WCMD Fun!

I hope you all had lots of fun on World Card Making Day, I know I did! Friday night I got to do some stamping with friends and then yesterday I enjoyed all the fun games and challenges that SCS, Unity, and Limelight had going on. After I put my boys to bed I worked on 3 of the SCS challenges and thought I would share them with all of you. My first one was for the limited supplies challenge and I am happy with the clean and simple beauty of this card.
Details: SU Blue Bayou & River Rock Cardstock; SU Blue Bayou Ribbon; Unity leaf and sentiment stamps from Gratitude=Joy set; Colorbox Fluid Chalk - Prussian Blue; Making Memories white eyelets (I threaded the ribbon through these...kind of hard to see them in the picture).

For the ways to use it challenge (trees), I used this great Heidi Grace paper and the layout of my card was based off of Limelight's sketch challenge #5. The middle tree is popped up on foam squares and my *giggle sentiment is from Unity's Giggle Grove set. This is definitely a quick and easy card.
Finally, here is my card for the Technique Lovers Challenge, which challenged us to make these fun flowers. To give the flowers some character I tore some of the layers and crumpled others. I really love how they turned out and thought the sentiment needed to have a distressed feel so I tore around the edges of that too. What do you think?

Details for this card: Basic Grey Paper - Boxer Collection; Bazzill Basics Ivy Cardstock; Unity stamp - blossom single; Colorbox fluid chalk - dark brown; Making Memories brown eyelets & large antique copper brads; Offray ribbon

Have a great day!

Love the cards!! I Have to find that leaf in the first card...your cards are amazing!!

Thanks for checking out my blog- you are right those fibers are messy. I have the pink as well, I use them with the lily stamp set, I put her holding a present and put them on a sticky strip behind her....makes for a fun cute girls bday card!! Anyway, enjoy and I will have to keep checking back on your blog :) Come back to mine anytime!
