Music challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I had an ATC card that I made for a challenge in our ATC club awhile back and this was my "will it work card." I decided to use it for this challenge and make it into a card. I clear heat embossed the music notes and used the Stamping Up photo corner punch, and the background is from Cuttlebug dry emboss folder. Used brads and button parts for corner.

Stamping 411 Challenge sketch SSC136
Stamping 411 SSC136 sketch challenge. I used designer paper and fussy cut out the body to give it some personality. I added the ladybugs on the side just to keep with the bug theme. I also scored the card across the top and along the right side. I made some lines from the ladybugs to give it a flight look but they really don't show up too good. The clouds are from an x-ray film I cut to make a template in one piece with different rounded areas I just lay it down and using a sponge work out from template and move around to get the look I want. I like it better than a stamp although I have used stamps for some cards but I keep coming back to the film.

Challenge for Our Creative Corner - using blues and greens two colors I love together. I had fun playing and of course had to add bling. The button on the ribbon needed some bling so I used diamond glaze and topped with some beads of blues and greens to give it some interest.

This card is for two challenges..First one being Kelly Jo's Color Chef #34 using White, Black, Yellow. I had fun with just these colors, using SU papers, and magenta stamp. The second challenge is for TSG #37 using three embellishments. I used the black/white ribbon, the little flower I made using some tear drop metal pieces and topped with a half pearl button, and the third embellishments was taking three button and of different colors and stacking them and connecting with floss.

Made this card for the Scrap challenge from My Pink Stamper. I have used the two DS papers in different cards in the past and also had the tulip stamped and setting around along with the card stock from half of another card so the whole card is from scraps and of course added bling... Love this tulip.
Been home sick all week so decided to take some old cards that I had made but never really liked and revamp -this one was really washed out so recolored (wish I had some copic's) and added little bling -not too bad.
Once again blah, but not too bad so just added leaves and some plastic disks DH saved for me just to add interest.
Another old card - I love this saying and re-stamped the zebra and added the pink and bling and love the way it came out.
Ok this is the last one that I redid or touched up -I added the U and the arrow and did some sponging. Looks better and not so plain.

Color Inspiration #57 from Kristina - kwernerdesign blog. Thought this look good enough for a birthday card for my grandson in April. DH said pink - not good for a boy but I told him it's coral which it is. What do you think?
TSG 35 Shape card challenge. I got this shape from a dear friend and stamp buddy Karen quite awhile back. Glad to be able to put this shape to good use again. Stamps are by TSG's who are awesome people. This card will fit into business envelope but I also have a template for an envelope that is exactly like card.
