Hi, everybody, and happy May! It’s time for a new Clean and Simple challenge at Make It Crafty!
Thanks to everyone who entered the April “Sketch” CAS challenge! Our challenge for this month is SUMMER! While it doesn’t exactly feel like summer in my part of the world (and that’s totally OK), we’re inspired by sunny skies, warm temperatures, and the beach for this challenge!
I chose the “Hula Girl” digi for my card, and made a little wiggle accent to add a little hula dancing to the card:
I tried to capture the wiggle of the grass skirt in this picture:
My accent was made with some floral wire that I curled around a pen. I secured both ends to the card front and the back of the skirt. Normally, I would have used one of the pre-made springs, but the piece that I wanted to add the motion to was much smaller than those, and I didn’t want to have to trim the spring all the way down to fit.
I still have a few things to work through on the process of making my own wiggle spring, and I plan to put together a tutorial so show you how I made it very soon!
I’ll have a new card to share with you on the Make it Crafty inspiration blog on May 9th, and I’d love it if you stopped by to say hello!

Our challenge runs through the month of May, so there’s plenty of time to challenge yourself and play along with us! We can’t wait to see your entries!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a great start!
