Three in One

There were quite a few challenges that I really loved this week! Be sure to scroll down to the previous two posts for some other techniques and ideas. I put three cards in one on this post, and this will end my crafting day. When it's cold out, I can't think of anything better to do!!

The first card is a bit of an Asian theme using my CTMH Aspiration stamp set. Basic white is the theme at Cuttlebug Challenges this week, so I only used a bit of desert sand to compliment the white. I love the Cuttlebug dots folder. Perfect to add the little bit of extra to a card!
I took some liberties in the next card for Cards. My scallops are from a Bo Bunny diecut from the Gypsy line to coordinate with the paper from the same line. I maintained the simplicity of the card by adding very few elements. The stamp is Rubber Stampede, and the beautiful natural flower is Prima.

The next paper I used is from Melody Ross' new line, Homespun Chic. I actually cut around the sugared flowers to add them to the card. That cute tag is also from Homespun Chic. (And isn't that true? If you could only see my craft room!) Stamp and ribbon are from CTMH. LOVE this card and will surely be passing it on to one of my creative friends!! This fit into the Embellish Magazine challenge.

Now, unfortunately, I have to think about domestic responsibilites. I am so very fortunate that I have so much time to play. What a blessing!!! Tomorrow I've got some layouts to tackle, so I'll share some of that work with you then. Have a great Monday evening!

Such gorgeous cards, papers, and embellies! The first card is so very elegant! It works our Practical Scrappers challenge this week, bling.
The aqua, brown and orange card is to die for with that big juicy flower...I'm all over that one!
Love the simplicity in the next one and the last is divine!
