I used cardstock colors from this week's Wednesday Color Throwdown: rose, blue and light pink. The rose color in my picture looks much darker than it does in real life. I also made this card with two other challenges in mind: the Digital Tuesday Challenge which was to make a simple card and the Creative Belli Blog which was to use a metal tag on your card (but if you don't have a metal tag, you could use something metal so I chose this metal flower button)

I made this card using two of my Cuttlebug embossing folders AND some awesome card candy that I got from my friend Rainy B at Cardmaker. Thanks Rainy!! I love it and it worked so perfectly with the colors for this challenge!

The brown ribbon is from my friend Gaye at Card Swap. Thanks Gaye!
Flutterby Challenge: use ribbon and buttons and include a butterfly
Creative Belli Blog: use something with texture
ABC Challenge: V is for vellum
Cute Card Thursday: Thank you card
I found this image thanks to my friend Jeanette. She referred her readers to a site called Art Freebies and I found it there. I sanded the edges and matted it with brown cardstock that had also been sanded to give them both a vintage look. I cut the window card using my Cricut and stamped thank you in the window. I used vellum on the inside of the card to cover the window. The ribbon accross the top is velvety so that was the texture I used. I used a butterfly stamp that I received from my friend Margaret to stamp little butterflies along the corners and placed a button in the bottom right corner.

Wednesday Color Throwdown: red, kiwi and turquois
Just Christmas and Birthday cards: Bday or Christmas card using sketch
Pink Elephant Challenge: make a card using stars and strips of paper or ribbon
I also wanted to do the Flutterby challenge this week which was to use button and ribbon but I missed the part about needing to have a butterfly on the card as well. Don't think that would work with the whole Christmas theme!
The kiwi color in the photo looks more brown that it does in real life. I used my Cricut to cut the snowman circles and the stars.
and was randomly chosen to win a necklace that is shaped like a blue and white polka dot dress! I can't figure out how to link the pic so if you want to see it, the post is here.
Thanks Crafty Creations!
Here's the link to this week's freebie: santa
And in case you missed it, here's last week's freebie: snowman
Hope you like them as much as I do!

OOOPS! I realized when I went to post my tag on the TIO challenge that I was supposed to use a real stamp, not a digital one. So, I took out one of my old SU stamps and replaced the digi snowman image with this one!

I embossed the guava cardstock with the Happy Birthday embossing folder using my Cuttlebug. The floral background paper is a freebie from Stamp TV and the stamp is a digital stamp from Dustin Pike.

I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder for the Cuttlebug part of the challenge along with the sketch from SSW and the colors red, white and blue. I also used the little guy from my "Patriotic Pair" stamp set.
