Catching up with Challenges

Here's my card for this week's Merry Monday #40 sketch challenge. I used some cherry cobbler and a scrap of tan cardstock along with a Hero Arts sentiment. The background was done with the Sizzix Snowglobe ef and the sentiment panel was done with a SB labels eighteen die. Ribbon was from my LSS.



This card meets 3 challenges: The CASology week #18 which is "orange," The MFP Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #132 to use ric-rac, and the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #5. I die cut some hearts using a SNSS die and drew the lines they're hanging on with a black marker, adhered the ric-rac, and stamped a sentiment from the MFP Thankful Mums and Pumpkins stamp set.





Lastly, I made this card for the OWH Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown to create a card with red, white, & blue. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, and the red panel was embossed with a HA/Sizzix zig-zag ef, while the navy panel was embossed with a CB decorative tiles ef. I added a little piercing around the sentiment panel, and added 2 star brads on the side.

I think I'm caught up on a few challenges now, so on to other things :) Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!

Busy lady! I adore the embossing folder in the first card. Card #2 is so eye catching in that color! Not to mention you are using that heart die that I love. Thanks for recommending it to me. As for #3, how can you go wrong with red, white, and blue! Awesome! I must get on that one!
