Poppy Seed Challenge #2

Hello again! Well, I'm into my crafty mood these days and thought, it would be nice to join some online challenges...and one of the challenges I am looking forward to is the Poppy Seed Challenge from Lisa Jhonsons..I like her challenge a lot because she sets up 3 seeds (elements) every challenge, which makes it easy for the participants to create their projects...

Here is the challenge....

And here is my card...

(sorry for the bad image..)
For this card, I thought of using various shades of green..afterall, green is my fave color! I love how it all fell into harmony...For the background, I layered three pieces of paper, two of which came from the same patterned paper and the middle piece was a plain paper which I embossed. I stamped the sentiment in a die cutted tag, adhere a foam flower and an eyelet. For the embossed flower sticker, I used a medium sized button with a pink ricrac through it as the center of the flower...

So, that's it. Hope you like my work..and be one of the Bloomers!

TUESDAY TRIGGER at Moxie Fab World

Hi there everyone! Well, nice to start a new blog here in blogspot...and to start of I decided to post a card I specifically made as an entry to TUESDAY online challenge over at The Moxie Fab World...I've been following this site for a while now, and I must say...they always spark my mind for nice ideas!

For this week's Trigger, the participants are asked to make a project using this picture as inspiration...the texture, colors and themes are all here. Just have to use some creativity to finish a project...

And so...from those lovely colors (notice the design in the pillow)..I come up with this particular card here...

I love how this card turned out to be such a niceone...Notice how the bird made the card alive. I incorporated some handwriting at the stamped sentiment just to give it a more personal touch. And I am now into using this lace ribbon I recently it added softness in the card. And the red satin ribbon just added the needed boosting for color.

Well, that's it! Hope you liked my work...If you have time, please leave a comment. Thanks!
