Carol's Birthday

I love purple and so does a special friend of mine so I made this for her birthday.  The paper is from ODB.  the sentiment is IO and flower dies are Spellbinders bitty blossoms the leafy flourishes are from Die-Namites. Tucked in the corner is part of the hydrandgia die from IO.  I really like how it worked and will use this idea again.  It make a nice filler and it gives me another way to use the die. 

I will enter this in the following challenges Dies R Us Monochromatic

Through My Window 2

I am taking inspiration from my friend, Verna.  I had scraps of paper left over from yesterday's card and was going to put them in my scrap box...but then I thought why not make another card. Glued the pieces on some black card and then  I sponged another scene using a beach set that I bought from Flourishes years ago. Popped it behind the Madison window and wallah a second card in minutes.

Scrappy Land  Anything Goes

Through my Window

My friend,Donna Phelan,is hosting the challenge at Stamp TV this week so I made this card for  What Shell we Create? .  I stamped some kraft card with Melanie Muenchinger's Year of Borders in white, bleached the inside and the water colored the bleached part with blue.  The bottom portion is scored on my Score Pal and the  inked with  distress inks.  The light house scene  is from By the Sea by Theresa Momber and the window is from Poppy Stamps. Lately I have been challenging mysel to create cards that work for more than one challenge so I will enter this in the follow challenges
