Cute Card Thursday / PaperPlay Challenges

This is my final week as guest DT member on Cute Card Thursday. It's been a lot of fun and a pleasure working with the rest of the team.

This week's theme is RIBBON-TASTIC and we would like to see you use loads of ribbon on your creation.

We are being sponosred by The Stamping Boutique and one lucky winner will receive their choice of either FIVE Digi Stamps or THREE Red Rubber Stamps.

I am also entering my card into Magnolia Down Under's Challenge - they are asking for Easel Cards this week, and into Just Magnolia's Challenge as I followed the yummy sketch by JayJay.

 Papers & Ribbons: Making Memories Flower Patch
Image: Magnolia "Dragonfly Tilda"
Sentiment: Making Memories
Tools: Distress inks, x-cut butterfly punch

On PaperPlay this week the theme is FOR A MOTHER.
We would like to see you make a card/layout/gift for Mother's Day. It can be for your own mother, an aunt, grandma, sister or daughter.. any woman who is a mother.

We have a wonderful prize sponosored by Mandy, which is a totally scrumptious paper pad and embellishment pack from Papermania's Capsule Collection.

I went for a very basic card that literally took 30mins to make. I had a kids card class on Sunday and I wanted to be able to show them how they could make a really nice card very simply. 

Again, I  used the butterfly punch. The butterfly was inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and pearls added to the body.

Sentiment Stamp: DeNami Design
Papers: Making Memories Flower Patch
Tools: MS Doily Punch, Distress ink, X-cut butterfly punch
Pearls from my stash.

Phew.. what a long post today!! Thank you for visiting me and please don't forget to pop over to my teamies' blogs to leave some love.
Have a great Thursday and Happy Crafting!!
