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!

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.
