Twofer One

 Set of cards inspired by several challenges...

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc438 ...A "what would you do" challenge!!  For this WWYD challenge the question is...What would you do with one card, two ways??  I used the same sketch, the same dies but changed the sentiment and made one of them CAS.  Since this die cuts both layers at a time it works get for a "twofer one" challenge.  The color layers are just flipped.

Less Is More // #LIM492 ...An alphabet challenge!!  C is for Celebrate!!  This challenge also wants to see how we can get MORE with LESS.  So I kept the "celebrate" card CAS...Clean And Simple // Less Is More!!
Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC151 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch worked perfectly for this "twofer one" challenge from TGIF.  I was able to use the same sketch for both cards and keep on of them clean and simple for the LIM challenge.
Addicted to CAS // #246 ...A code word challenge!!  MUSHROOM!!  That is the code word for their current challenge!!  Since the "celebrate" card was a CAS card and included a mushroom it is perfect for a second entry into this challenge.

New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz #C4G331


Today begins a new challenge at...

Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G331 ...A masculine challenge using the theme of STARS!!  Stampin Up's To the Moon stamp set has the perfect sentiment for this new challenge.  "Always reach for the Stars."  I knew I wanted this sentiment to be the building block for my card.  I used star dies and clustered up some stars in designer paper and plain card stock, and finished it off with a ribbon banner and some twine.

#C4G331 // Stars

Sunday Stamps // #SSC318 ...A sketch challenge!!  Today we have a new sketch to inspire you!!  We hope you will join the fun and play along with us.  For my card I decided to keep it monochromatic and use Mossy Meadow card stock and designer papers.  This stitched leave die from Spellbinders was the perfect die for finishing off this fun sketch of banners.
