5 for 5$ Challenge

Welcome back.

If you are looking for the Lily Pad Cards' First Birthday blog hop, click here.

Now onto today's post, since I've discover this fun challenge, I really want to play along.  And finally I found some time and did it!  What challegne is that you say?  Well it's the 5 for 5$ challenge over at Moxie Fab World.  The goal is to make five different cards with less then 5$ dollars worth of material.  Check out the detail here.

Here are my cards:


Here's what I used and the break down:

2.95 Mini stamp set from Technique Tuesday
0.12 half of BoBunny double sided pattern paper on sale (0.23 / 2)
0.70 Five card base plus envelope (50 for 7.00, each at 0.14)
0.04 One CH155 Olive green gem (0.04 each)
0.03 Three mini clear gem (0.01 each)
0.18 Nine mini white pearl (0.02 each)
0.05 twine
0.00 strips of colour card stock scraps
4.07 Total

I think I did well.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Easter, and have a great weekend.
