Two challenges, two cards, same color theme, different looks! The first challenge is over at Paper Craft Planet; my bloggin/stampin’ buddy Tammy is sponsoring a 3D challenge….to make one of those paper flowers that are so popular right now! You can see all the details right here. I had a poofy flower already made, courtesy of another stampin’ buddy, Shawn, so I just made a CAS card on which to put it:
The background is SU’s A to Z, overstamped with the Very Vogue wheel; sentiment is from the hostess set, Of The Earth, and the Ruby Red DP is from a hostess pack. Now I am going backwards here, because actually the FIRST card I made (which is why I had the hostess set and hostess paper out) was this card, which is for a challenge at The Shabby Tearoom (don’t you love that name!) which was to use stitching on your card:
Now this is supposed to be a spring challenge---I guess these colors are not really springy, but they fit the mood of the gray day we are having, plus I wanted a sample of a card made with the Square Scallop Die Cut. There is lots of stitching goin’ on here, even on the inside:
The little sparrow was stamped in Versamark, then daubed with a blend of Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red pastel chalks….I still had them on my desk from my SB page! (But I finally cleaned everything up!!)
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for visiting!
