...Farm Fresh Gothic Inspiration


It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week we have...An Inspiration Challenge!  We were to create a card using the picture above as our inspiration.  This is our new little Creeper, "Thursday"...isn't she just a tough little booger?!?  LOL!  She will be available to purchase TOMORROW, but one lucky commenter at the TGF Blog will receive the image for FREE!  Be sure to hop over there and show some love to the other Farmers.  In addition to the TGF releases, Club Anya & Friends are also sharing sample using this gorgeous Goth girl, so be sure to leave a comment there for a chance to win "Thursday".

Now let's see what the Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:
I also made a card the other day using the new "In The Spotlight" Scrapbook Kit from TGF that I'd like to share with you all.  I just love the versatility of this kit.  I don't scrapbook much, but I can use the components to create a card instead.  I decided to showcase the large butterfly and index card elements on this card.  I paired them with some Bella Rose Designer Series Paper from SU, then added a Kiwi Satin Ribbon pleat over the patterned paper.  Some piercing, Brads, and Rhinestones complete the card.
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the TGF Blog for the official challenge rules and another chance to win this awesome image!  I'll be away this weekend trying to get ahead on some more stamping projects, but I've scheduled some goodies for you while I'm gone!  I'll see you back here tomorrow for another C4C Challenge. Until then...

Okay, I give up. My husband is seriously going to kill me after I buy all of these new stamps. This is FABULOUS! I love the colors and this fantastic layout. I really love how you use craft stock and mix in DP instead of having dp always be the focal paper. This layout is just perfect for her. :D

I was so excited about your Thursday card I forgot to tell you how much I liked your card with the TGF SB kit. Love the pleated ribbon. It's nice to see that you can use the kit for cards in addition to SB pages. Beautiful.
