Saturday Challenges

Once again, there are some very inspiring challenges out there in blogland today, and once again, I have decided to play in them :).

I entered this card into Dynamic Duo #49 - gray and black, and Addicted to CAS #11 - flower.  During my perusing blogland today, I came across a paper pieced flower and really loved the look.  Using the stunning rose from Inspired By Stamping Elegant Flowers, I stamped the image with Versamark, embossed with clear powder on black card stock and then fussy cut it. My sentiment is also from IBS, Big Notes III.


For this next card, I am joining in with Runway Inspired #34 and Fusion #3.  Both of these challenges are color [so I might be eliminated], but I still had fun playing. This is my first time playing in the Runway Inspired Challenge.

Another card for my son's graduation [from Navy Boot Camp] next Friday! [I am so excited to see him - its been 8 weeks!]  I used GKD Pretty Patterns for my bg, PTI Fancy Flourishes [and die], and Dare 2B Artzy, You. I am also entering this in the CASology #40 - Word

Alrighty then - another fun morning of creating for challenges. Thanks sites and Teams for the inspiration.
