Card Recognition

love you and journal




Today's card was inspired by two different challenges, Virigina's Lily Pad Cards and Jen's Runway Inspired Challenge.  The CAS girl in me thinks perhaps I shouldn't of combined the two-- since the fun rainbow letters might've stood out more on all white... but oh well, live and learn.  I used my Making Memories Eyelet tool took to create the the "strings" and I think that's good use of a smaller hole punch for the Moxie Fab World punches challenge.

And the next project doesn't currently have a challenge agenda, it's actually the prize for a contest.  My friend Kim Culbertson is launching a book next week and she's having a contest on figment.com.  I posted the first one here, the second one here and today I'm showing you the third homemade journal.
