Happy World Cardmaking Day - Post #3

Hello there blog friends! I'm back with my third and final post for the a2z Scrapbooking Blog Challenge in celebration of World Cardmaking Day! As I mentioned in my previous posts, a2z will be sponsoring 3 Challenges today...one at 8:00 am EST, one at 12:00 pm EST, and the last one at 5:00 pm EST. You will have until next Sunday, October 12th at 11: 55 pm to submit your entries.

Each person who plays has a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the a2z Store per challenge! In addition, a store discount of 20% will be in effect until Monday by using this discount code: WCMDSALE

For this challenge, the theme is 'Anything but a Card'! You can make a tag, a mini album, a scrapbook page...whatever you like! I have posted a tag on the a2z Blog, and would like to share it with you here as well:



So, for my tag I stamped and die cut the butterfly from the 'Butterfly and Flower' stamp set, and colored it with Copic markers. I added a sentiment from the 'Things we Love' stamp set, a thin strip of glitter paper along the bottom, and some splatters with my Shimmer Spray. With a few gems and some twine, I was finished!

I know there are a lot of fun challenges and blog hops to celebrate World Cardmaking Day, and I hope everyone is having a great time! Don't forget to stop over to the a2z Scrapbooking Blog to see all the beautiful projects by my fellow team mates, and hopefully you'll be inspired to create a card or tag for one of our challenges!

Have a great evening, and thanks so much for stopping by ~

Looks like you had a blast on WCMD, I don't even think I made it to ink that day, but I did every other day around it, does that count? Your shading is perfect on this sweet butterfly, and for some reason every thing I'm touching is turning 'coral' at the moment, Great colour too!
