The challenge this week over at Peachy Keen is a Sketch w/ a Twist. The twist is you have to use metallic paper, glitter, paint etc. I'm also entering this card into the Tuesday Throwback #46 Challenge. Here is the receipe for my card.

Green CS from Bazzill 5" x 5.75"
Pattern Paper from Colorbok 4.75" x 5.50"
Circles were cut and embossed with Nestabilities. I used Swiss Dots on the Pink circle and pink stickles around the circle.
Duck is a Peachy Keen Stamp colored with copics and I used the masking technique for the flower on his head and also the bowtie. I added Glossy Accents on the flower and bowtie. I also put him on an action wobble. He is so cute.
Flower is Prima, Ribbon & Gold Brads from Michaels
Sentiment is in the same stamp set as the Duck.

Thanks for stopping by. Come again soon. Anne

Mothers Day Challenge

Welcome again to my blog. Mary over at Cardz TV is having another challenge, its a Mother's Day Challenge and the colors are Purple, White, Green and Blue. This is my entry for the challenge.

Purple cardstock 4.25" x 5.50", White Mat 4" x 5.25", Blue pattern paper from Colorbok 3.75" x 5". I cut the Wheelbarrel at 1.50" from Walk in My Garden. The flowers were cut at 3/4" from Creat A Critter and the leaves are a MS Punch. The grass was cut from Plantin Schoolbook at 1" and the fence is also a MS Punch. I stickled the Wheelbarrel and put tiny pearls for the flower centers. The sentiment is from the computer (thought I had a stamp but I didn't LOL) and was cut from a EK Success punch. Hope you like my card. Please stop by again.

Hugs, Anne

We were to create anything Easter related. Here is my card.

The size of the card is 5.25" and its a hexagon shape from Winter Woodlands. I used the hide contour to hide the snowflake cut, then welded the two shapes together on my gypsy. The green hexagon is cut at 4.50" also from the same cartridge and I ran it through the cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. The bunny was cut at 3.50" from Doodlecharms and flocked with MS Flocking Powder and I stickled around the edge of him. The pink flower is from Joannes $1 bin and the flower buttons are also from Joannes. The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin Up. Polka Dot paper is from DCWV Dots,Stripes and Plaids Pack.
