This week Kiwi Lane posted a giveaway to their Facebook - all you had to do to enter was make a card. What? So simple? I know! So I found a couple of other challenges that I wanted to tie in with my card.
I started with pulling out my new Authentique Renew papers. LOVE these colors! No seriously, the pack just makes me happy. And I bought it in 8x8 and can I just say that while these cards are a teeny bit smaller than A2, I love that the 8x8 is so convenient for card making.
The first challenge I looked at was Cameo Creations - Spring and bling. Okay, these colors are clearly springy, as are butterflies and I met the requirement to use my Silhouette Cameo by cutting out the doily. The bling was done with a touch of Glimmer Mist on the doily, which is clearly not visible in the photo. Boo.
The other challenge I'm linking up to is Cute Card Thursday and their challenge was to use butterflies. That beauty is a stamp from Unity Stamp Co.
For those interested I inked the doily and sentiment with Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge. The stamp ink was Color Box Charcoal. The blue inking was Color Box Ocean. The Kiwi Lane Templates that I used were from Paisley Place and Aspen Court, both mini.
I was so pleased with myself but not ready to put the paper away yet, so I made a second card with the scraps. Okay, you know me. This card is sooooo not normal for me and I LOVE it.
The sentiment on this one is from Amy Tangerine Sketchbook.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great weekend!
