Imagine, Imagine, Imagine


I had so much fun creating this birthday card. Bear with me as I explain how it fits several challenges. First, Bloggers Challenge this week is to make a birthday card. I used the map fold technique from Technique Junkies as the style of the card.
I used the sketch from the Mojo Monday challenge for the front of the card. (Turn the sketch one quarter turn to see my layout).
At Ink on My Fingers, Hels' Sunday challenge is to use mists. I used Perfect Pearl mists randomly sprayed on the inside of the card for color and shimmer.
At Inspiration Emporium the challenge is to go green. Green is John Lennon's color, don't you think?
Finally, the Stampsmith challenge is flip and fold -- to find interesting ways of incorporating folds in a project.
I love it when a series of challenges coordinate so well together.
Before I go, I want to wish  Lisa and Gerrie both a very happy birthday month!
