Your Own Kind Of Wonderful



I was playing around with the March Stamp of the Month, called Choose Happy and a set called Your Own Kind Of Wonderful. When I realized that the colors I used are ones my Granddaughter likes, I decided to make this card for Mya's Birthday. 

I used the CTMH Floral Embossing Folder for the Pink Background. 

I cut the corner flourish element from the CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy

The two butterflies are from Your Kind of Wonderful and the stamped oval and the sentiments are from the March Stamp of the Month, Choose Happy. 

The butterfly and the oval were colored with ShinHan Alcohol Markers.

The starting inspiration for this card started with a sketch from The Sketch File.

Other Challenges for this card:
Sister Act - Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks - Things with wings
Moving along with the times - Pink / Lilac / and or Butterflies
Southern Girls - Winged Things

Love Ya Silly - Birthday



I needed a Birthday in a hurry and the first stamp set I found in my stash was this CTMH Set called Love Ya Silly. Even thought the sentiments are geared towards a valentine, I just used the images and turned it into a cute Birthday card for a little boy's 7th Birthday. 
The sentiments came from the Perfect Fit Birthday Stamp Set

The inspiration for the card started with a sketch from The Sketch Aunts. I just turned it on it's side. 

I started with the sketch and the Confetti Wishes Paper Pack.  I then used inks from the color pallet of the paper which is Pacifica, Pear, Thistle and Canary.
