Sneaking 2 Cards In



Well, this is crazy--two posts in one day--but I am trying to catch a few challenges that are about to end.  I'll be brief.




First up is a card for this week's Make it Monday #152.  I used the colors of this week's Dynamic Duos DD#91--the closest I had were SU Pear Pizzaz, Calypso Coral, and Strawberry Slush.  I used Fancy Flourishes with Fresh Snow ink, and Leave it Be stamps.  I was surprised how well the technique worked, and the flourishes really show through, especially on the most solid stamp.











This card is to help WPlus9 celebrate their birthday.  The challenge is Week 3 Trend Watch, and I've incorporated several trends in my card--feathers, sequins, and gold.  I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown ctd280, and the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch CTS #65 and Freshly Made Sketches FMS #124.




I'm still trying to work my way around the blogosphere.  If I haven't been by yet, I'll be there soon.


Thanks for Visiting

  8. Love the DD colors and your beautifully stamped card. The two step turned our gorgeous! The feathers are adoraable… I know feathers adorable??? Maybe because they are chubby.
