Tracey's card
I was inspired by the simple, CAS style of her card and of course I love flowers so flowers it is....

MIM #228 Pearlized Blending with Lizzie

My card for MIM using Lizzie's Technique.  Click to watch her video.
Initially, I didn't have the antenna on them so tried to stamp them on and didn't like that so die cut some in black and didn't like the starkness of them so tried it in similar colors of the butterfly which I think I like better.  I don't know.  What do you think?

PTI's - Create Along With Us - October 2015

A tag for the Create Along With Us 
Using Betsy's tags below as an inspiration
I love her tags.  I tried several things to come up with something.  Didn't have any pattern paper that would work, then tried to make my own striped background and screwed it up when it was almost done and didn't like it with the top tag anyway.  Oh well, it is what it is....

Merry Monday #175 Add a Moose

Join us this week for Nina's challenge to add a Moose to your card.

Used Copic to color and added a piece of PTI's Christmas Prints and then popped him up with some foam.
