Gotta Love Challenges!

I received some emails with more challenges that sounded like fun so, I took the time to play along.

The Cutting Edge is an up and coming challenge -- its all about dies.  I love that.  They are running a challenge for a Guest Designer and we are to create a card being inspired by the Team's cards.

 
Though this is a small photo [bigger one is over on their blog], I was inspired by the diagonal strips, [I used Washi Tape die-namicss from MFT], and the sun in a couple of the cards, [I used a flower die-namic for my sun from MFT Layered Rose].  The bike and triangle are from Hero Arts, On The Go Bike.  I am also entering this into the Paper Crafting Challenge; In Summer.  I think my card screams summer.

I also created a card for Avery Elle Heart U Challenge; DYI Background

I used the fun Avery Elle stamp set, Petals & Stems.  I cut my word with my Silhouette.
I am hoping my stamped tag background works for the challenge.  Either way, I have another "gift" card as the tag comes off for the recipient to use as a bookmark.  EDITED:  I was encouraged to enter this into the other new challenge Tag It.  This one sounds like its gonna be fun! :) - Thanks Kim ;)


Thanks for stopping by~
