Just For You Card using recent scrap kits from April 2020

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This card started out to be non-traditional colors Christmas card but quickly went a different direction as I switched color combinations several times. Crazy! The yellow, gold, beige, peach, and moss greens can be seen out of kits I put together and merge (and morphed)!

Just For You card:

Above: Orange/peach/beige/cream floral paper= Webster Pages; yellow and gray solid cardstocks = Astrobrights; green scrap is the reverse side of a print; peach scrap is actually a bright neon orange cardstock scrap that is bleached out by the scanner; moss green and gold metallic stripe decorative tape = I forget? Maybe Pink Paislee; gold metallic "Just For You" dazzle = Paper Wishes

Above: is the inspirational kit selected by CKC blog for April 2020 for everyone to try copying
Below: the color palette spectrum of the inspirational kit's dominant colors

Above: 1 of 2 pics I took of a mini kit I put together in mid-April for the CKC challenge

Below: using the CKC kit as my color muse, I pulled together a few leftovers from the CKC kit to merge with some new and old stuff that followed the guidelines of TGSB

Shout out to The Great Stash Bash started this year by Lisa H and Lori S which can be reached at both of their blogs. The April kit link-up has ended.

Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog (CKC) has a monthly link-up that has re-started for May, but I will link this posting to it.

On here, I will post the link of the final April posting which is about 'killing' your kit. If you've not encountered any of their posts, they have a very unique approach to scrapbooking through counterfeiting and forgeries. Don't panic and call the authorities however! This is about copy cats. How can you use items already in your stash that closely resemble/mimic what a vendor has assembled for selling?

I'll also share this card at 2 groups online:

a. PPPDTC group on Facebook

b. Mixed Media Creativity group on Facebook = mediums used other than cardstock are: floral sticker, gold metallic sentiment 'dazzle', the gold glitter French wired ribbon, the gold and moss green striped decorative tape
