Wed. Jan. 4, 2012 Two cards and a few challenges

It was really nice to spend some time in my studio today. Christmas decorations will have to wait until the weekend-LOL.
  I've got two cards to share with you today. The first one is for the CR84FN45- to use medium blue, orange and yellow. I used a Memory Box die called LaRue Flourish (this cuts like butter) and a Spellbinders tag die.  The sentiment and the bird are from Mark's Finest Papers "Pussy Willows" stamp set.

My next card is for 3 challenges. 

I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 222.

Tami at StampTV's STVMONTAMI5- to use one of Gina's new patterned papers as an inspiration.  I used one of Gina's Freebie patterns and inked it up with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Gina K (Melanie's Inspiration Mosaic set)
Since the JUGS challenge 117 this week was to use felt, this card qualifies for both challenges. I have made a lot of roses before with paper and cs, but using felt for one, was a first for me!  I like it! I made felt leaves too!

Wow- this was a longer than normal post- Hope you enjoyed it though, because I sure appreciate you stopping by!   ...Karen

Okay, those die cuts are AMAZING! I just got a Big Shot for Christmas, and I am gonna have to go spend some money on those--you've used them beautifully! :)

Oh my! Both cards are beautiful. The Memory Box dies have got my imagination right now so my eye goes to the first card. I love the way you incorporated the colors and the layers. Thanks for sharing the inspiration!
