A Freestyle Thank You

Winnie & Walter is having a HUGE birthday bash with a bunch of awesome challenges! I have some cards I will be sharing this week as I play along with a few of the challenges. I am a HUGE fan of Winnie & Walter (no, I don't design for them... just absolutely love them), and I am excited to play along! You can find the full list of challenges for the birthday bash HERE.


I created this card with Gayatri's CAS + Freestyle Collage challenge in mind. I love this style and like to play with it now and then. I used the 'Thanks' sentiment from The Big, The Bold and You set. I fussy cut it freehand to add more to the collage feel. I used papers from the Serendipity 6x6 paper pad, with which I am, naturally, in love. For reals, though. It's AWESOME!

Thanks (detail)

I added a bit of DMC silver thread with the layers of paper pieces for some texture and a bit of sparkle. If you don't have these metallic threads in your stash, I STRONGLY urge you to buy a set! Seriously... they are totally a staple in my life now. I love them. Lots. The puffy heart stickers are from a great pack I picked up at Target from K&Company. I LOVE THEM!

It's good to be back to a traditional schedule after the holidays! I am looking forward to a fun year ahead!

Have a Happy!
