Just Us Girls Challenge. Their theme is to use a Template. I usually give my grand-daughters money for Easter instead of candy and I wanted to make money holders. I made my own template for this challenge and used papers from my stash. These two cards were very easy to make and I didn't want to add too many embellishments so I kept them simple. On the fronts I used one of my Martha Stewart corner punches, added ribbon, a sentiment and a chipboard flower with a pearl in the center. On the inside I used one of my Nestibilities dies to cut out the scallop oval. I added a butterfly using my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I only hope my grand-daughters love the outside as well as what is in the inside...

A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge. Their theme this week is "Bookmark This". I love making bookmarks and this one was created with some of my newest stash by My Mind's Eye called Summer Song. I added a butterfly using my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and also used my Martha Stewart flower border punch for two of the corners. I shaded my cardstock using Color Box Chalks around the edges. I took some gold metallic thread and strung some contrasting beads along with a gold butterfly charm. I added a sentiment and some glitter glue.

The Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge. I used one of Michelle's images named Pearl and colored her using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I used the sketch provided by one of Michelle's Design Teams. I used papers from my stash along with Primas flowers, brads and Stickles Glitter Glue. So what do you think?

Hello everyone... Today I have another creation and this is my DT entry for Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge. I am also entering it in The Dutch Dare Card Challenge. For Michelle's challenge the theme is a recipe to use 3 Design Papers, 3 flowers, 3 buttons or brads and to use a Springtime Theme. Dutch Dare Challenge theme is to make a gate card. I used papers from the Paper Studio called So-So-Sweet and my image is from Michelle Perkett Studio. I colored my image using a combination of Adobe Fireworks and my Copic markers. The gate card is my own design and my very first try at one. On the outside I cut an oval and added 3 Prima flowers and 3 brads that look like buttons. I used 4 eyelets so I could insert ribbon to open and close my card. On the inside I used my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder for some texture. I also added a scallop border and some glitter paper to use as a ballet bar for my cute little bunny. I made my sentiment using Microsoft Word and added some heart shaped flowers from Michelle.
