Staying cool

It's really hot here today, so I've stayed in and worked on some cards for some challenges. First up is my card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. The challenge is to make something inspired by a Kim Poloson poster. I chose Over the Rainbow III. Here is my card:

Stamp: Flourishes Butterfly Moments
Paper: K&Co. Wild Rasberry
Ink: Colorbox chalk chestnut roan
Tools: Prismacolor pencils, Cuttlebug Victorian corner, Fiskars border punch, small circle punch (hole punch)

I changed the color scheme but used the basic sketch of the poster.

I've also discovered some new challenges and I'm going to post this card in those as well.

Danni's Dreams Flutterby Wednesday -butterfly or fairy

All Sorts - winged

Next I chose to play with the sketch at Taylored Expressions. I used a pink and green color theme for the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge and made a celebration card for Simons Says. To fit the Charisma Cardz challenge I added some rhinestones to my cupcakes. (Click on the links for all the specifics of the challenges.)

Here is my card:

Stamps: Studio G
Paper: K%Co. Wild Raspberry
Tools: Marvy Markers
Accents: Ribbon (Michael's)
