Two Down....

...and I couldn't even begin to tell you how many to go! There are so many challenges out there - I don't even know where to begin!

This card is another I was able to make for two different challenges. The first is the Etsy Inspired Challenge over on Ashley's blog. The Etsy Shop this week is called Make Mine Mud! (Love the name). Anyway - it's filled with all sorts of cute pottery items. I actually chose two items for inspiration. Here they are:




Although I am sure it was not her intention - the first one gave me the "layout" of the card, the second one gave me the color pallette. So here's the card:



The details are relatively basic - that wonderful sentiment is from Verve (I LOVE their sentiments!!), flowers are Prima, ribbon is American Crafts, and the sugar coated brads are Doodlebug!


So, onto the second challenge this card is for. I found a new challenge blog called, Scrappy Frogs - now you HAVE to just love the name if nothing else! Their inspiration was this:



The new slice machine! Now - I actually have no urge to purchase one of these - but it worked right into my color scheme! Gotta love it when that happens.

Another important detail I almost forgot to mention, if you go to Make Mine Mud and make a purchase and mention the Etsy Inspired Challenge, she's give you a FREE pendant!!! Can't beat that!


So that's my double for today. Back to the shed to see what I create next!! As always, thanks for stopping by!!

This is really beautiful! I like the colors you used and I really really like how you used the flowers! Why didn't I think of that? Awesome work!
