Matchstick Challenge Take 1

I had mentioned before, that my friend Denise likes to challenge her crafty friends with different things to incorporate into our cards or crafts.
This time she supplied us with match sticks.
Everything on this card were goodies I had won from CanadianScrapperGirl from YouTube….all except the image, card base and the matchstick :)
I had a few ideas for this challenge, but this one won out ;)
I used the match stick as a post for the mailbox.
The matchsticks were pretty vibrant, so I coloured this one up with my Copics.
I coloured this cute Pure Innocence stamp with my coloured pencils and blended them with Gamsol.
I made this card when my friend and I went away. Debbie wanted to know how to make a easel card so thats what I did for this one :)
I am still loving banners (or fishtails) at the moment :) 
Why do they make me smile :)

I hope you all had a very Creative Day :)

Tracy :)


  1. This is a cool easel card. I am not so good at doing fancy folds but sure want to.

    Lovely card Tracey. I love that stamp...she is such a sweet girl and your design is great.
