Matching Tag

This is the matching tag for the card below.

Card and Tag Challenge

Here's the final Card and Tag challenge for the season over at Joan's garden  This card is done in BoBunny papers. I hand cut the top of the card to match the tag. The "doilies" are done with Spellbinders. A little ribbon and a few buttons and twine added. One stamp from SU used for the flowers on the doilies. I had to keep it more simple because I ran out of time.

Monochromatic card

It's raining it's pouring so I am unable to work out in my yard. If it isn't the wind it's the rain. I was able to mow my grass and fertilize before the rains so goody for that!! I came indoors and finished up my  card for the challenge at Joans garden, to see details click here
Requirements: *Monochromatic *Embossed background *Flowers *Flourish * Butterflies.
I used Sizzix butterfly dies, SU paper cameo coral, off white and Pirouette pink, Spellbinders shapeabilites flourish , Prima  flowers, Rose is handmade from paper. Stamps from Papertrey Ink- Butterfly Kisses, Cuttlebug folders. I used a bit of Creamy Caramel ink to darken the edges and stamp the sentiment and swirls in the butterfly. I think I got it all covered!!

Vintage Blue and Green

My card for the challenge here The requirements were Colors Blue/Green, Use a Lady, Include a Large Embellishment, Attach a bow. I used an old 2004 set from Stampin up. I love this set but it has hardly been used. It is one of two sets that I have that have a "Lady" in them. So there it is. Paper is from an old SU color Buckaroo blue. The little ribbon is silk leftover from some ribbon embroidery that I did years ago. I used Tim Holtz distress ink-Pumice stone to stamp along with the SU BBlue and Mellow moss. Did a bit of coloring with Copic markers. 
So that's it!!

A garden card

 Well chances are slim that I would win again this week but I enjoy entering the challenges at Joans Garden. You can check that out over HERE . It keeps me motivated in designing another card each week. Requirements *Colors lime green and pink *Lattice *Leaves to create a vine * Butterflies. 
I used a saleabration "Sweet Summer" stamp set from SU. I cut strips for my lattice in off white. The rest is pretty straight forward. Punch on bottom is ek success. Now I can just add whichever sentiment I want when I need it. Thanks Joan for the last win, I'll be looking forward to receiving it in the mail!! :)
