DTC #56 Anything but a card and designer search

Hello and a good morning to all of you! I am so happy you are visiting me here today!!

Before I get to my project I want to let you all know that Digital Tuesday Challenge is looking for one designer to be part of our team. Click on the Digital Tuesday link below for all the details.

Our challenge this week at Digital Tuesday is

"Anything but a card"

chosen by the lovely Lora. I most always make cards so this was challenging for me. After lots of thoughts I remembered that I always wanted to try one of these "Faux leather wallets", so here was my chance.

Funny when I showed it to my husband his reply was "is this leather?" LOL
I found the instructions in the resource section on SCS. Here's a quick link in case anyone is interested.



I very much followed the directions from SCS, just used different papers and embellishments. And added an image as a focal point.

The cute image is from our sponsors this week, Some Odd Girl, the owner generously let us design team members choose one of their images.
Be sure to go check out their store, they have lots of unique images. I had so much fun coloring this one, of course sunflowers are one of my favorite kind of flowers.

Below you can see the wallet open and also a top view.



I am going to put some money in here and give it to my niece who just turned 12. I think she will love it.

My project also fits the challenge at "Dare U 2 digistamp" with the theme "Flowers", and the challenge at "A spoon full of sugar" with the theme "3D somethings" so I will enter it there too.

Thanks so much again for stopping by my blog today, hope'll find some time to create something and maybe you can join us at the digital tuesday challenge and create anything but a card using a digi, for a chance to win a prize from "Some Odd Girl".

Have a fantastic day!!

Oh, Ellie, this is adorable. She is going to love it (well, and the $ too, lol) This is such a fun image and what a great idea to add them to the front of your wallet. Makes the packaging as cheerful as the gift will be :o)
