Another Entry!

I've decide to enter another card in the Scrapmaster's Paradise Trends Challenge #10 using negative space and My Creative Time's Bling it Up Challenge

I wanted to do another take on this by using the negative space of a die cut that I had and sponged it onto a card. The flower is from Stampin' Up. It's called Blessed Mother. I used Tim Holtz Distress Pens to color the stamp. The sentiment is from SP & Company's Bold Sentiment I. I used a gem for the center of the flower.

I didn't have anybody in particular to give this card to but you can never have to many thank you cards in your stash. This was probably one of the quickest cards I have made!!

Pink By Design Challenge

Pink by Design is having a Vintage Challenge. There is still time to enter.

I used K & Company Designer Mat Pad for the papers. The bird and the nest are also from the same company. To me the papers and colors look very vintagy (if that is a word :) ). The Happy Mother's Day was cut on my Cricut.  Of course, it had to have some bling so I used pearls.

My mom loved the card!

One Card...3 Challenges!

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

SP & Company Color Challenge #144 - using the following colors:

SP & Company Trends Challenge #10  - using negative space.

My Creative Time Designer Challenge - Bling It Up

The background paper is from Echo Park Beautiful Life. It had all the colors that I needed for the color challenge. The base of the card is red although it's hard to tell  from the picture. I cut out a scallop from the middle of the paper using my Spellbinders die (thus giving me the negative space).

The Happy Birthday and the heart come from SP & Company's Round Sentiments I stamp set. The banner is from SP & Company's Stitchery Doo Banners set. Kelly was spelled using SP & Company's Tiny Build A Banner set.

The butterflies were punched using Stampin' Up punches and stamped with the Stampin' Up Papillon Potpourri. I've never seen a red butterfly but I'm sure there's one out there somewhere is this great big world!  I blinged up the flower centers using Stickles and put rhinestones on the butterflies.

On the inside of the card I used SP & Company's Bold Birthday Sentiments.

This will be the first card that I have made for my new daughter-in-law. I hope she enjoys it.

Here's a close up of the center and a butterfly.

And finally the inside of the card.
