Parks and Recreation VSN Mini

Yesterday was SCS's Mini VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) with fabulous challenges and lots of fun "chatting" in the threads, too. If you're not familiar with VSN, I highly recommend checking it out. The mini is held a month before the BIG event... it gets us ready for excited about the 2-day event, which will be held March 19-20. Each challenge host gives the details and then we have an hour to make a card because there's a new challenge each hour. This VSN theme is Parks and Recreation so the challenges will have something to do with that.

Kim's Concerts in the Park Challenge included two requirements - 

1. Something musical for the CONCERT like instruments, sheet music, singers

2. At least one of these elements for the PARK - bandshell, trees, blankets, snacks, benches, flag

I chose my man Elvis for the singer on my card (La La Land Singing Luka, to be specific) and tried to create the look of a bandshell, with the arched background and wood plank floor. I also used designer paper with trees on it.

It took 50 minutes to make this card.

Misti's Butterflies Challenge called for having at least one butterfly on the card.

It took 40 minutes to make this card.

Lee's Snowy Mountains Challenge was to make a card with mountains with snow on them. I wanted some glitter paper for my mountain tops -  but didn't have any (since I really dislike glitter) - so I used some wide glittery washi tape for my snowcaps.

It took 45 minutes to make this card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
