Neon oh happy day

Hi everyone!
My two cards for today are inspired by the Inkspirational color challenge: Neon!  

I love neon colors.  For my card I stamped using Gorgeous Grunge in Neon pink and orange randomly across the top half of the card base.  I then used neon paper to cut out the flower and scallop circle.  This die is from Penny Black and I was lucky enough to win it from my sweet bloggy friend, Lisa!  Thank you, Lisa!

My second card uses the same die but a black card base and the fun Stitched banner die from Pretty Pink Posh.

There's a one year anniversary "anything goes" linky party going on at The Challenge this week, so to celebrate the milestone I'm playing along there as well!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

MUSE Challenge Guest designer

Hi everyone!
**This is my second post for today.  Scroll down for my Merry Monday Challenge card.***
I have exciting news to share with you all today.  I'm your Guest MUSE this week!!!
I was so excited to get the invite from Ardyth!!!!

Here is my card...

I used new goodies from Papertrey Ink.  The colors on the scallop circle were created using the Direct to Paper technique with Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet and Hawaiian Shores inks by PTI.  I used the Scene it: Everyday die to make the tree silhouette.  The birds are from Dockside by Wplus9 and the sentiment is from A Tree for All Seasons by Winnie & Walter.

I can't wait to see how you are inspired by my card.  It could be from the design, the colors or even the sentiment.  It's is up to you.  You have one week to enter this Muse challenge and I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Merry Monday #152

Hi everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week I am your challenge hostess and I challenge you to use the colors, Lime, Turquoise and White on your Christmas card.

I am featuring lots of Lil' Inker Designs products today.  The Snowflake Cover up die and the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag die set.  I used Tempting Turquoise paper for the front of my card.  I sponged some Lime ink onto my flag die after stamping and embossing my sentiment in white.  I attached the snowflake cover up piece and added the sentiment which has a cute little snowflake brad attached.  Added the sequins and that finishes off my card.

 Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.
I hope you will join us!

I am playing over at Christmas Card Challenges: Anything goes.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Happy Birthday

Happy Friday!
Today's card is inspired by the awesome Tenia Nelson who is the MUSE this week at Muse challenge.  Here is her awesome card!!!!

I was inspired by the gold embossing on kraft cardstock, the black splatters and the gold sequins.  I tried to make washi tape work on my card too but no such luck.  I LOVE how Tenia uses Washi tape.  I used the sketch at Case this Sketch for my card.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
