Frilly & Funkie Layer it Up Challenge

Children’s Hour Pocket Card for Frilly & Funkie Layer it Up Challenge

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the latest Frilly & Funkie Challenge.  Our hostess this go round is the shabbylicious NANCY who invites us to Layer it Up by creating a shabby chic or vintage project that includes multiple layers.  We invite you to play along with us, and link your own Layer it Up project to the Frilly & Funkie Blog.  The winner will earn the honor to serve as Guest Designer at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner is so hard! So without further ado, let’s Layer it Up!

Hello Spring card for Frilly Funkie Layer it Up Challenge 01These cold, dreary winter months have me longing for spring, so I chose to work with the March papers from Graphic 45’s gorgeous Children’s Hour collection.  The glorious gold and green hues make my heart happy, and I can almost hear the dandelions pushing through the soil as I write.
