Blog Group & Twisted Thursday Cards

Happy Thursday Everyone!
I have a couple of cards for you today....nothing like a fun morning of stampin' right?!! My first card above is for the SU! Blog group that I'm in. Our challenge was to make a monochromatic card & do believe that I accomplished that with my uberly PINK creation! I couldn't think of any other color to use but I do like the final result...it's just really PINK LOL!!!

This creation is for the Twisted Thursday Challenge. I love the sketch that was provided & the twist for this week was to use the colors of pink--*gasp*, purple & green.....not bad and I LOVE the final result---although I feel I should've sponged some of that white space LOL!! I also jumped at the opportunity to use my butterfly die---love that thing---and textured them....can't have non-textured butterflies you know!! Thank you ladies for another fun challenge and I'm looking forward to the next one!

I'll be working on my Etsy card this afternoon.....I'm looking forward to more stampin' time!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
TTFN,
Hugs,

  20. I love the way you used the pearls on the butterflies. It gives the card a very elegant look.

  21. Jackie I would never have thought of pink for the monochrome with that stamp - but it REALLY works doesn't it?

    I used that stamp to decorate any envelope for an Easter card, (not going through the post). Did it in Mellow Moss - it just works in every color.

    Happy Easter to you and yours.
