Some Challange cards


I will never stop using these Best of Cluck chickens. They crack me up every time I use them! This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge. Sweet Miss Daisy was the person to CASE and since I just love her gallery, I had a blast going thru it again and picking a card to make.

I didn't realize until I was all done and ready for the ribbon that I didn't have any black...so I guess I have no other choice than to go to Michael's this weekend!!! hehehehe.


This card was for the Inspiration Challenge. The colors are not even close to the inspiration piece, but I still love how this came out. I bought these Prima flowers at Target ages ago and just now am using them. I thought they were so pretty for Spring. I wanted to add some sparkle to the card, so I sugared the flowers by covering them with Crystal Effects and then dumping Dazzling Diamonds glitter on them. SO pretty!


Here is a close up of the flowers...


I got some new toys on Wednesday and just had to play with them immediately. I wasn't so sure about the Big on Christmas set when I first saw it, but I am SO glad I got it! Just adorable.

The wide grosgrain ribbon is fabulous! So rich and striking. I will definitely need to save my pennies and get some more!

The focal image is stamped on Shimmer White and colored with markers. I stole the brad frame idea from Trudee. I was going to do the old standard 'punch the first layer and put the brad on the blue layer' approach, but I remembered a card she did where she put the brads right on the card. Sometimes it pays to stalk the stamping royalty!
