Card Recognition

Happy Birthday



Since I love the blogging community I know you guys will understand when I say that I sat down to find inspiration for a card that I have make today (and have a limited window of time to do so before work, soccer practice and household needs) that I got sucked into blogland and found inspiration for a card that had nothing to do with the one I was suppose to make?  Please tell me this happens to you all the time too?  So with a click, click and a click I was inspired by the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the new Young Crafters Unite challenges.  (Edited to say I just re-read the challenge rules for Young Crafters and realized I have exceeded their multi-challenge rules, oops, but can't figure out how to un-list a card from a challenge, so please forgive me for skipping over the rules).  And since I reached for a few PTI goodies it works for the A Passion for Papertrey "Anything Goes" challenge.  Wow, all that before I've even had breakfast?  



Materials: PTI All Booked Up, PTI Mat Stack 4, Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It sentiment, Hero Arts Classic Fabric cling, PTI Mat Stack 4 die, Twinery twine, Reflections rhinestones, cream and black card stock, Versafine black ink, water color pencils

Love your card Erin! I really struggled to find an idea for the Tuesday Trigger challenge and in the end just didn't play this week. Perfect paper though! Busy gal, have a happy day!

I like your colored image with all the black & white. Thanks for playing at YCU! (dispite rules) :) You can always play along again this challenge. :)

Wowzers! That's pretty impressive before breakfast!
You've used one of my fave Hero Arts stamps for this beauty - never thought of simply stamping in black on white but it looks great!
Thanks for joining us on A Passion for Papertrey!
Hugs,

Mat Stack 4 is a perfect fit for this sketch challenge!! And I LOVE that GORGEOUS Classic Fabric cling image!! And you are not alone, my friend. I get sucked into blogland all of the time and before I know it a couple of hours have gone by and I've accomplished nothing! HA!

Very pretty card! I especially love how you've selectively colored in the circle image. I've always enjoyed that stamp set from PTI, and you've showed it off so well here. Lovely! Thank you much for playing along with us a Young Crafters Unite for our very first challenge!

Hey Erin! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World. I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

I love the black and white very cool. Just as an FYI for next time, as I have also wanted to delete cards from an entry... Find your card and right next to your name is a little red X if you click that it will delete it. I hope that helps.
