BeYOUtiful Momenta Intricate Flower Mat

I hope you're having a great day! Did you know it's Lollipop Day? I was inspired by hard candy colors for my card made with beautiful Momenta craft products today! 
This Intricate Floral Matt from Momenta is so very versatile. I cut it from white card stock and layered it over a distress ink panel of orange, lemon and cherry. 
The flowers are topped with little half pearls. Who doesn't love a bit of bling?
To draw your eye to the sentiment I added colorful circles under the sentiment from the Love You Stamp and Emboss set. A little stitched flag from the Pineapple Cut and Emboss is tucked under the sentiment circle. 
You'll love creating with Momenta products. The best part is that you'll find them at your favorite craft stores like Hobby Lobby. They have a wonderful selection to choose from!

Tag You're It! Christmas In July!

A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It Challenge blog. It's Christmas in July this time. Check out the inspiration photo!

It's a basket of winter greenery with pops of red berries. What a great way to welcome visitors to your home!
My favorite red and green for the holidays are beautiful poinsettias! My Mom keeps hers all year long but mine are never happy with how dry the house is in the winter. I added a Copic colored Pretty Pink Posh Poinsettia to a Decorative Tag 1 die. A sprinkle of Caribbean Blue Jewels adds lots of sparkle and shine.
I gotta say.. red and aqua is one of my very favorite color combinations ever!

Now it's your turn! Click here to jump to the Tag You're It Challenge Blog where you'll find more samples from the team and a place to link up your own design! We love to see what you make!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Lions and Tigers Oh My!


Today I'm playing along at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This time they want you to feature a creature with their Animal Challenge!
I've been rediscovering Spellbinders lately and couldn't resist the Tiger Oh My! die set. It's got all the die cut little pieces to create this cute tiger. He's even got a hat, monocle and bow tie!
I made two of each card switching out the background colors. The Tiger is mounted on a Fancy Edge Circle. This set is wonderful because you can cut scalloped circles as well as plain edge circles with a detailed edge. 
This is the Spellbinders Lion Oh My! Isn't he great? Yes! The party hat and glasses are included in the die set. I added some google eyes for a bit of fun! 
The sentiments are from the Giving Occasions set. And again.. I made two cards - a second using different background colors.
I'm happy I'm set for some birthday cards for the kiddos now.. but I know a few older "kids" LOL that will like these too!
