I have two cards to post today. One was the St Patrick's Day card I made for the Cardologists. This card is made with a Celtic gyre as the focal point. I covered it in Crystal Effects to make it look a little like a charm. I used a Spellbinders lattice die and two sizes of Sizzix framelits to cut the backgrounds. The shamrock was made with a heart punch.
Because you can see, with a little imagination, a green ombre look, I am submitting this card to the City Crafter Challenge Blog where Darnell is the special guest designer. You still have a few hours to check out the Week 254 challenge. Even though I have had the boxed set of Celtic stamps forever, this is a never been used stamp as are the Sizzix dies that I received as a gift. So I am also linking the card to Darnell's NBUS Challenge 4.
This next card was a quick, and I mean really quick card, made because I didn't want to miss the deadline at Time Out Challenges. My cardologist friend, Susanne, is guest designer there for challenge 27 where the theme is "Clean and Simple with an optional twist of Black and White plus a Splash of One Colour."
My style might have too many layers to be CAS, but I hope it has enough white to qualify. The stamp is from a retired Stampin' Up set called Measure of a Life. Just a tiny bit of blue colored pencil on the body rubbed out over the wings.
Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you have a wonderful day.
