Regina's 2nd Challenge Card for July

Please forgive me, Regina.  I had forgotten that you made two lovely cards for this month's challenge! 

Look at this beautiful card.  I really love the way Regina uses color.  The Pacific Point being the main color of this card really makes the other spots of color pop!  I also love that she used the new hexagon punch - can't wait to get that myself!  The way the ribbon is tied, it almost looks like it is pointing to the sentiment, doesn't it?  How neat!  This card is so cute and I know the recipient will be so happy to get it!
Thanks again, Regina!  Can't wait to see what you come up with for next month ;)

July Design Challenge Posts

Happy Weekend!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far. 

This month's challenge was quite a challenge!  I know when I drew the sketch while sitting in an auditorium training, I had some good ideas on how I'd interpret the sketch.  BUT, that was not what happened when it came to create!  I think I was going to do kites for this sketch, but they didn't quite make it onto my card ;)

Here's the sketch:

 First up is my card.  I really like the pendent punch.  I wanted to make a word out of the pendents, but couldn't make it work.  So, I found my little butterfly punch and used it instead :)  I wasn't sure how to use these colors, but the DSP made it easy!  Not much else to say!

Next is Michelle's card.  Wow!  She did a great job with the colors and following the sketch - love the use of the buttons (love buttons!).  The poppy images are beautiful too.  Great card, Michelle; someone will be lucky to receive it!

And finally we have Regina's card.  Isn't this cute? 
She and I must have butterflies on the mind right now with Summer in full swing.  I love how she edged the borders with a marker and used a scallop border and punched holes across the card.  I know she put a lot of work into this card and it is just so bright and summery and makes me smile :)  Thanks, Regina - as always, love your creations!

I can't believe this month is almost over in a few days.  Where is the time going???  Please join us next month as we challenge ourselves again.  Thanks for looking!

Another June Challenge Card!

I have another June challenge card to share!  My sister joined us in our challenge and I'm late getting this posted.  Check out this adorable card she made.  I love the polka dotted paper she used and she added texture to the back piece by running it through an embossing folder.  The ribbon bow adds just the right touch too!  To find out more about this card and to check out more of her gorgeous creations, please visit her blog here.

Debbie, thanks for joining us and hope you'll join us this month too!

To all - have a great day and thanks for looking!
