Flowers for your Birthday


Took a trip to my local stamp store today and bought a number of items I just couldn't live another day without :)  The flowers on this card are from Spellbinders, sentiment from Papermania and he squiggle border from Taylored Expressions.  I colored the flowers with my Zig marker, just love these markers.

I am entering my card into 2 challenges this week:

Casology - Loud
Case This Sketch - see the sketch below


Thanks for stopping by today :)

Muse Challenge #217


I made this cute, little box card for this week's challenge at the Muse Card Club.  This is my first attempt at making a box card and I'm happy with the result.  I found a YouTube video by Sandi McIver showing how to make a rectangle pop up box using 8 1/2 X 11 paper, wrote down the instructions and Viola!! a card was born :)

Here's the adorable Muse card by Kim Heggins:


I know I will be making many more of these boxes, they are all that and a bag of chips :)

Thanks for stopping by today, it's a good day to be Happy!

When I look at the pretty woman dancing outside it makes me happy; I love this set from Stampin' Up. I put Zig makers to paper, daubed green and blue ink for the grass and sky and added little flowers for my card that I'm submitting to Freshly Made Sketches for this week's challenge.

Here's the sketch:
So happy you stopped by today :)

Henna Elements - turquoise, lime and navy

 

There is a color challenge this week at Just Us Girls; the colors are turquoise, lime and navy.  Although the card base looks black in this photo, it is navy.  As I didn't have lime green ink I used wild wasabi ink for the little leaves.  The large flowers are turquoise and the small flowers are navy.  The stamp set is Henna Elements by Altenew.


Glad you stopped by today and a beautiful Spring day it is :)

Fusion - Navy Patterns


This card was made focusing on the sketch  at Fusion Card Challenge and also using navy as the prominent color.  The rose paper is from My Favorite things and I just love it.  The paper comes in bright and pastel colors; the blue goes so well with yellow, don't you think?

Here is the inspiration photo from Fusion:
So happy you stopped by today :)
