Hope everyone had a great week. Because we have a ton of things going on this weekend I decided to do one big post today to last you until Monday. First of all I want to wish you all a Happy Easter. My first card uses the newly released "Easter Blessings" set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. This set is just gorgeous and can be used for things other than Easter. The tulips are colored with Prismacolor markers and then painted with Shimmerz.
Next I wanted to share a couple challenge cards I made this week. This first challenge is an inspiration posted on the Paper Makeup Stamps blog. Here is the inspiration piece:
Here is my card. I just love all of the monster stamps from Paper Makeup. They all make me smile. I thought this sentiment from The Angel Company was perfect for this guy! I decided to use the inspiration piece as a color challenge so I used red, blue and green.
The second challenge I did this week is actually a combination of the Little Paper Shop sketch challenge as well as last week's Flutter By Wednesday challnege (no designer paper *gasp*).
Here is the LPS sketch:
Here is my card. I really liked this sketch but I struggled big time trying not to use designer paper. In the end I think it turned out ok but I now realize how much I depend on designer paper, lol.
Thanks for stopping by, all of your comments really mean a lot to me. I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter! I'm taking the weekend off from blogging but I will be back on Monday with another fun card from DRS Designs!
