A Trio of Challenge Cards

Happy Wednesday

This week over at Creative Moments the challenge is Anything Goes, with an optional twist of a tag/gift/card for a special lady or Mum

We have 2 lovely sponsors for this challenge 

The first card features the lovely paper and embellishment set from Decosse Dynamite called Mommy Dearest

The only embellishment is the Spellbinders Les Papillion, as the papers and doily are just so pretty. My darling Husband chose this card to give to his Mother last Sunday for Mothers Day.

My second creation uses the super sweet pre-coloured image by Di's Digi Stamps, called 
Happiness is Beary Daisy

I used a luggage tag from my stash as the base, and cut a layer in pink, I embossed this with a Crafters Companion folder called Floral Wonder. 
I used Spellbinders Celebrations - Build a Tag 1 to cut out the image and Spellbinders Celebrations Enhanced Pennant for the flower.

This week at the Crafters Cafe the theme is "What Season are You in", and the lovely Di is also sponsoring this challenge

I used the outline image - Fore You, and the season I am in is (very nearly) Spring, and here the lovely lime green of the foliage on the spring flowers and the beautiful blue/mauve of the Blue Bells are my reason for choosing this colour combo

I used my Copic markers to colour the image and cut it out with a Spellbinders Labels 1 die, The card base is created with Spellbinders Labels 1 Card Front, and the little embellishments are from Frantic Stamper - Golf Set & Golf Companion.

I always look forward to browsing the entries in the challenges and seeking some inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by

  2. Hi Alex,

    What an absolutely lovely job on your cards and tag. I've course I'm partial to the one you created using my designs. I'm honoured that your husband chose it to give to your MIL. It feels warm and fuzzy knowing my designs are out there being used on cards all over the world!

    Thanks so much for having me as a sponsor!
