July Challenge Cards

Happy Saturday!  It's a hot one today, but at least it is sunny and there is a little breeze every now and again :)

Here are the cards we made using the challenge Regina created.  The challenge:

 First up, we have Regina's adorable card!  How cute is this?  I love the colors and all of the embellishments and layers on this card.  It's wonderful!  To read more about this adorable card and to see more of Regina's amazing creations, please visit her blog here:
 Next, we have Michelle's oh-so-cute birthday card!  Look how fun this card is!  Who wouldn't feel like a kid receiving this fun card?  I love the pendant with the different ice creams and the funky background.  The balloons are the perfect focal point.  Very fun, Michelle!
 My sister Debbie joined us again this month and she and her Sister in Stamping (see card below) used our challenge for their weekly post!  You can read more about their weekly posts and see their fabulous creations on their Sisters In Stamping website here.

I love the colors Debbie used on this card and that flower just pops right off the card!  The small banner punched pieces are just too cute!  To read more about Debbie's card, please visit her amazing blog here.
 Next up is Rachel Yurkanin's card - how cute is this?  I can't even imagine how long it took to cut out those images, but it is super cute.  This would be a great birthday card for a boy, no?  To read more about this card, please visit Rachel's blog here.

Last up is my card.  I must have been feeling the Maritime love like Rachel!   I flipped the sketch upside down so that I could create the "waves" with a scrap piece of paper.  I pretty much only used this Maritime DSP for this card.  I only stamped the happy birthday sentiment.  I love DSP and this was a great challenge for me - it goes to show that you don't always have to stamp.  Many of the papers lend themselves to layers and creations that need nothing else!

Thanks for another great challenge, Regina!  Looking forward to the next one :)

Thank you for looking!  Have a wonderful day and rest of the weekend!
