I appear to be obsessed with the beautiful rolls of washi tape that PinkFresh Studio has been giving us, and I just ordered and received 2 more of them: Hydrangea and Rose, and Blossoms and Berries. I pulled out an old oval doily die and mixed everything up for today's cards.

I fell in love with Vicky's birds months ago when they were released, and I finally got some to play with! I made a mini slimline card.

Playing again today with some pretty washi tape that is highlighted in gold, so I followed suit and used gold sentiments. These washi tapes come with a large focal point, like a wreath or a bouquet, plus 6 or so smaller images that can be used alone or layered over the focal point. I chose those smaller images for my cards today, and mixed them with a variety of supplies from lots of companies.
supplies: white, Doll Pink, and Metallic Gold cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio English Garden washi, PTI (retired) mix & mat Scallops dies, Simon Happy Birthday dies, adhesive squares to lift up focal panel
I hadn't played with this pretty mix & mat scallops set for a long time. It has a lovely floral lace center, plus stitching and a scalloped border. Then I proceeded to cover up most of it with the little rose bouquets! As I said, because the washi highlights the designs with gold, I added a metallic gold sentiment die, then lifted that whole panel above the card base.
My next cards brings in my favorite gingham motif, using a peachy color that matches these florals from the Joyful Bouquet washi.

I recently grabbed the Small Butterflies stamps and stencils that I've been wanting, and used them to make some birthday cards. When I use this Big Birthday Wishes die, I always get a two-fer! You can never have too many birthday cards, right?

The colors on today's card are pleasing to me; I don't use enough of either of these colors of lavender or yellow.

I wanted to make sure that you knew that Simon Says Stamp is having a month-long Kid's Challenge! We do this every year to give our young designers out there the spotlight.
The theme is Anything Goes with SPARKLE and/or Shine. It's open to all children between the ages of 2 and 16. You are allowed to help them a little bit, if necessary, but we really want them to create something all by themselves.
This challenge is open for CHILDREN ONLY, and any entry from anyone over the age of 16 will be deleted. Please make sure to add the child's age along with his/her name when you post your entry.
