Optional work day? Well, there's a no-brainer!

Especially when there are challenges requiring my attention! (Or, so I tell myself...)

Verve is having a release party today! They've got some sneak peeks of their Spring releases, and challenges every hour! I played along with the CAS challenge - create a card using flowers, and came up with this:

The background is stamped using CHF backgrounder, Pinwheel, stamped with Adirondack Watermelon. I heat-embossed the flowers (a Verve stamp) on black CS using Tinsel embossing powder. The ribbon is silver grossgrain and Paper Studios pink ric-rac.

Once I get back from taking AJ to Tae-Kwon Do, I'll see what other challenges are waiting!

I also got a couple of cards done with the sketch at Mojo Monday:

This stamp is from Line of Pansies from Mo's Digital Pencil. Two bucks! No shipping! How's that for keeping it on the shoestring? The crazy green lace is something I found on sale at Ellen Hutson.

I tried to do something a little more masculine with the color challenge at SCS:

I'm not so crazy about it, but AJ likes it,

Anyway, time to get out the door! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi there Elizabeth!
    You are on quite the card roll!
    I like the pansy card, especially. It's pretty.
    And, you may not be sure about that last card, but I think it's nice. Masculine cards are always so hard.

    By the way, thanks for the invitation to stop by your blog!
