Some Challenge Cards

Hello everyone!! Happy Tuesday to you all.

I have been doing a bit of crafting at my house. I had a friend over yesterday and I helped her make a bunch of cards of the same design. They were based off my card in this post. We changed up the colors and the sentiments. It was fun to share my supplies and chat while creating!!

Today I am sharing a card I created for this weeks CASE this Sketch Challenge #333. I used a technique based this Jennifer McGuire video but with a stencil.

Am I the only one who has a tough time taking photos of cards created with Kraft cardstock? I cannot ever seem to get the color right in the photos to match IRL!!!

Here is the sketch I based it off of:

The flowers are from MFT's Stitched Garden Die-namics.  I created the background with a stencil, orange ink and then inking the edges with metallic ink.

I used Nuvo Drops in Dandelion Yellow for the flower centers and little embellishments.

For my next card, I used a challenge from a private board and am entering this into Just Us Girls #499.

I used Paper Smooches Sunny and Mini Cloud dies, as well as a scrap of pattern paper to create my card.

The shiny glasses were a fluke. I was looking through all my stuff to see if I had anything that would look like a lens but could find nothing. I die the lenses out of silver mirrored cardstock and while adhering them, got glue all over the front and it left marks. 

My solution was to use an adhesive eraser and then cover them with Glossy Accents. I think it came out cool!!

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Bitty Birthday Word Stamps.

In other news, just got back from taking my little pup to the vet once again. He had a cough and really bad breath. (the breath was worse then usual dog breath!) We are trying antibiotics as he was kenneled for a week while we were on vacation BUT it is most likely the heart murmur he was just diagnosed with today. This dog costs more than my child! If the antibiotics don't work, he will have to be put on heart meds, as well as the thyroid and the seizure meds he is already on. We will have to change his diet too. Totally feel so sad about it.

Well, that is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
