Another Challenge Card

Debbie created another card for the challenge and used the DSP!  Look how awesome this card is!  I love it!  I really appreciate that she made the main focal point the flower made out of the DSP - very cute.  I would never have thought to do that!   :)  To read more about this card, head on over to her blog and show her some love :)

Thanks for looking and feel free to join in on the challenges with us!

November Challenge - Check!

I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving last week.  It sure was nice to be with family and friends and have some time to relax and craft!  I really enjoyed sitting down and taking a couple days to create again!

Let's get to the challenge - here it is again:

First up is Michelle's awesome card.  Isn't it cute?  I love that she used so many of the different pages of the designer paper.  We both love this paper - it is so great!  Nice job on the framing too, Michelle!  The colored in stamped image is a great one for this challenge.  I like that it is simple, yet makes a bold statement against the papers in the back.  It's just lovely!  To see more of Michelle's creations, please visit her blog here.

Next is my card.  I have been wanting to use this stamp since I bought it last year!  I didn't get a chance to make tags with it, but thought it was perfect for this challenge.  The designer sheet I chose from the pack looks like little Christmas trees to me, so thought it would make a great background for things that would go under the tree!  I colored in the images with my markers to match the colors in the paper.  I also have been wanting to use that luxurious velvet ribbon from last year and finally had a chance - LOL!  It's beautiful and I thought perfect for that open white space that I couldn't leave on the card!

Finally, we have my sister's card.  She made this for me for my recent birthday and I love it!  Isn't that designer paper gorgeous?  It's full of color and beauty and the butterfly she cut out and popped up is such an elegant touch.  I love this card - what a great surprise!  She didn't use the DSP as I don't have a Christmas birthday, but she used the sketch and I just love it!  To see more of Debbie's fantastic cards and projects (she has the best tutorials going right now!), head on over to her blog here.

Well, that's it for another month.  I can't believe we are almost in December!!!!  Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for looking!

November Simply Paper Design Challenge

By this time of year, we are thinking of Christmas cards.  Michelle and I both love the Stampin' Up! designer series paper called "Be of Good Cheer".  So, we decided to incorporate it into our challenge.  Using this sketch and the DSP, design with us!
