Blogger's Challenge #205: Sketch

I have to make this a super quick computer is tired and old this morning!

Lisa gave us the sketch above as our challenge!  Super fun!  I finally got to break out my Eat Chocolate set and came up with this card:
I think I successfully tinted my pearls pink!  I just used a Melon Mambo marker and when I compared it to a pearl without color, you can see the difference.  Probably the most subtle item but imporant as I was using white cardstock and the pearls are little off white.

Be sure to see what the other players did and please, play along by adding your name and your link to the group below!

Blogger's Challenge #204: Spring Flowers

I am so glad to be sharing my version of a spring flower with you!  In the latest copy of Stampin Success (a magazine for SU demos) they showed some samples of Mother of Pearl stamping techniques.  I made up a quick sheet of it last night and finished my card tonight when it was dry and ready to run through my Big Shot with the Fun Flowers you think I like this die? 

I used some creative elements from some other recent cards (a layout from a sympathy card, the embossing from last week's challenge) plus the Mother of Pearl tech and my card is finally complete!

Thanks for looking and please play along!  Just enter your name and project link below!

Blogger's Challenge #203: Happy Birthday to Lisa S!

Our challenge given to us from our list mom, Lisa, was a birthday challenge.  I happen to know that SHE will be celebrating her birthday next week so my card will be in the mail to her right after I finish this post!

Lisa LOVES Basic Black!  If you check out her blog, I think it's rare to not find her signature black on her cards and projects!  So that was MY inspiration for her card!

Thanks for checking out my card this week.  Be sure to see what the other players did and know that you are invited to play along!

Blogger's Challenge #202: Color!

Look Mom!  No Stampin'!

Our challenge was to use peach, white and green.  I chose Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.  Since my niece is soon due with baby #3, I was inspired to make a baby card with these colors!  I only used some ink to color my scallop circle made from the Presto Patterns DSP!  I used a layout/idea inspiration from a card by Julia Stainton in the latest issue of Papercrafts magazine.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and please, check out the other players below.  Also, I invite you to play along with the challenge!
