Muse Challenge #221

This card was made for challenge #221 at the Muse Card Club.  I used a piece of colorful patterned paper for my background and the Hello background die from Poppy Stamps.  It took me some time to remove all the letters from the die cut and paste them into place on the paper; I'm happy with the result.

Inspiration I took from the Muse card came from the multiple "thank you" in different fonts and the colors on Jenni's card.  Jenni Murray made the Muse inspiration card below:

Glad you stopped by today and it's a cold one on the front range today :)

Just Because ...

Every time I see the colors black, white and red together they look so nice.  I chose to use these 3 colors for my card today and am entering it in 2 challenges:

The Card Concept - Romantic roses, see below.  Concept: clean & layered
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Use patterned paper

So happy you stopped by today :)

Did Someone Say Watermelon?

Summertime says watermelon to me, just love watermelon, always have.  When I saw this week's sketch at Cas(E) this Sketch I knew exactly the card I wanted to make!

Here's the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Birthday Flowers


This week's challenge at Seize The Birthday is "Anything Goes".  I have been trying to create pretty watercolor backgrounds lately and was so happy with this one I decided to use it on my card for the challenge.  I added the "honey blossom sprig" die from Memory Box and some sparkle and a sentiment to finish my card.  Oh yes, the sparkly ribbon; one can never have too much sparkle :)

So happy you stopped by today, now go get your sparkle on xoxox

Camp Create Day 3 - Spectacular Shakers

Camp Create Day 3 at the My Favorite Things blog is Spectacular Shakers.  I haven't made a shaker card is some time and after watching the video on shaker cards I learned a better way to make one, thanks so much MFT stamps.  The Gnome set from MFT is one of my favorite stamp sets, I just love the little Gnomes.  I put both tiny flower sequins and larger clear sequins in the shaker for dimension.
What a hot day today, 99 degrees, set a record on the front Range.

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Camp Create Day 2 - Remarkable Resist

Camp Create, Day 2 at My Favorite Things blog is Remarkable Resist.  As I have not done this technique before, the video was a great help.  I used a music background stamp and flower dies and sentiment from My Favorite Things.
Thanks for stopping by today :)
