Papertrey Ink's April Blog Hop

I so am happy to have found the time to join in with Papertrey Ink's blog hop this month!  This month they challenged us to make a card using this very inspiring photo as a jumping off point.

And here is the card I created...

I was inspired by the roses and the aqua blues in the inspiration photo (I was also inspired by the pinks, but I needed to use the K&C epoxy element for another card challenge I'm doing for Craft Warehouse's stamp club so I went with coral colors for my accent color).  ;)

A "Carefree" Authentique Layout...

I had the pleasure of getting to play with Authentique's latest "Carefree" line a bit early!  Earlier in the month I had so much fun attending a crop to meet all the Craft Warehouse design team members from present and past.  During that time Elizabeth Wiederspohn brought us all some goodies that Authentique had generously shared with us!

Here is what I created...
The butterflies were handcut from a piece of patterned paper and then dressed up with Ranger's black enamel at the antenna and some diamond stickels on the wings.  I also used some glossy accents on my diecut "34" to tie it in with the glossy thickers in the title.  :)
Make sure to check over at Authentique's blog to see more of this collection here and thanks for stopping by!  :)

Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge #61

I was really inspired this morning by Dawn McVey's Make It Monday video and challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog here.  She challenged anyone who wanted to play along to create flowers out of papertrey ink products that aren't normally intended to be flowers.  I started going through my dies and stamps and these bunny ear stamps and dies immediately caught my eye as the perfect flower petals.

Here is the flower and card I created with the bunny ears...
