Fishy Father's Day


3 challenges inspired today's 1st card...

Festive Friday // #FF0135 ...An inspo challenge!!  We have been given an inspo list in celebration of Father's Day.  Our job is to create a card using 3 of the 10 items on the inspo list.  For my Father's Day card I used eyelets, fish, and plaid. Oh and they teamed up with Double Trouble!!  For the Double Trouble challenge we are to make it masculine, use plaid, and also use the Festive Friday challenge.

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS587 ...A sketch challenge!!  Every card has a sketch...I'm just thankful for the great inspiration FMS gives so that we have a great starting point for our cards.

Colorful Options // May 23 ...A color challenge!!  BLUE!!  Blue ink, blue plaid designer papers...I got the blue theme covered!!

3 challenges inspired my 2nd card...

Inspired By // #IB239 ...An inspiration challenge with an optional sketch.  I decided to use both for my card.  I don't use purples very often but love the combination of purple and black together...very striking!!

{PIN}spirational Challenges // #301 ...A Pintrest challenge!!  This month the Pintrest photo is all about rainbows and birthdays.  I didn't use rainbow colors but I did use my new rainbow stamp.

Global Design Project // #GDP395 ...A theme challenge!!  BIRTHDAY!!  I have several birthday cards need in the next few weeks for this challenge comes at a great time.
