Cute Card Thursday & PaperPlay Challenges

Good morning!! Can you believe it's Thursday already. I have my littlest guy home from school today as it's mid-term here. I'm off to IKEA in a bit and then on to a crop in Dublin, where I will get to meet Mina!! Can't wait, I know it's gonna be a great day out.

Today on Cute Card Thursday our theme is METAL MANIA, so out came everything Tim Holtz idea-ology that I possess and I went a little bit metal manic, lol.

I used Magnolia's Edwin for this card and coloured him using distress inks. I stickled his wings, cut him out and 'sat' him on the card. The papers are BG Origins and are perfect for male cards. I just love all of the greens and browns.


To mount Edwin on the card I used 3D pop-dots

I am also entering this card into Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge as I followed their sketch.

PaperPlay Challenges

Over on Paper Play Challenges we have a fantabulous sketch for y'all to follow. The sketch was created by moi :D 

Here is my take on it... 

I used MME Bloom & Grow papers and the cutest Greeting Farm stamp called Lottie, from the Twinkle Tots collection. She is coloured using distress inks and I've added stickles to her hairbows and clothes.  I applied glossy accents to make the apples 3D. 

I've also stickled all of my flowers and added a daisy head pin from Whiff of Joy.

The tulle, pearls and flowers are from my stash.

I am entering this card into a couple of other challenges....
Anyone For Anya? with Flower Power
Fussy & Fancy Friday with Dazzle Me

Well that's it from me for today. Please do pop over to my teamies' blogs to leave them some love. I will be back tomorrow with 2 more DT cards :)

Have a great Thursday and HAPPY CRAFTING!
