Last Eleanor card! Did I mention I won the challenge again? It’s fun to win a stamp set just for making some cards.

I decorated the vase with flourishes from Everything Eleanor, added the bird and sponged the edges with a little blue ink. Popped up the center flower and voila, a cheerful card.

My fourth card for the Everything Eleanor challenge was inspired by this card. I changed it up a bit but kept the color combination, which I really like, except for the bird color, which I changed to Riding Hood Red. I added a little splatter with the Color Spritzer Tool, one of my favorite tools. Teeny Tiny Wishes—again—for the sentiment.

I got the idea for this third challenge card using Everything Eleanor from Splitcoaststampers. This is much easier than making a tiled card by cutting an image in squares. This technique is simply scoring the cardstock and stamping over it, lightly so as not to get ink in the grooves. For this card, I stamped the flourishes only. The flowers are cut out for a 3D effect. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
