A Happy Birthday Card for a Challenge

 Hello everyone!!

It is a rainy day here in the Northeast. I was home sick today as a result from side effects from my first Shingles vaccine on Friday. I would rather have these side effects than Shingles, though. I know a number of people who have had it and it is very painful and can last a long time. I would rather be exhausted and have some swollen glands than that!!

I was able to make some card yesterday for a challenge. I am posting them really quick to make some deadlines. First, I created a card for Freshly Made Sketches #505.

Here is the sketch:

I used a TON of scraps on this and only really had to die cut the orange botanical for this card. 

The sentiment and the stamping in the background were done with an old PaperTrey Ink set called Hands of Time. I have been trying to dig in to my stash to use things that I still love but haven't used in a long time.  

I used Pinkfresh Studio's Small Butterflies *stamp and *die set for my butterfly and *Curvy Leaves for my leaf element. The butterflies set has been my new favorite to use as of late!!

That is all from me today!! Have a FABULOUS day!!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #529-Anything Goes!!

Hello everyone!!

It is time for a new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. The next two weeks is ANYTHING GOES!!! This time we are being hosted by Di's Digi StampsThey are giving the lucky winner a prize of 2 Digital Stamps of the winners choice!

I do not own any of Di's Digitals so I decided to do something a little different. Instead of using stamps, I used die cuts on my card. 

I used to scrapbook and have TONS of pre-made die cuts laying around so I decided to dig through them and use them for a card. 

I added some PinkFresh Studio Curvy Leaves dies to die cut white leaves that I tucked under my colorful die cuts. I used a clear sparkle pen to give them a little shine. I even added some *Nuvo Drops in Gloss White to the flowers on the sentiment die cut. 

I hope that you will play along with us at Cupcake Inspiration ChallengesI cannot wait to see what you create!!! 

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a FABULOUS day!!
