365 Cards - Day 291

It's Friday, Friday!  I am ready!  Here's a fun challenge to jump start your creativity for the upcoming days from 365 Cards.


The challenge today is "Diamonds and Pearls".  You must include the diamond shape somewhere (can even be patterned paper) and at least THREE pearls.  I went with a Christmas theme since it's still that time!!  This is one of my favorite little stamps, so much fun and sweet to boot!  Season of Joy from Paper Pretties.  





I colored the image with colored pencils and Gamsol.  The diamonds are in this SU patterned paper.  The background paper is from The Paper Studio.  Pearls along all the scalloped edges of the center oval.  Sentiment on the inside.  


Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  Don't forget to visit the 365 Cards blog to link up your projects!

365 Cards - Day 284

It's Friday, Friday.  WOOT!  I am definitely ready!  Here's a fun challenge to jump start your creativity for the upcoming days from 365 Cards.


The challenge today is to create a mosaic on your card using small pieces of paper.  Since "abstract" and I are *not* friends, I chose to make a nice tiled pattern for my mosaic background.  All the better to show off this fantastic image from Paper Pretties - love this baby boy set.  Currently out of stock but check back to the website soon to get yours!
