2 challenge kinda night

Hello Friends, Well here I am, Tuesday and I have actually completed another creation. I had so much fun with this one. I actually completed 2 challenges in one sitting! So the first challenge site, City Crafter challenge Blog, Now this challenge was unique. Each design team member(4 of them) had a supply listed on their blog that you had to use in your creation. Now you didn't have to use all 4 items, You could use only 1 or 2,etc. but you had to use at least 1. The items were, Mist or spray, Embossing of some sort,Pearls and or Circle dies. So, with that being said, I did use all 4. I not only die cut a scallop circle but I also die cut a regular circle in the middle of that scallop one. I also sprayed that circle with a smooch spritz sparkle.   I also used a chevron embossing folder on the circle. So, that leaves the pearls. I used them on not only the butterfly but also in the center of the 3 little flowers. I really had fun with this one. I just wanted to keep adding stuff! S…

It's Mojo Monday & Spring Break

Happy Spring Break everyone. I have the whole week off and other than trying to get some "Spring Cleaning" in, I am also trying to get just as much creative time in! This feels so nice to not have anything that I "have" to do this week. It's been a long time since that has happened. So, with that being said, Here I have for you a sketch challenge card that I created for Mojo Monday. I love Mojo's challenges. I always find myself getting lost in the sketch. Lovin it!!!  My color scheme was Oranges,Pinks and Yellows. I think this paper line is from Basic Grey. The "Just Because" stamped image is from Stampin Up! and is stamped in Melon Mambo. I also used some orange bling and used a "Darice" embossing folder on the white scallop piece. I roughed up all of the edges of the paper with my distressor. I was going for that shabby chic look. So, that is pretty much the details of my creation. I hope you all enjoy it and I will be back soon to sh…
