Tulip Time

I have not entered a challenge for a long time but I got these tulip stamps and dies from PTI a few weeks ago. Of course, when you get a new toy you have to play so I made tulips in almost every shade of the rainbow and tucked them in a storage bag. I had some design team challenges where I used the Sue Wilson Just a Note and some greenery left over from my card class so when I looked at the samples of the PTI challenge I realized that what I had on hand would fit the challenge. The only thing I had to do to make the card was cut some frames. The background paper in from one of the PTI paper packs in Harvest gold. I will enter this in the  PTI Make it Monday A-la-Carte challenge.
I chose Background Building With Frames with Amy Sheffer. 

Dies R Us Winter Blues

A new challenge called Winter Blues begins today at Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  For this challenge, I decided to make a shaker card using some pretty blue glitter paper. I sponged a background using distress inks and masking a circle to create the moon. The  Poppy Stamps House in the Woods was cut  from white card stock. I colored the window and door and placed some acetate behind it and added  a little homemade flower soft for the shaker part. I wish now that I would have added a few sequins. I cut some IO  snow flakes from the same blue glitter paper and added them to the front of the of the raised panel.
