Cheery greeting

papercraft star challenge 52 used this photo for inspiration:

I love these colors they are so bright and cheery. Here is my card:

The starting point was the ribbon from Michael's. The colored papers are all from my scrap file. Butterfly stamp is Inkadinkado and the sentiment from Studio G, both stamped with StazOn black. I colored the butterfly with yellow and orange colored pencils. You can't see it here but I used a clear star gel pen on the trailer lines below the butterfly. Then for a little bling added the 3 blue rhinestones.
I'm hope this card will bring cheer to someone's day.

Play Date Cafe

the play date cafe challenges with this color combo:

Not something I would have thought of but hey that's what challenge means. Out of your comfort zone. Now that I have it completed, I really like the combo. I used the sketch from mojo monday, leaving out a couple of elements. That is what is great about checking out different challenges. You can often use 1 sketch with another's color combo. So here is my card:

The solids are all Bazzil cardstock.
Stamps: Stampendous, PTI (sentiment)
Inks: Studio G gold and StazOn black
Martha Stewart stamp/punch butterfly.
Fiskar edge punch

cas-ualfridays challenge is make a masculine card using kraft paper. My husband really fits the "kraftsman" mold.He is a great handyman. So here is my birthday card for him.

Kraft base of course with Cuttlebug circles IP.
DP and red background paper from TAC--maybe discontinued. I've had it a couple of years.
Sentiment from Michaels (I think). Two "rivets" (since this is in man terms) on each end with twine run through,.
I saw a card on a blog one day with washers. Absolutely knew I should have bookmarked or written it down as I cannot remember the source. Let me know if it was yours. I'd love to give you credit. All these circles reminded me of washers so I ran out to the shop and borrowed 3 small gold ones. I guess it is okay as he will be getting them back.!! Hope you like my masculine card. I know my man will!!
