Happy Sunday! It is cold and cloudy here in our part of North Carolina today. After spring temps last week, sporting sandals with a fresh pedicure, and capri pants, I am back to pants, long sleeves, and socks today. We even had to turned the heat on. Bummers! On the bright side, it was a perfect day to get crafty! I have two cards to share today!
For my first card I am playing along with this week's ColourQ Challenge. When I saw these wonderful hues of greens, I remembered some watercolored "practice" papers I created a few weeks back just playing around. I went through my stash and decided I could use this background. The colors worked perfectly. I also decided it was time to use my PTI Sweet Speech. I purchased this set a few months back on the Buy/Sale Forum at PTI. Naturally, I cannot make a card without mixing a few sets, so I used PTI Flower Favorites for the butterflies, and Sentiment Splits for bottom sentiments. I finished my card with some silver thread and a few sequins. I even put some wink of stella on my butterflies. I am also playing along with City Crafter Challenge: Make It Green.
For my second card I am playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink Create Along With Us Challenge. I chose to case Dawn's card HERE! I just fell in love with this color combo. I used the Spring Woods set like Dawn for my background. This card is also very CAS, so I am playing along with this week's The Paper Players Clean and Simple Celebrate Spring Challenge.
I had to improvise for the rest of the images. I used Birthday Cheer for the sentiment in red and framed with Outlined stamp set in raspberry fizz. I die cut the largest Scribble in white to give me some loops behind the sentiment. I sponged the edges of the berry sorbet card stock with hibiscus burst. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
