My Creative Time June Challenge

Today I am sharing a card I have made for the challenge over at
We are to create a card or layout using a sketch and color theme.

Here is what I came up with!

The papers I used were Papertrey Ink and Colorbok pattern papers.  One rose is of vellum.  The white card is from Georgia-Pacific.   A little inking around the sentiment with Distress Ink.

MCT Products used:
Rolled Flower Dies-roses
Stitched Leaves Dies
Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies
Surf's Up-surprise flowers
Wow So Many Candles
Gift Card Sentiments
Lowercase Fun Dies

I pretty much chose a neutral background and then made flowers and leaves in the colors needed for the challenge.  I had a lot of fun arranging them and mixing until I was happy with the placement.  Don't you love a good challenge?  I do!  

Thank You for stopping by to take a look!

Masculine Themed Challenge at My Creative Time

There is a fun challenge at My Creative Time...The rules are as follows:

~With Father’s Day this month,today’s challenge is to make a MASCULINE THEMED card, layout, tag OR a 3-D item. Anything “guyish” – manly color palette, favorite sport, dad’s favorite chair, etc

Today I am posting a card that I have made for the challenge.  I started with a white card stock and inked up the sky and sand with the Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background using distress inks.  I stamped the birds with the Lost At Sea stamps.  The anchor and chain were cut with the new Anchor & Heart Dies.  I then cut the "you are" from Speech Bubble Sentiments in black card stock and added the "my anchor" from the Hey Sailor! stamp set.

On the inside I cut the sides of white card stock with the Make A Splash Die.  The sentiments are from Here's Lookin' At You and It's All About You  stamp sets.  I added the smaller anchor from the Anchors & Heart Dies, tied with Timeless Twine in Firecracker.
