Anything but a Card

The current challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges is to make anything except a card.  I always need decorative gift tags for Christmas presents, so I made a few of them.  Tags are a great way to use up scraps and leftovers.  They are all miniature works of art.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digis.  Be sure to check her out - she has lots of pretty images.

Q is for Quilting

Our current challenge at Alphabet Challenges, is Q is for Quilting.  I used an interpretation of the wedding ring quilt design.  I added fabric flowers that I diecut with the Vagabond.  I continued with the sewing theme by embellishing the flowers with buttons.  I even had a wooden ruler perfect for measuring your fabric.  Please join us at Alphabet Challenges and see what the oher design team members have created.

Team Spirit

The current challenge at Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is to create something with the team spirit theme.  I chose a medallion with ribbons for my centerpiece.  I added lots of sparkly crystals red seam binding ribbon.  The jeweled ribbon in black made just the right ending.  Join us at Ruby's Rainbow and show us your team spirit!

I am also submitting this card in the Anything Goes with Ribbon challenge at Crafty Ribbons.

Simple is Elegant

It has been quite awhile since I have created a card for the challenges in the magazine, 75 Creative Card Challenges.  The sixth challenge is to use nothing but stickers.  No patterned paper layers or additional embellishments were allowed.  This was tough!  I pretty much always start with patterned paper layers on my cardstock.  The result was simple, yet elegant.  On to the next challenge!
