Paper Craft Crew Challenge #256

Hey peeps. Just popping by for a quick post with two projects for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #256. I have been in the craft room trying to craft and it looks like a bomb has gone off!! (no photos-too embarrassing!!)

I created my first card using LDRS Creative's "Sweet Treats" set.

I kind of made a mess of the splattering and it went to the right of my card as well as the left. Then I put my finger in it before it was completely dry and had to use my sand eraser to fix it.

The pig was colored in with Copic markers. I used a white gel pen for the little dots on his cheeks and his eyes.

The circle he sits on was created with two types of Distress Ink and a stencil. The pig is actually on a mini action wobbler but I don't know how to put a video in a post yet.

Here is the fun sketch from the Paper Craft Crew that I used (PCC256):

For my second card, I chose to use a piece of patterned paper from Bella BLVD's "Make a Mark" 6" by 8" paper pad and die cut as my focal point.

The paper already had a fun sentiment and all I did was pop a die cut, some gold Washi tape and a few gold pearls and it was a card!!!

I was surprised at how easy it all came together!! What was even better, the die cut was a left over from one of my SJ card kits. In August we are choosing to use all the bits and pieces we didn't use in the first round.

Well that is all form me today. I am off to meet one of my friend's for breakfast. Next week is back to work so I am cramming in all my socialization this week!!

Have a fabulous day!!

What a cute little piggy! I like the collage of elements you added with him and the little splatters too. Your second card is vibrant and ever so pretty!
