A Challenge Card and Some Totally Random Creations

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Just popping in with some cards I created.

This first card was inspired by some challenges.

I created the patterned paper using an Echo Park stencil on white card stock which I stenciled with MFT "Daffodil" and "Blue Breeze" die ink. I then adhered the panel to a light blue, A2, top folding card base.

I then stamped the sentiment using Sugar Peas Designs "Pucker Up" stamp set in black. I adhered a die cut blue banner on top and a white square over that. Next I adhered the lemonade images over the front of the square, using foam adhesive to pop up the glass and the lemon.

I am entering this card into Fusion Challenge Card Sketch and the colors by "Inspired By Hello Spring."

I was inspired by the sketch for the Fusion Challenge and the yellow and blue colors in the Inspired By photo.

My second random card design I made for a friend.

I die cut the Memory Box "Intricate Bee" out of gold glitter paper and mounted over a Memory Box "Honey Comb Stitched Circle Frame" die.

I die cut the thanks using WPlus9's "Basic Greetings" set, colored it in with a Spectrum Clear Sparkle marker and adhered it to the card front. I then covered it with Glossy Accents. I added a crown of embossed gold and tied some gold thread around the top.

My second card has the same card design BUT instead of using gold glitter paper (I ran out) I die cut the bee and embossed it in gold instead. I think I like it better.

Instead of using the WPlus9 greeting I used a die cut Lawn Fawn thanks sentiment.

Well, that is all from me today. I thank you for stopping by!! Have a great day!!

I was thinking you had used absolutely perfect paper behind the lemonade - and then saw it was a stencil!! Fabulous! LOVE the pops of blue! The bee and the honeycomb circles are fabulous dies - perfect with the simple "thanks".
