For the first Make it Monday challenge of the new year, Nichole has decided to issue an A la Carte challenge. She has listed on her blog links to all of the previous 46 challenges so that you can try any technique you would like. I chose to use the rock and roll technique and the ribbon pleating technique on my card. For the main panel, I tried something that I have wanted to do for awhile. I used one of the labels from Label Basics and dressed it up using Chevron Strips. I really like the black and white look and the chevron strips are much easier to line up than I would have thought! I then used Rosie Posie to add the pink and yellow flowers and a leaf to my label. I tucked in another label from Label Basics and stamped it with the words "vintage style" from Button Boutique just for fun. I added a die cut "you" to the top of my label and finished off the front of the card with the ribbon pleating.
For the inside of the card I used the sentiment "give me a reason to smile" from Wonderful Words Additions. Head on over to Nichole's blog and play along if you like. Thanks for stopping by!
