April 25

It was a good card day yesterday. Here is a group picture, then I'll break it down per challenge. First I forgot to include a pinwheel card I made...:( It is pretty to!
The bottom two and the pink/black one on the right are not for challenges. Well, the brown one could be OWH mid week monochromatic challenges as well as the Sunday's sketch challenge. OK two of them aren't challenge related. I CASEd Dixie on the upper right one.
First challenge...KING Hambo! I didn't have a cuttlebug embossing folder I wanted to use, so I scored the yellow paper on my Martha Stewart scor board in a diamond design. The purple heart button is a glitter button that I sealed with Glossy Accents. Got that tip from Yolanda's blog. Thanks Yolanda!!
The next challenge is for D2D- Bullfrogs and Butterflies. When I first saw this, I thought blue and yellow for the flowers. Why? I don't know, it kinda looks "Dutch" to me, now that it's done. But I like it.  I added the corner flowers also included in the set, FREE, if you played in the progressive challenge last week. Mr Bull has googley eyes, the two big flowers have bling in the middle, the corner flowers have glossy accent and I added a blue butterfly button.
Here's hoping we all don't float away in the mid west area.
Happy Crafting.

  2. You sure got a lot of cards done. I think the blue & yellow flowers look fine-not Dutch. I like all the extra flowers you added. Thanks for playing along with us at Designed2Delight. Keep coming back!
