Paper Hugs and Die Cut Dreams

The challenge is clear.....

I received a message on my phone at 3:38 this morning telling me there was a challenge on the Twiddleybitz DT website...and you know how I love a challenge!! I figured if the message came in at 3:38 am it was really important (either that or the message came from Australia and we have a 14 hour time difference!)



Anyway- the challenge over there is to make a card using acetate (and Twiddleybitz if you have some). Luckily, I happen to have these butterflies that were sent to me by somebody special (Hi Sherry!!)

So here's my card, and I was impressed that my photography skills were good enough so that you can actually see the acetate!

Now there was also a challenge over at the Corrosive Challenge Blog to make a card using the Sentiment as your focal image - you can stamp a background, but no stamped images. Now, I am not 100% sure this qualifies, but here's my entry anyway.

Over at Colour Create, the challenge is black, white and pink - a combination which I obviously love!! I think is a beautiful combo so I had no problem working with these colors - and I do LOVE the way it came out.



Last but certainly not least, Danni's Flutterby Challenge was to use a butterfly and die cuts! The "flourishes" are Spellbinder dies. I am not 100% sure of the name of the set, but I did purchase it at CropStop.com. Also, the main panels are cut from Nestibilites Curved Rectangles.

As always, thanks for visiting! Hope to see you back again soon.
