Sketch for Come and Get It


This is my card for the Come and Get it Challenge this week which we have a sketch I decided that I liked the idea of the sketch and decided to use some new paper I picked up when visiting in Iowa in October. I also used some foam embellished snowflakes that are all glittery. The tags are punched with one retired punch and one current punch. The ribbon is  the pool party seam binding ribbon, which I just love. the borders were punched from white glitter paper using an old snowflake punch I have. Thanks for looking, have a great weekend, I'm away visiting friends and family, but will be back in time for my post at Holly Jolly. Oh some news too. I've been asked to be guest designer at the fairy tale challenge blog. Go check it out and check it out on Friday for the my first post

Flourishes and Swirls

This week at Come and Get It were asking to see swirls or flourishes on your creations. I brought out my new stamp set called Flowering Flourishes, as well as the Papillion Potpourri set, and also for the sentiment I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. For the color combo I went to the Color Coach, which under River Rock the sweet set combo is River Rock, Not Quite Navy and Tangerine Tango. I used the boho blossom punch and the papillion punch for the larger butterfly and flowers. I've added some pearls to finish off the card. The butterflies were stamped with stazon and water colored with Tangerine Tango and Not Quite Navy inks the bodies are done with River Rock. Thanks for looking. Hope you will join us at Come and Get It Challenges.

3-2-1 Challenge for Holly Jolly

For Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge this week we are sponsored, and I have used the Sponsor's image to make my card. I'm still trying to use up some of the older supplies I have on hand, so used some paper from last year at Christmas. It's great paper, and you can get it digitally if you really like it. The challenge was 3 embellishments, which I used brads, 2 designer papers, and one image, greeting is ok too. So this is what I came up with very simple but still pretty.
