Challenge Cards

Today I worked on finishing up two different cards that I started yesterday with my friend Kim. (we had a play date!) 

First of all, in case you haven't heard, Tiddly Inks is gearing up for a big birthday celebration!!!  You should really check it out!

So, without further ado, here is my birthday card for Christy!  This is their Challenge for this week, see it here!

 This is Wryn and her little buddy Emmy!  I want to pinch their little cheeks!

I decided to use very light colors on these girls, that is something I don't normally do.  The paper is from American Crafts Dear Lizzy pad.  The banner was from Recollections, I've had it foreeeevveeer!  Lots of sewing and kraft paper.

Here's my card.

This is Flirty Edward from TGF's Roll Call Kit. (didn't really play-up the Edward thing.)

This was an interesting sketch!  I'm not even going to tell you how much patterned paper I wasted trying to make my triangles. (didn't make the darn card perfectly square!)  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Life of the Party pad.  I used corrugated paper to make it more masculine, and used twine for my embellishments.  The stamps for the sentiment are from TGF's Lucky Bunnies set.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh so sweet! I LOVE the light colors! Looks great. I need to get me some lighter shades of Copics. All my coloring is bright. I really love the softness. Great job! :)
