting ready for a weekend of summer crafty fun!  Today I am sharing a quick and cute card I created for the monthly DCWV Stackaholic challenge. This week DCWV participated in a blog hop and on their first day they used the new Honey Chic Stack. I was inspired by all the crafty goodness, so I pulled out that stack and went to work. This is what I came up with.

Here’s a look at my finished card. I followed the sketch provided and designed my own “circle overlay”. This card is really simple and easy. The background paper is from the Honey Chic DCWV Stack as is the pink striped paper. **ENABLER ALERT*** The stack is currently 9.99 at Joann’s online. Great time to take advantage and grab this stack Smile

This is the sketch we were to follow for the challenge.

From this shot you can see the EK Success mini corner punches I used. Also the Blue background with the frame is a “card” panel that comes just like that in the paper stack. All I did was add the letters for Smile to it. I added a metal star paper clip I had in my stash for a little extra visual interest. This goes well with the Honeycutz challenge for using something old. It has been sitting here in my craft room for no kidding....five to six years!!! You can also see in this shot that the paper has some parts of it that are pre-glittered. I love that about many of the DCWV stacks. Their papers will have some “strategically placed” glitter throughout the sheet. This makes for a very nice texture contrast in your projects and it isn’t “over-done”.

Here’s another view. You can see the nice Black Grosgrain ribbon I used here. Love May Arts Ribbon and seeing all the wonderful inspiration from the hop got my creative juices flowing. Oh, I almost forgot. The Smile letters are actually from a Quickutz Alphabet die set I have….Paige upper and lower case 2x2 dies. You use them with the Quickutz squeeze tool.

I used to enter a lot of challenge when I first started blogging, so I decided for the summer, I will float around and find some fun challenges to enter.
