Hello, Sweet Friend ~ You're So Sweet!

Hello there, blog friends! I'm back to share two cards I created for a few of my favorite challenges. First up is the CAS Watercolor and CAS Mix Up Challenges.

So, it's a Butterfly for CAS Watercolor and Stamping, Tissue Paper, and stenciling for CAS Mix Up! 

Last week I submitted a card for both challenges, and I created a few extra panels using the Tissue Paper Technique. For this card, I used one of those panels to die cut the butterfly, and I love how it turned out! Check out Loll's video tutorial ~ It's a lot of fun and the results are amazing ~
- Stamping: Sentiment
- Tissue Paper: Butterfly
- My Choice: Stenciling

By the way, if you haven't played along in these challenges you're missing out! Loll and Bonnie always come up with the most interesting and 'challenging' ideas...Check them out!


My 2nd card is for CAS(E) This Sketch and CAS on Friday Challenges (Primary Colors):

I'm always late to the party, so this is a new set for me and I couldn't wait to ink it up...I hope it's ok that I added orange to his beak as it is not a primary color :)

I gave up Inlinkz since they switched over to a new program, so I'll be adding my products at the end of each blog post...if you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know in the comments ~
