The results of "burning the midnight oil..."


There are 4 cards here to view for various challenges.
Hubby away on business, thus I can't sleep. So, instead of tossing and turning, I spent a few quiet hours crafting some cards for various challenges. I can't tell you the last time that I wanted to do that.
This card was a sketch challenge for Mercy Kerin's blog, #65 and Flutter by Wednesdays #100- butterflies. The card is all purple- monochromatic. The cardstock is actually from Debbie Mumm and it is full of sparkle, not even including the sparkly from the glitter on the butterfly! The pearls are Reminisce clearance, MS punch, 3d foam dots, photo hanger to hold the tag, CTMH sentiment.
This card follows the sketch over at Inspirational Cards #58 and the extra challenge is POLKA DOTS. I love this umbrella stamp from CTMH and I tried to do something different with the banner and curved it for added "umph". It also is for the Pink Elephant- #58 Spring and Creative Card Crew #46, going dotty and Crafty Creations- #59 spots and dots.
The card is a sketch challenge over at a new site to me: Cards and Things, #24. It makes a cute baby shower or 1st birthday card for a child. The Pink Elephant- anything spring.
This final card is for the bonus sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You and another for Pink Elephant- anything spring. I love this paper pack from Debbie Mumm!
