Card Patterns Challenge # 60

Hello everyone! I'm so excited today as I make this entry...it's another challenge I played along at Card Patterns. I am always looking forward to the new patterns they are offering over at their blog for crafters like us to work our imaginations with.

And also, before I proceed with the card I made, I would just want to say many many thanks to these wonderful ladies who where the first to give some comments on my work (Bundle of Joy). You ladies inspired me more to ransack my supplies and dive into creating more cards...Thanks a lot!

Now, let's talk crafty business...The patterns to be used for this week's challenge is this....



And Here is my baby....


I like the color combo i used in this particular card...I decided, instead of using ribbon for the accent below, I stamped a flourish image tomake it more dramatic. i am recently into using chipboard accent and i love,love,love this particular butterfly accent.

I opt for satin flowers for added texture and a nice little gem brad and sticky pearls to finish.

So that's it! Hope you likemy work..can't wait for the next pattern.

Card Patterns challenge # 59

Hello everyone! I know I've been away for a while...We had a two-week vacation in my in-laws and I  wasn't able to log in and make some updates...so as a comeback, I decided to join this challenge over at Card Patterns..I just recently discovered this wonderful site and got inspired at their challenge. They issue a weekly challenge at their blog, so if you are looking for creative umph...I suggest you check out their blog....

The pattern to follow is very simple yet many creative possibilities to do with it..here it is..



I decided to make something that is fast and easy to make since, I just saw the challenge a day before the deadline...talk about cramping! heh! But, anyway...ienjoyed the process...and I am used to last minute preparations. So here is the card I made....


This card is intended for a new baby boy and look how all those colors come together to give the feel of sweetness of a baby boy. Well, there it is! I hope liked it...till the next challenge! thanks for dropping by....
