Challenges, Challenges, & More Challenges!

It's snowing AGAIN in Kentucky! So I've been out sledding with my nephew and visiting the barnyard. But I've also had time to be creative! I've got 2 cards for 3 challenges.

First up is my card for Caardvarks and Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suites Color Challenge:



For this card I used Papertrey Ink & Core'dinations cardstock and Melissa Frances Patterned Paper. I added a Melissa Frances Date sticker and inked its edges. I used Papertrey Ink's Ocean Tide and Cream ribbon, Papertrey Ink stamps, and Martha Stewart punches. I'm so addicted to my MS butterfly punch. After I had layered my butterfly I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to add a little blue to the cream paper. To finish this card I added 2 buttons and glittered them.

My next card is for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge:



I flipped the sketch to make my card. My Cardstock and Stamp is Papertrey Ink. I added vintage goodies from Etsy (lace, ribbon, and image). And I used my Martha Stewart Scalloped Punch. I used Fancy Pants Rub-Ons. This little card was fun to make!

And Die Cuts R Us is having a Design Team Call. If you are interested just visit the Die Cuts R Us DT Blog for details.

Enjoy!!!

These are awesome! I've never tried to glitter buttons before but now I will! I was able to make 2 cards as well. I feel like I got my mojo back when she posted this color combo!

Amber, you should upload your first card to CPC since the Fun on Friday challenge is to use a calendar or date.

Great work!
