Colour Create and LOTV Challenges!

Hello there! Did everyone go get the Lili of the Valley stamps they wanted?  Which ones are your favorites?

Today I have two challenge cards to share with you.  First, I have my Colour Create card.

 My sweet friend Di has chosen the colors, BROWN, OLIVE, BLACK AND CREAM with the extra option being LEAVES.  These are wonderful colors to work with, especially if you are doing a boy card!!!  Our sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking & More.  It is two embossing folders from Sizzix.

 The image I used is called "LUCKY CATS".  The stamp made its' debut yesterday at the Lili of the Valley Store.  I colored it with distressed inks and used lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This will be my last card as a Colour Create Design Team member.  I have enjoyed being on the team with such wonderful friends and will still be entering the challenges on the other side of Mr. Linky, as Sharon says. haha! It has been a pleasure working with you girls!!!!!


My next card is for the Lili of the Valley Challenge.  This weeks' theme is "SAY IT WITH FLOWERS" we want to see lots of flowers on your cards.  I for sure did not have a problem with that!!! haha!  Our sponsor this week is The Ribbon Girl!

 This image is called "GIFT WRAPPED".  I am so lovin these bunnies!  I colored this one with copics and the border is from Crealies.  My paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I just created a little different look with them.  Great minds think alike because my friend Jane did a wonderful tutorial on them HERE.  My ribbon is Vintage Seam Binding from Wild Orchid Crafts also.

That's about it for me today!  I hope you will have a chance to stop by and check out all the design teams cards and join in on these two challenges!  I will be back tomorrow with my Just Magnolia card!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit me!

Hugs, Dena
