Creative Knockouts: Charmed Life

 It's Thursday which means that Creative Knockouts has a brand new challenge and a brand new sponsor! I always get so excited when I get to showcase new challenges and this one was a bit of a challenge for me because it's called A Charmed Life which means that you have to incorporate a charm on your card somewhere. Now this might not be much of a challenge for many of you, but for me it was. I have a cute little box sitting on my desk with a number of beautiful charms in them...yet I don't ever think to put them on a card...so here we are, outside of my comfort zone slightly, but I still managed to come up with a great little card. Isn't it great when you overcome a challenge! 


It's cute right?! See that adorable little charm on the bottom? Yep, I was going to put it across, you know dangling with that heart strip, but it just did not fit right so there it is making my triangle :) 

The card was pulled together using a great image from this week's Sponsor, Polkadoodles Crafting. Polkadoodles is a great online store which features stamps, dies, fabric, ribbons, and of course tons of adorable printable's so make sure to head on over and take a look. This specific image is called Winnie-MMM Chocolate

I also decided to use my favorite monthly paper line called "Cats & Bats" from CTMH. This line is meant for Halloween (if you couldn't tell by the name) but it works awesome for so many other occasions. You can check out my coffee and cards workshop found here for more inspiration and of course a video tutorial. I also pulled out my "Better Together" Complements, also from CTMH. These complements feature really pretty stickers, white chipboard die cuts, and of course lots of shiny silver and foil, you really can't get much better for under $7.00.

One winner will then be chosen at the end of the week and they will receive a voucher for Polkadoodles store where they can pick up some awesome goodies.
