Well, as always there are some great challenges happening over at Scraptures, and I am definitely falling behind with them, but I did manage to get a couple of cards made.
One of the challenges was to make a masculine birthday card. Ellen posted her card with the inspiration of using buttons and ribbon for her card. The idea was to get us all thinking of doing cards without too much bling for the men in our lives. So many of use struggle with the masculine side of things, as in most cases, there is more for feminine projects, than for men.
For my card I used up some very old Basic Grey and Flair paper and some chipboard stars by Little Davis Designs. This is just a very simple, but effective card.
This second card was done to meet one of Wendy's challenges this month. Her challenge was to get a card done that we HAD to get done. For this challenge, I decided to create an easel card, for my Mother-in-law's birthday. I used old Sassafrass lass papers, Martha Stewart border punch. EK Success scalloped circle punches, EK Success leaf punch, Chatterbox ribbon, Stickles (waterfall) and a button that I had in my stash.
Thanks to both Ellen and Wendy for these fabulous challenges and getting me more active in card making!!! It is such a great way to use up scraps, and anyone that knows me, knows I have tons of them to use!!!
