# 481-2016-01
Supplies used :
Cardstock : Pastel green, green marble, Dots & Stripes paper pack, white, hunter green
Framelits : stamp & cut butterflies, stamp & cut flowers, scalloped squares
Die cuts : branch w/ leaves die cut
Stamp sets : stamp & cut butterflies, stamp & cut flowers, handwritten sentiments
Inks : Perfect Plum, Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant
Other : sequins

I decided to make another card for this weeks http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com card challenge.

However, I decided to make a square card instead of the normal 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.

I used a scalloped square framelit with pastel green cardstock for the blank card. Then I used green marble cardstock for the first layer or background. Then I cut a strip of a striped paper from my Dots & Stripes paper pack and used it behind my flowers.

I used my branch w/ leaves die cut with hunter green paper to go behind my flowers, which are stamped onto white paper with Lavender Lace ink and cut out with the matching framelit.

I used Elegant eggplant for the 2 butterflies, which are also cut out using the matching framelit.
The sentiment is stamped on using Perfect Plum ink. Then I added the sequins to give my card an added look.
I hope you will enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you for stopping by.

Framelits : Stamp & Cut Flowers, Branch w/ Leaves Die Cut, Scalloped Circle framelit, Circle framelit.

This card is also posted in this weeks http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com card sketch challenge.

I decided to try using a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" scalloped circle framelit to make a circle card for this weeks challenge. I used a pastel green for this. 

Then I used a green marble paper and I cut out a large circle to use as my background.

The striped strip on the side is paper from my Dots & Stripes paper pad.

I used my branch w/ leaves die cut along with my Stamp & Cut flowers set, which is a clear stamp set that comes with the matching framelits. For my flowers, I used Perfect Plum ink and for the sentiment, I used Elegant Eggplant ink, which are both Stampin' Up inks. The sentiment is from my Handwritten Sentiments clear stamp set. I added the sequins to give my card an added look.

And this completes my card for this weeks card challenge. Thank you for stopping by. Your comments are appreciated. 

Happy Valentine's Day

Supplies used :
Cardstock : Pastel Blue, White, Pastel Pink
Framelits : Scalloped Circles, Scalloped Hearts
Ink : Red, Blue
Accessories : Gems, Sequins, Glittered Hearts

This card is also posted in this weeks Freshly Made Sketches card challenge at http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com.

For this weeks challenge, I decided to make my card a little different. Instead of making the normal sized card, I went with a circle card.

First, I used a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Scalloped circle framelit to cut out the blank card using pastel blue cardstock. Then I used a regular Circle framelit using white cardstock.

Then I cut out 2 pastel pink scalloped hearts and 1 pastel blue scalloped heart. I put a glittered heart on all 3 hearts and put them in place. I used an already made label for the sentiment, which I used a Valentine wood stamp with red ink. I used a sponge to add the blue ink around the border of the label. Then I added gems and sequins for an added touch. And this completes my card.

I know my cards that I make aren't as beautiful as everyone elses are, but I do enjoy making my cards and I try to be a little creative at times. I hope you like it...

# 475-2016-01
Supplies used :
Cardstock : Pink Marble, Chocolate Brown, Pastel Patterned Paper
Ink : Red, Chocolate Chip
Tools : Heart Framelit, Scalloped Square Framelit, Sissix Big Kick, Paper Piercing Tool
Stamps : Stamp and Cut Yes (clear stamp with matching die cut framelit)
Other : Glitter Hearts, Red Heart Brad, Paper Doily, Baker's Twine

This is my card for this weeks Mojo Monday card challenge, which is located at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com

I chose a Valentine's Day theme for my card. I started with a Pink Marbled blank cardstock, which is cut to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Then I cut a chocolate brown and another pink marble cardstock down to the desired size for the background.

The patterned paper is cut down to 2" x 4" and is placed on the left side. Then I cut a paper doily in half and adhered it to the right side. 

Then I cut out a scalloped square using chocolate brown paper and then I cut out a light marble pink for the front. I used a heart stamp before using the matching framelit.

I used chocolate chip ink to highlight the doily. Then I used some Baker's Twine on the side with a red heart brad, along with using the 2 glittered hearts.

This completes my card for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thank you for stopping by.
