...Crazy and Easy As 1,2,3 (C4C32)

Happy Saturday! It's time to get "crazy" again with the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, and Lynda Benden has been issuing some wonderful challenges for this month!  This week's challenge is Easy as 1, 2, 3...create a card or project that uses one ribbon, two brads or buttons, and three punches!  Our sponsor for this week is Club Anya & Friends again, so I chose to use the "WS-Gigi" image and a sentiment from "OA-Happy Day" from The Greeting Farm.  I stamped the image in Black Ink onto some PTI White Cardstock, then colored it with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the colored image up with some patterned  papers from the Joy Ride paper pad by Cosmo Cricket.  Now here is the rundown of my challenge elements:  one Black Ribbon; two Brads in the centers of the two flower accents; three punches used were the Trio Flower Punch, the Spiral Punch, and the Horizontal Slot Punch.  I added some piercing, stitching, and distressing to complete the card!  

Now let's see what the rest of the design team have created for you to peruse:
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and now it's your turn to create a card or project that incorporates the 1, 2, 3 Scheme to share it with us. Be sure to add your creation to Mister Linky back at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog post...we can't wait to see what you come up with! See you back here tomorrow with a card using images from My Favorite Things! Until then...
