Happy Monday, Merry Monday Challenge and ODBD Challenge

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. My husband was gone all weekend to a Men's Retreat, so it was just me and the dog. But I had lots of time to make cards!! For today I've made another Easter card using DRS Designs lovely Flower Trio (1036K) and Easter sentiment (1029D).

I stamped the image in the center of the white card stock, then used a mask and stamped the image two more times, once to the right and once to the left of the center flowers. I colored the image with copics and then sponged some Bashful Blue around the flowers. I layered the white panel on some yellow card stock and attached it to the pink card. I added a layer of green card stock that was punched with a grass border.  Finally a white layer was punched with the Martha Stewart fence border. I stamped Easter blessings on this layer. A sheer pink ribbon was added before the panel was attached to the card.

Here's a card I made for Lesley's (Always Playing with Paper) weekly Christmas Card Challenge. My husband give me the poinsettia dies for Christmas and I hadn't even opened them yet. So I decided to use them! They make a cute and quick card!! The only stamp on this is DRS Designs Merry Christmas (364B) stamped in Stazon Black on red CS. The dp is from the Paper Studio. I sponged SU real red ink and handsome hunter ink on the flowers and leaves. Rhinestones were added to the flower centers.

I also made a card this weekend for Our Daily Bread Design's challenge to make a card other than the standard square or rectangle. I went with a side step card using ODBD Get Well stamps.

I stamped the sentiment and Bible verse in Memento Cocoa ink. The CS and DP are DCWV. I used a grass border punch on the green CS. For the middle step I added some butterflies punched with a MS punch and some small flowers. Satin ribbon and some half pearls finish it off.

Hope you like these!

Until next time,
