WT316 & CDACsc20

DSCF0289

For today’s SCS WT316 challenge, we were to use flowers!  That’s an easy one!  I actually did two!

The first one is an Easter card using a digi from Arielle; if you are a member of Crafters Digital Art Center, you can get it free!  I used her sketch as well:

CDACsc20 (1)

And here’s my card:

I struggled a little with the sketch—I love it, but I think I just didn’t have the right proportions, and my yellow Copic selection is limited!    My next card is a Christmas card, and I intended to make it for the jingle belles Holly & Ivy challenge, but I was too late!  I still am happy with it, it was a nice, easy CAS card to make:

The paper did most of the work!  I did cut out a corner poinsettia and popped it up on dimensionals so that the sentiment could slide underneath:

Another one for my stash!   I don’t have any baby pix to share today, but hopefully I’ll take some later on after her nap.  Thanks for visiting today!  And I hit 300 subscribers, so I will be having some BLOG CANDY next week!  Stay tuned!

Ugh.... from Spring to Christmas in 2 cards! I guess there IS snow on the ground... maybe it's Springmas?

Both are fabulous, LeAnne!

Fabulous cards, LeAnne! I love the Christmas DSP! And what a lovely layout and texture on your first card!

Gorgeous cards, as always LeAnne! I love the bright colors and texture in the first card. I am wowed at your paper snip, cutting prowess in the second. Lol! Wow!! That paper is gorgeous and I loooove how you added the sentiment under the flower. Very pretty! :)

Your cards are wonderful. Hard to look at Christmas today. I want spring. Still it is wonderful.

Fabulous daffodil card! I am hoping that a few of my daffodils will be in bloom soon, if not, I'll have to make a card like yours! Too soon for me to think about Christmas.... but your card is pretty, even if I don't want to think about it.

What wonderful cards, LeAnne! I love Arielle's pretty flower image on the first one and I love the way you cut the poinsettia on the second card!

Love the embossing of the striped paper and the colors are wonderful...great design too. Sure need this kind of card since we seem to be stuck in winter in the NW. Always inspiring to see your cards!

Love the orange & yellow color combo, and the dimension on the poinsettia looks awesome!
