365 Cards, Day 29

Do you have a signature expression that you use?
Or perhaps you'd like to create a card with someone who does.
Either way, that should be the sentiment on your card.

365 Cards, Day 28

Have you ever made a card and thought, "That reminds me of someone"?
Certain patterns and colors, or perhaps a stamp with a cute or sassy sentiment,

365 Cards, Day 16

Inspiration is everywhere, but I think one of the very best places
has to be in works of art, particularly paintings. 
But I'm not talking about just any painting -- let's use an abstract painting.

Today's challenge is to use the following color scheme:

365 Cards, Day 12

It's a Keep it Simple challenge and here are the specifics:

Cover the front of the card with patterned paper, add a sentiment and one embellishment and that's it.
Doesn't show the lady raise up on foam squares
I won 1st prize for this card at our local country fair.

365 Cards, Day 11

It's titled "Repurposed" because even though a patterned paper was designed for a specific holiday or season, that doesn't mean it isn't suitable for another purpose.  So the specific challenge is to do just that -- find some paper in your stash that was intended for one holiday/season and give it a new life.

365 Cards, Day 10

Grab one of these trends from online or paper magazines and use it to
inspire your card.  Are you seeing a certain color combination, technique,
or embellishment that seems to be appearing everywhere?

365 Cards, Day 9

I pick a decade and you create a card inspired by something trendy from that time.  You can think about fashion, music, food - whatever trends stood out during that time period can inspire your card.

So here's the decade I've chosen....The 90's
