A Few Challenges...

Hello bloggers!

How are you doing today?

Today I am playing along with two challenge blogs...

DYSU Challenge Blog ...



For this card, I used ardstock from Papertrey Ink. The fairy stamp and sentiment are from The Craft's Meow. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the circle shapes to create the background. The large die is from Sizzix.

 
The tiny butterfly die is from Die-Namics and I added glitter to it.  The glass vial is Tim Holtz and I added embossing glitter. The yellow ribbon is from The Ribbon Reel. 
 
The button is PTI. Black ink is from Hero Arts, blue ink is Color Box peacock.


For my next card...

I am playing with Color Throwdown ....


The pattern papers are My Mind's Eye.  The stamps are from The Craft's Meow. The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink. The border punch is Fiskars. The large die is Sizzix.

The trims are from my stash. Crinkle ribbon is from Etsy.  The twine and large button are PTI. The tiny button is from Michaels. I used chestnut roan chalk ink from Color Box. I also used some Copic markers to color the images.

Thanks for stopping by and putting up with a very long post!
