Cards for the Paper Challenge
Here are the cards I made for our little paper challenge. This week Lori (another Lori!) sent this really pretty harlequin print paper in such yummy pastels and a glimpse of sparkle. The first card is a case of a card made by Beate, it was a sketch challenge but I used the ribbon and white scalloped edge ideas oh plus the idea of a flower on the left... The other one is a sweet little bird I was dying to work with, I made it to be a black-capped chickadee. I know, you ask why not the North Carolina one - well because it isn't barely banana (yellow) colored of course LOL! I had trouble with the sentiment, when I matted it, you no longer saw the bird as the focus so I ran the little strip through it to be different and used the brads. Not sure I like it but I am always trying to find new ways to do these things! I traced the words with a glue pen and sprinkled glitter on them.
Oh! I added a new link to my favorites called "check out these sites" - Kat Toys. It is on the left and towards the bottom of my blog . This gal is very talented! She just started blogging and I am just in awe of her beautiful tags and books she makes, go check it out :) Kat Toys. Good night!
