Girly card

I'm scraping in with this girly card for Fab n funky 63: make it girly.

Pop out oval card

This card was made from some of the components in the recently purchased QVC Kanban kit - I need to make a few more of these before my Tearfund sales - first one is on Friday evening.

With St Patrick's Day looming and lots of 'green' challenges around in blogland atm, this seemed a good card to make - those fields could well be Irish I think (although I confess that I've never been to Ireland).


So this is for:

Card cupids: green card
Sentimental Sundays 46: let's go green
Critter 56: monochromatic green
Created by hand: green/#4
Penny's 48: going for the green
Meljen 49: green - a little or a lot
Stamp insanity 50: holy Guacamole! - anything goes, add a pop of green
Crafty Ho's: green, gold and white
Let's craft and create 14: St Patrick's day
Little red wagon: St Patty's day green
Sisterhood of crafters: St Patty's day
One powerful hour: green, green and more green

ECP 33: green
Fun at fairy knoll: St Patrick's day
My sheri 48: St Patrick's day
If the shoe fits 70: you feeling lucky?
Pattie's creations 17: go green in honour of St Patrick's day
Sew many challenges 46: St Patrick's day
Stampin with the dragon: St Patrick's day

Silver swirling wings

This card is for the sketch for Cards and things 70:

As soon as I saw the Inspiration challenge on In Style I knew that I would make a card using BG Lilykate papers, but it's taken till now for me to get around to making it (the last day of the challenge - typical!). Anyway, this is the inspiration picture for In Style Inspiration:

I stamped Funstamps swirling wings directly on to the green patterned paper with Brilliance starlight silver and heat embossed with clear powder - unfortunately, it doesn't show up too well here - and the Birthday Greetings looks a bit dull, whereas irl it's light and silvery. The scalloped strip was cut on my rotatrim.

It also uses the colours for Stamp away with me colour cue 13:

The card has quite a lot of green on it, so I'm linking for these challenges:

Card cupids: green card
Sentimental Sundays 46: let's go green
Created by hand: green/#4
Penny's 48: going for the green
Meljen 49: green - a little or a lot
Creative card crew: show us some green
Stamp insanity 50: holy Guacamole! - anything goes, add a pop of green

Simon says: anything goes

Get well soon

This car is for Truly Scrumptious 52:

It uses the colours for today's challenge on 365 cards (day 15):

I used Basic Grey cappella papers, stamping on the green paper strips with Funstamps paisley background and the butterflies were stamped on to the light peach paper and coloured in with various copic peach shades. I used Janet Klein's butterfly stamp for Stampotique's challenge 26: animal, insect or bird.

As I've used BG papers this is also for Basic Grey 39: wings and for Going grey with Scrap-creations: anything goes.

I chose buttons for the crafty pad 112 and this week's Moxie Tuesday trigger.

This is also for:
