Challenge Inspiration

I'm still on my card making kick and having fun trying new supplies and techniques. It used to be that I'd make a couple a month and send them out, but now I actually have a stockpile of cards. I managed to send out three this past week and hope to keep sending them out to add a little sunshine to someone's day.


For the new challenge I'm hosting over on the forum, I made a card based on the image and colors that were provided as inspiration. There are still two weeks left to play along and you can enter as many projects as you'd like.

I used a sheet from Crate Paper {the Open Road} for my background and then stamped my sentiment and a butterfly on a sheet of adhesive backed cork. The letters and dies are from Mama Elephant and the butterfly is from an old My Mind's Eye set. Some inked die cut clouds and gold stitching finished it off.

Here's all the details for the current challenge, hope you'll play along!


Have a great weekend!
