Hello my friends!!  Today it's time for another Mystery Monday challenge and I'm the host.  First off I wanted to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our Farm Fresh Face guest Lisa G.  She's one of TGF's biggest fans and if you haven't visited her blog you must!!

Happy Birthday Lisa!! May today be as wonderful as you are friend!!

For this week's Farm Fresh MM challenge card I chose Gio's fun and fabulous card featuring Oliver & Amelia (Just for You set).  I loved the simple layout with the fun paper the hearts and the lovely colors.

Now remember you can either case the card or use it as inpiration for your card or project.  To see what the DT has come up with for this week's challenge please visit the FFC blog, here

I chose to case Gio's wonderful card.  I love the layout and the elements she used.  I thought making a SISTER card featuring a younger & older sister would be fun.  First I had to choose my images.  I picked Creeper Sasha and WS Summer.  Thought these two would make the perfect sister combo.  I masked Sasha and tried to stamp Summer as close to her as possible so it would look like they were holding hands. 
Next I had to choose the paper to compliment these two girls.  One of my favorite combos is light green and turquoise. I picked Bo Bunny's Back to Basics Flower Child patterned papers (Harmony, Hippy & Free bird).  The rest just came together using the same papers.  I used two 5-petal punches to make my swag banner on the top and the bottom.  I wasn't too sure of the color combo, but I think it turned out pretty cool.  Fun and bright.
Alright, ready to play along?  Don't forget! You now have two ways to play! You can either CASE Gio's card OR you can use it as an inspiration piece. Meaning that you can make the same style of card, use the same colors, etc, just as long as we can tell that you got your ideas from the showcased card.

Here is a reminder of the rules:
  • Use ANY TGF image

  • You can either case the card or use it as an inspiration

  • Upload project to the TGF Galleria - Home > Farm Fresh Challenges 2011 > Mystery Mondays > GIO by Sunday, 12 pm CST

  • Winner will be randomly chosen to win a free single TGF image.

  • HAVE FUN!!

  • Mahalo for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!!
