Playing in Challenges

The weather is still crazy hot here [107+] and I'm still in my stamp room.  That said, I am playing in more challenges.

Let's start with Use Your Stuff #450 - triangles, along with Can You Handle the Pressure; embossing with a twist of birds. 

I started by cutting out a triangle and embossing it.  I cut the bird, leaving it white.  [This will make a lovely sympathy card].

Lastly, I added a sentiment [Memory Box Signature Greetings], along with a few pearls.  This CAS card is done, and good for the challenges.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

I went on to play in the AAA Card Challenge #217; Butterflies on 1/9th of card.

I found this perfect embossing folder for the butterfly!  [Yeah, one of those 20+ year old products] - I just hope I hit the 1/9th aspect.  I cut one of the Simon Says Sentiment Strips and kept it very simple to match the CAS card.

Again, this could be used as a sympathy card.  Into my stash it goes. This was a 1st Place Winner.

 

That's it for today!  Thanks Challenges!

Wow, that's hot. I'd hang out inside and craft too. Love your clean and simple style. Thanks for sharing with us at Use Your Stuff

I love the simplicity of your embossed butterfly with the to-the-point sentiment. I think it needs to be a bit smaller to hit the 1/9th mark, but a lovely card all the same. Thanks for joining us at AAA Cards.
