New Challenge Begins Today

A new challenge begins today over at Shopping Our Stash!!  We hope you will join the fun and play along with our "Spread Your Wings" challenge...#SOS466.  Today's first card was made for this challenge and I hope it inspires you to play along.  From my stash I used a honeycomb die (Stampin Up's Honey Bee bundle) that I had cut but hadn't used as a stencil.

Spread You Wings #SOS466

Card #2 was inspired by 4 challenges...

Less Is More // #LIM460 ...A bit of bling challenge!!  Use some of you bling but keep it simple!!

Just Us Girls // #JUG623 ...A trend challenge!! For this challenge it is embossing folders that are trending!! I ran my embossing sandwich through my Big Shot and then water colored over it.

Make the Cards Challenge // #50 ...A technique challenge!! The challenge for this current challenge is to use embossing folders.  They truly are trending!!

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS384 ...A color challenge!! The trio of colors for this challenge...Mint Macaroon, So Saffron, and Fresh Freesia. A perfect floral combination for springtime.
