Two Friends Kit Challenge!

Regs picked up one of theses Kit Challenges for me at Two Friends... and so before they packed up my basement for the new carpet I decided to pump it out!
I used some of everything in the kit and all I added was a scrap piece of ribbon, ink, a brad and some liquid pearls. Oh and how could I forget... a little water on the edges of the polka dot paper and on the flowers of course, loving the wet scrunched up paper! :) The first time I tried wetting my paper is... HERE!

A little close up to show the dimension and the clear buttons that I put paper under! :)

Stuff... Cardstock - Prizm, Pattern Paper - Scenic Route, Tags - MME, Ribbon - Stampin Up,
the rest I have no idea! :)

Thank You Card Set!

Finally this is my altered project for my DT work for May! I had the baby boy line for Little yellow bicycle and it is so cute! I also had more fun playing with my Reuse QuicKutz set.
So in love with it!
I basically made a little 3x3 card set then a shallow box to hold then, next I used a piece of vellum to coover the top of the cards and then a sleeve to keep everything together.

This is with the sleeve and vellum cover off.

This is all the little cards. Stuff...

Papertrey Ink Spring Fling Challenge!

OK... so this inspiration photo is so pretty but it is also the one I would normally find toughest to translate into a card. So I definitely had to pick it!

Here is my card...
you should click on it for a closer up because the bloom has that flower soft on it! So pretty! And so soften the look of the stamped images, I dipped a small paint drush in the Fresh Snow ink and swiped it over that section!
I also made my ribbon edges frey... GASP, I know!
Hope you like!
Stuff... All Papertrey Ink except the flower soft!
