Challenge Cards

Happy Saturday to all!
I have a couple of cards to show you this evening that I did for two seperate challenges. The first is at Nina B's Crafting in Croatia where she has posted a card as our inspiration. I created a flower to put on this card and I found a tutorial for it at Julie's blog where she did a tutorial on this. It was lots of fun to make and so easy. Please check her site if you are interested in making one of these. I used some shabby chic dp which I am not sure of the maker and mounted it on SU pretty in pink. The leaves are stamped, colored with markers and cut out from a set by SU called Natural Beauty and the sentiment is from the set called Friends by Gina K designs. For accesories I used SU purely pomegranate ribbon, punches from SU and a brad from Making Memories.

I love this card and am very pleased with the way it came together.

Next I have found another challenge site that I want to try this week and it is Play Date Cafe. It is a color splash challenge using black, white and a splash of orange. I found these notebooks at a local craft store and decided to decorate it for this challenge and use it to jot down ideas for cards and projects. I love the way it turned out. I used my large classic round nesties and then stamped the top one with images from SU's Botanicals. My quote is a clear epoxy mounted over only orange cardstock and the flower image is also colored with only orange. I then used black and white ribbon scraps knotted to decorate my binder.


The last thing is a tag that I created for the challenge at Kard Krazy.
Using K&Co's Journey dp and SU Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla I pieced the paper with an embossed image. The butterfly and quote are form Butterfly Moments by Fourishes.



Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my creations. Have a Blessed and safe Sunday.
