Challenged

I was seriously inspired by the new Embellish Magazine challenge today. I also worked in a couple other challenges, like Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, Wee Memories Challenge, the Paper Pretties wednesday challenge and the new Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. The Embellish colors are soft and gorgeous and I had my way with some digital Hero Arts Butterflies & a birthday cupcake too. I'm going to post all 3 cards, which I don't normally do, but they're kind of matchy-matchy. LOL


stamps: hero arts, lawnfawn
card stock: PTI
patterned paper: my mind's eye home 6x6
ink: PTI dark chocolate, hero arts soft pool shadow ink
tools: cuttlebug, spellbinders, fiskars edge punch, corner chomper
accessories: ranger stickles crystal glitter, PTI buttons, ecru crochet cotton, may arts ribbon
