Some Challenge Cards

Splitcoast Clean and Simple - CAS78 Use Polka Dots

I think I have enough polka dots on this card. {grin} The purse from
Retail Therapy is paper-pieced and I went over the dotted handle with my silver gel pen.

This is a fun technique idea that I had never heard of before. Click on the link to the challenge for the directions. I made a plaid tree from Nature's Song and paired it with this inspiring word art When the World.

Splitcoast Sketch Challenge - SC292
Speedy's Friends Challenge #14 - Thank You Card

Fun sketch this week based on a card by Dawn Mercedes. Which is perfect because I needed to make her a thank you card using the fun stuff she sent in my un-birthday package. {see previous post}

I embossed a star with one of my new cuttlebug folders and then used a star nestie to cut out a larger star around it. I used the nestie as a template to trace a star outline with my stardust pen. I highlighted the dry embossed part with my pen too. The turquoise part is covered with stars using my Versarmark Dazzle ink pad. I love how it gives a shimmery tone on tone background. The fun tabs were decorated with my new ribbon, star gems and embossing folder.

Stamps: Starstruck and Grateful Thanks by Paper Makeup Stamps
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark Dazzle Frost
