AAA Card Challenge and Papertrey

So, last week I found a new CAS challenge site, AAA Card Challenge!  I popped over to check it out, but unfortunately, the challenge was already closed.  Well, that didn't happen this week!  In fact, one of the Hostesses sent me a free digi download!  Because of her generosity, I made a card using it~

Isn't that sunflower just stunning!  I did cut some of it off with the circle die, but left it as light gray and used colors to off set it.  I water colored my "hello" - loved the end result of the bright colors against the black and gray of the flower.  I did used the AAA Card Challenge #2 Sketch.


I also played in Papertrey's Make It Monday #164; cluster stamping.  I am not real sure about this card, but it is clustered :).

I used one of my new sets, Birthday Bash Sentiments, along with my PTI go-to - Butterfly Dreams.

Another fun day playing in blogland~


Thanks for stopping by~

Very pretty butterflies! I almost pulled them out for my card. It just looks like they are flying up to the sky.

Oh Wow! You've used the digi I just sent out, Ha ha ha. Great use of it girlie! that may be the brightest card I've ever seen. You've recreated the sketch wonderfully, thanks so much for coming back and entering this happy hello card! How are you doing in all this wind in Mesa? My yard furniture has been blown around and fished from the pool so far!
