New Challenge Card

Now I must say that I love Mary over at Cardz TV.  Lots of great videos and ideas.  This week, she did a card for the challenge at PaperPlaytime .  I love it when there is a theme and the card design is freestyle so I thought I would do an entry.

After my daughter's wedding I had GOBS of teal scraps left so I try to use them when I can.  S,o in this card, I pulled out a teal scrap and added a designer paper.  Then I added white rick rack (  rarely think of using this but it worked!).  Love the addition of the yellow flowers for a bit of punch.  I inked the scallops with teal and popped them up on foam tape.......had to add a bow .....just 'cuz!  Anyway, hope you like it!

Monday Musings

Well, I have not posted in a while...life gets in the way..........
Amyway, hit my craft room with gusto the last couple of days as I had several projects I needed to do.
cards for a bridal shower, a birthday and a thank you card.  Then....today I received the Mojo MOnday challenge sketch and knew I had to make a card from the sketch.  The sketch is below....

So off I went to my stash to find the perfect paper....
and I did!!!!!
I found a great group of papers by Authentique called Loyal.
Kind of "guy" paper" but is versatile so I went with it.

So here is my take on the sketch!
Hope you like it!  I was pleased with how it turned out.
Have a great day!
