SSS Flickr May Challenge -- Enticing Trio

The Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge theme for May is Enticing Trio--create a project
using three of anything.  Here's my card.

I used SSS Friendly Birds Embossing Folder and Dies to cut out three birds, then ran them
through the coordinating embossing folder.  I inked them up using dye inks and Copics.

I adhered a WPlus9 cover die on a card base and adhered the birds on top. 
CZ Design sentiments and clear sequins finished off the card.

I'm off to link up this card. Thanks for stopping by!

Color Throwdown Challenge #743

This week's Color Throwdown Challenge 743 is pink, lime, and white.

Here's my card using Altenew's Blooming Flower Bed Stencil. Again. 


This time, stenciling was a breeze because there was only one color for the flowers 
and green for everything else. Stenciling was done directly on the card base and
I wanted to add a little something so I DIY'd a frame from two rectangle dies
and added the sentiment. Clear sequins finished off the card.

Off to link this up, early for once. Thanks for stopping by!

The Flower Challenge -- PRETTY PASTELS

I can't believe we're halfway through the month of May! A cold and flu bug made its
rounds in two households and now we're all slowly recovering. 
I finally found the energy to create again and using scrap pieces helped put this card 
together for this month's The Flower Challenge--PRETTY PASTELS.
Here's my card.

I had the dome shape in my scrap pile and embossed the magnolias on them. I used residual
ink on my brushes and applied the color over the piece. Some silver ink was spattered over
and adhered to an embossed card base. A scrap sentiment piece was added together with
some small iridescent drops.

Once again, I'm grateful for my scraps. Thanks so much for stopping by!
