Lawnscaping Challenge Card

Another card to share today!

I have a friend getting married soon and I want to make her a big batch of thank you cards to use after the big day. I figured, why not mix it up and use a few challenge blogs to inspire the design, right?

Monochromatic.....trickier than I thought. I immediately picked pink....duh. But, how to make the card interesting and not just a bunch of pink papers stuck together. I layered a scrap of pink vellum over some patterned paper and create a pocket....filled with pink sequins and confetti. Ever since I saw this card by Kristina Werner I have wanted to try a little nail polish on a card. True fact-I have more nail polish than one person should. I just swiped a bit of a pretty pink-gold before I stamped one of my favorite Lawn Fawn sentiment stamps. ( I swear this picture makes it look way more golden than it does in real life)

This card was pretty simple to make, and I could definitely see making a few more with different color schemes and.....different mail polish backgrounds? lol

Head over to the Lawnscaping Blog, those ladies are a lot of fun!


Simon Says Stamp Best Wishes Card

Hey y'all! One of my favorite on-line stores, Simon Says Stamp recently held a blog hop to celebrate a month long anniversary party. You can see all about Stamptember here. Imagine my surprise when my name was randomly picked for a box full of Simon Says Stamp goodies.....#WINNING!! Turns out my box was full of supplies that made up their monthly stamp kit. It was all so fun, I couldn't wait to play with it. 

I made this card to enter in Simon's Wednesday Challenge Blog. I thought it would be fun to use my newest, favoritest Simon products, and send them a great big online Thank you! he only thing not included int he kit, is the sentiment stamp and matching wafer thin die. This set is for sure one of my favorite, most used. I thought they worked perfectly for the overall look of the card.

All supplies are linked below the first picture, thanks for stopping by!
