A Few Challenges

I saw a few fun challenges today that I wanted to play in......

Even though I am on the Muse Team, we don't make sample cards.  I really love this challenge, and I adore the card Therese made this week.  The fun circle flowers have always been a favorite of mine, so I had to pull out my Inkadinkado set, The Garden Variety, to play along!  I added in some awesome gold shiny paper, and gold embossing, which makes me eligible for Shopping Our Stash; shiny and Catherine & Cathy Create; gold. My sentiment is from Hero Arts, Essential Messages.


I watched the Glitter & Stencil Technique video that Jennifer McGuire had today over at Simon Says.  It looked so fun that I had to try it out.  The one lesson I learned - make sure your stencil is clean from the previous use.  Yeah, so for my 2nd attempt.....

 Success!  I am entering this into the Ribbon Carousel Challenge; washi tape. I stacked my You 6 times for added depth, and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday, Fabulous.

Well, I had some serious fun today!


Thanks for stopping by~

I always love seeing a layout used two different ways, it speaks to the versatility of the design which I think is something that is the hallmark of a good design!

Oh you're so good - watching the video and then getting right to it. It sure looks like a fun (and totally messy) technique. Love this blue beaut.
