Vera’s View Challenge

When I saw this inspiration photo at the right,
for Vera's View Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards, I know I want to play.  But there's so many pretty elements in the photo, I couldn't decide what to do.  But finally I picked one thing (okay two) to focus on.  I really like the cupcake that's top with the pale green flowers and I love the subtle wood grain background.  So, I took my butterfly punch and punched out a bunch of butterflies using very pale green paper and glue them to a white scallop chip board, then mount on distressed woodgrain pp.  I had so much fun doing that part, I didn't even think about stamping!  Well I managed to stamp a sentiment, but it's really subtle.  Could you spot it on my card?  I'll give you a hint, it's in French.

Here's another view, photo take during daytime,
I think it show the colour of the butterflies much better. 

Card base: BazzillBasic card stock (Green Tea)
Paper pattern: Studio Calico (Classic Calico Collection Vol. 1 - Woodgrain One)
3 inch white scallop chip board
Mini pearl
Lace ribbon
Ink: Ranger Distress (Antique Linen, Old Paper); ColorBox pigment (Frost White)
Embossing pearl: Ranger (Pearl Blue)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day.

PS:  the sentiment is "Meilleurs Souhaits" located at the lower left corner.  It means Best Wishes.

Shopping with Virginia & Moxie Fab Challenge

No I didn't really go shopping with Virginia. :(  But it would be nice. :)  I was reading her blog, Yes, Virginia the other day and she was Guest Blogger for Do More With Less, and she shared something fun and inspirational.  Want to know what I am talking about, check it out HERE.  Friday is the last day!

Hello there, a quick post.  I made a little card for the current Playing in Paradise challenge, theme is Graduation/Encouragement.  I thought the Hero Arts Balloon Ride stamp really fits my sentiment.  Don't you think?

I stamped Balloon Ride with Tuxedo Black on white card stock, colour with Prisma Color pencils, then sponged some Broken China on top of card (after masked the coloured balloons).  Trim and adhere to green card base.  The banner is computer generated, cut out, mount on green card stock then trimmed and adhered as shown.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the day.

Interactive Balloon

It's Friday yay!!  Made a card for a special someone who's birthday is tomorrow.  Shhh.. would you keep it a secret, it's a surprise for him.  Here's my card:

If you pull the banner tag, the balloon flips open to the left and a message is revealed.  I am entering it to the Hero Arts' May Challenge, the theme is: Birthday and colour challenge, and technique:  interactive card.

What do you think?  Do you want to see it in action?  Check the video clip. 

All stamps are from Hero Arts (CG448 Balloon Ride, AC001 Untitled Postmark).
