then you find some feature of it which inspires you, and then you go off and make a card based on your own particular inspiration. link up your masterpiece to the fabulous caardvarks' flickr gallery by midnight, december 3rd, and then sit back and wait for the praise to start rollin' in!!! if you need a few ideas of different ways to go with this one, check out the caardvarks blog or the amazing dt cards already in the flickr gallery!
but first, do you want to see MY card for this challenge??! (say yes! say YES! plllllllllllllllllleeeeeeease say yes!!!) ok then, if you insist, i will show you:
ok, i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "lauren has uploaded the wrong card for this challenge! there's no CORN on there...and for pete's sake...it's BLUE!!!!!!" but no. this *is* the right card and it's blue for a reason: i didn't actually have any supplies that were particularly autumnal, much less corn-based. and being deeply ensconced in "monstaphase" i really wanted to make another funky monstacard. plus, i wanted to prove that you can really turn ANY challenge into something that is YOUR style, if you're willing to think a little...and maybe go out onna limb. the scalloppy rows (made using a fiskars border punch and lined up to overlap each other) are inspired by the ears of corn. the tannish/greenish background is inspired by the husks. and the raffia is self-explanatory!
so what creative spin will YOU put on this challenge?? can't wait to see everyone's cards!
