Card number one will head off to the current Card Concept Challenge. You can see why I channelled my inner froo once you see this very pretty inspiration photo. Not sure exactly which category my card fits into, but I think it's more Shabby Chic than anything else. Oh! And a happy anniversary to you too!!
I stuck with the creams and blacks, and picked up a bit of the green.
I used some watercolor paper for the creamy color it gives. The dies are from AE (Avery Elle) for the frame, PPP (Pretty Pink Posh) for the flag, RC (Reverse Confetti) for the flowers, and MFT (My Favorite Things) for the leaves. Scraps of papers, a bit of tulle, some twine, a curlycue bling thing, and a HA (Hero Arts) sentiment embossed in silver. One big ol' brad from Pink Paislee.
Card number two is for the current Muse Challenge. I love playing there, and missed last week because my brain and hands were disconnected. Wasn't going to miss this week...especially after seeing Michele's beauty:
This spoke to me right away, and while I don't have a decent butterfly die, I knew I wanted to make something special. I pretty much CASEd this...
It didn't photograph very well, but it is rather pretty in real life. I found green and gray scraps in my file, and used some white bits that I had laying around. There are three layers of leaves, one in watercolored green, one in vellum, and one in white. Memory Box leaf dies. A few PTI (Papertrey Ink) rainstones, and an RC stamp with ME (Mama Elephant) Smoke ink. Oh, and an MFT frame die. A boatload less froo on this than the first one.
While my card is very CAS, it contains both sprout and rock.
NBUS HA plant and rocks stamps. An older TT (Technique Tuesday) sentiment, a smidgen of twine, and MFT dies. Pretty darn easy. And I like this one! Hope you do too.
And since I've got to get things moving around here this morning, I will leave you. Happy dances everyone!
