Believe" and I added a bunch of flowers since they were prominently featured in the photo. The flowers are a combination of Primas and Recollections, all from Michael's. I also added a few punched swirls. The sentiment panel was cut out with Nesties and I sponged around the edges with Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Inks. I used a MS leaf punch and sponged the edges of the leaves with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The first card also fits HYCCT08 challenge to use flowers. It also fits ODBDSLC32 to use leaves, but I don't have a lot of leaves on this card, and I didn't use ODBD stamps, so I made another card. :)
My second card also fits 2 challenges, ODBDSLC32 and HYCCT04. The HYCCT challenge was four by four. Use a total of 4 layers of papers and then 4 different embellishments. The dp is "Jovial" from Basic Grey. It has a couple of different leaves in the design. I layered the dp on some red (layers 1 and 2) and then the mat and the stamped image are layers 3 and 4. For the 4 embellishments, I used white satin ribbon tied with my Bow Easy, a red rose, a pine needle border punched with a MS border punch, and a snowflake that I have had for ages. I used "Sing for Joy" by ODBD and colored the cardinal with Copic markers.
That's it for tonight. I'm hoping to find some time over the weekend to really get going on the HYCCT challenges. It's a worthy cause, and if that wasn't enough incentive, there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs!
May you be richly blessed! Thanks for stopping to visit my blog!
Edited to add: I'm so excited to write that my cardinal card was chosen as one of the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge Award! Thank you!
