Card Cupids Challenge #17

We have a Spring Themed challenge for you this week! This should be easy for everyone as I am sure we are all busy thinking about flowers, birds and sunshine :o) Even though I live in Southern California, it has not been so sunny here lately...just gloomy rainy days...

I am so super thrilled to share our sponsor this week:
Scrappy Mom's Stamps 
OMG!!! If you have not checked out and already purchased stamps from Scrappy Mom’s, I cannot begin to tell you how amazing these stamps are and they are so reasonably priced! These are must have stamps for any card maker!
One lucky participant in this weeks challenge is going to receive the newly released “Kid’s Incorporated” stamp set!

I had so much fun using this set and I made the sweetest card.
Whatcha think?

Card Cupids Challenge #16

You all are going to *LOVE* this weeks challenge! It is so appropriate for this time of year! The challenge is to create a “Green” card. With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner we thought it would be fun to see what green inspired cards you could come up with! We also have a brand new sponsor this week! Our challenge sponsor this week is Copic!
The winner of this challenge will receive this amazing prize from Copic!

Isn't this a fabulous prize?!?! Copic was kind enough to provide our Design Team with Spica Pens to use on their projects. If you are not familiar with Spica Pens you must check them out! They have such brilliant color and I cannot begin to tell you the amount of glitter they can put on your project!

Here's my "green" card.
I used A Child's Year cartridge for card base & hat.
The sentiment I found online.
I used spica pen (pitch black) on the sentiment & around the clovers.
Now it's your turn to create a "Green" card & join the challenge!!
