Just a Couple of Cards....
Hey there!! A couple of cards today for several challenges. It's a dreary Washington afternoon (ie it is drizzling!!), but I'm thankful that we aren't having early snow like they are in the eastern part of the US!
My first card is for two challenges: CR84FN color challenge (yellow, grey & steel blue) and the Crafts Meow sketch challenge. I recently acquired a few Crafts Meow sets so this is my first time participating in their sketch challenge. For my card I used the CM set called Butterfly Kisses. I'm not, as a rule, a fan of silhouette images, but every time I saw someone make a card using the sweet little fairy girl from the set my desire to get the set grew. Finally a week or so a go I took the plunge and bought it. I stamped the fairy in grey ink on some My Mind's Eye Sunshine paper and then added the pearl to the center of the flower and some Diamond Stickles to her wing. I added the scalloped edges, the ribbon and flower and I was done.
The second card is for the current Moxie Fab challenge: Textured to Perfection. I recently was introduced to Linda, the Funkie Junkie, through my sweet friend, Sue's blog. I checked out Linda's blog and saw that she had an Etsy store and that she carried burlap and in several colors, too! I have wanted to get some burlap for the longest time, so I bought some from her recently. I used a piece on my card. The butterfly is from a Pink Paislee ephemera pack and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things. Not a ton of texture, but you know... less is more!
