Krafty Girl Challenge #140

Happy weekend, my friends! It's time for a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog. Here is my card for the challenge.

The hostess this week is Kerry and the challenge theme is "Out of the Box Technique." Use the out of the box cutting technique on your projects and enter for a chance to win the Guitar Boy from Smells Like Teen Spirit set that Kerry used on her card!

I used the sweet Abigail Apple for my card. She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a smaller die from the same die set. You can find a out of frame die cutting tutorial that I made here. =)

The patterned paper is from Paper Cottage 6x6 Paper Pad by BasicGrey and the sentiment is from Thank You Trinkets set.

This week's Frugal Friday Specials are Red Queen, Jeannie, Punkin Family, Back to School Katie, Sympathy Sentiments and Lots of Love 1 set. They are all put on sale for 30% - 50% off, so don't forget to check them out!

That's all I have. Don't forget to go and check out what the other Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests came up with for this challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
