Birthday Butterfly Wishes

Today I'm playing at the Triple B challenge where they're looking for Birds, Butterflies and Blooms. my card today features the Stitched Butterflies from Pretty Pink Posh.
I started my card with a white Decorative Tag 2 on a background of light pink to create a focal point for my design. I thought of the butterflies the same way I would a flower and cut them from pretty floral colors - pink, orange and yellow.
I tucked some Spring Foliage around the butterflies in blue, green and purple so I have every color of the rainbow covered!
A Simple Sentiment strip and a few jewels finish off the design.
I hope you find some time to play today!

Beach More - Worry Less

Today I'm playing at Creative Knockouts challenge where this time it's Summer Fun! In my opinion Summer requires at least one trip to the beach.. whether its the ocean or a lake beach doesn't matter! It's all about a day away from the cell phone and work, and enjoying a day with NO AGENDA!
My card starts with that fab A2 background die called Happy Waves. I cut the die from white cardstock and then cut a bunch of blue scraps with the same die. All the pieces are inlaid for a clean smooth background.
I added glitter paper that looks a bit "sandy" or is it the shine of the waves in the sunshine?
I topped the panel with the Oversized Beach word die and sentiment. One of my all time favorite dies at Waffle Flower is the Subsentiments die. I keep it on my desk all the time - it's one big die that cuts lots of labels at the same time, each of the labels is a different size. I just stamp the sentiment and then tape the die over it for a quick clean cut.
I added a sprinkle of gold glitter enamel dots from my stash to add a little more sparkle to this design.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

Merry Christmas Poinsettias

Today I'm playing along at the Krafty Chicks Challenge where this time it's all about Christmas!
My card starts with the Waffle Flower Holly Jolly die that I inked with Distress Ink using the coordinating stencil. I wish you could see this in person.. the crisp die cut and bright ink is prettier than pattern paper.
I topped the inky panel with die cut poinsettias using the Poinsettia Cluster die set. The set does not include leaves for the poinsettias. I just cut the flower from green cardstock and cut apart the petals for leaves.
The Merry Christmas Print die makes a bold statement and finishes off the design.
I cut the flowers from hot pink for a fresh look on the design. This allowed me to add the sentiment in red. Everything coordinates beautifully with the stenciled background.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find some time to play!
