Time Out Challenges #83, Happy Little Stampers May Challenge: Anything Goes with Dies and a Card for As You See It Challenge #149

Happy Monday!! Just popping in with two cards that I created this weekend for three challenges.

I made this first card for a co-worker who had surgery last week.

The inspiration for this card was Hannelie's card from Time Out Challenges #83. I mimicked her blending that she did on her card and used black and white flowers like she did.

I am also playing with Happy Little Stampers May: Anything Goes With Dies.

I used a dies by PaperTrey Ink for the frame and the stamped flowers.

A little simpler then my usual style but I like how it came out. I also used some scraps up, like the frame, that I had die cut to make sure the die worked. Am I crazy for doing that?

I will be sending this card out with some magazines and a GC for iTunes as a little pick me up.

My second card I created for "As You See It Challenge #149." I flipped the sketch below for my card.

And here is my creation:

The three elements are the hedgehog, the tree stump and the mushroom together. I know this is a bit of a stretch but it is "as you see it!"

I used used Distress Ink in two colors for the blended background. Instead of a banner, I used a die cut word covered in clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle and Glossy Accents.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a fabulous day!!
