Cards In Envy DT Project Feb 4

Yeah!!! This is my first Design Team card for Cards In Envy
I am so honored to be in this group. Throughout the month I have seen the photos of other member’s cards come in to our little corner of the internet. HOLY COW! You are going to be so inspired by these ladies! I already am – ten times over. Each month there will be a sketch challenge on the first and another more formula/technique kind of challenge on the 15th. And little ole’ me will have one in each!! There will be winners and blog bragging buttons, too! Please make it a point to check it out, join the site and make a card. There are very few rules but one is that the cards have to be flat enough to send with standard postage. This makes them GREAT challenges to inspire my fellow Operation Write Home card makers. Every single card I have made for these so far, straight to the OWH box…several were made a few times over. This month’s sketch was very round in my eye. Well, you know I LOVE my Kanban card toppers. This was a great way to see some of these in action. I added the pink Recollections bling for the smaller round objects. For the little treat in the lower right hand corner, I didn't want to repeat bling and brads weren't right, either. SO I tore off the corner, grunged that up and let three petals of a paper flower fill that element. Finally, this one just needed to be a little more shabby; I went over the card stock with TH’s tea dye ink. All right – your turn, use this sketch, make a card, post it on Cards In Envy and send it to OWH!!

    1. The swirl bling really catches my eye. I've looked at your site and know I'll gain lots of inspiration from your work. We are going to have a great time on the DT for Cards In Envy! ~ Cissy

  5. I love all the detail you put into your card - the little birds and birdcages, the bling swirl, and the little surprise flower peaking out on the lower corner. Beautiful card!

  6. Beautiful card!! Your design, papers, image and bling all work so beautifully together to create a stunning card. Well done.
