613 Avenue Create #165-Anything Goes-Option Lace & Pearls

So how are things with you today?  I hope you have the time to pay us a visit at 613 Avenue Create and join in our latest Anything Goes Challenge with the Option to use Lace and Pearls. Our sponsor is Star Stamps - the DT has some fab projects for your inspiration.  This week my card falls into the Anything Goes category. I used an image I've had for years and, I'm sorry to say, I don't know the name of it. I wanted to make a feminine card so I decided to dig through my stash of uncolored images. This one caught my eye - I colored it up with my Spectrum Noirs, fussy cut it and placed in on a doily.  Since I'm mailing it, I didn't use any pearls. I used a pre-cut colored card base and added a border from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart punch and some scraps to make the butterflies. I think I'll send this to my older sister.  I'll add a sentiment when I mail it.

I may come back to enter some challenges, but I've got to get busy with other things now. Enjoy your day!!

613 Avenue Create #163-Anything Goes-Option Shaker Project

Hello, Friends!  This week's challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option to create a shaker project.  I used our sponsor A Day for Daisies Elephant in Love image to create mine. I stenciled the dots on the background paper.  After coloring the cute elephant with my Spectrum Noir markers, I cut it out using a circle Nestie. The frame around the shaker was cut using two Nesties. I added some die cuts and sequins inside the shaker, but first I glued down some sequins around the elephant. In the picture, two heart caught on a glued sequin - I think they look cute! I added a sentiment which I cut into a banner.

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. Visit our site and have fun!

613 Avenue Create #162-Anything Goes-Option Single Layer Card

Hello, Friends!  We have a great option in our Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create this week - Create a Single Layer Card.  That can be extremely difficult since most of us are used to adding at least one layer to the card base. I can't wait to see what you all come up with. I think this will push a lot of us creatively, don't you?  Check out the blog and have a great day!
