When I decided to use the PI Clowning Around, I know the square had to be a little wonky. I colored her with Copics and stamped a greeting from the set on the frame. We all need to "be silly" sometimes and just enjoy life!

I knew when I saw these colors that the flamingos had to come out. It has been a long time since I have played with them. Such beautiful pink colors have been released and I love the way they turned out. Die cuts, paper and ink are all from MFT stamps.

I chose the middle vertical row for my card. I am loving the MFT diagonal design background. I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it with Blue Silver embossing powder from Sparkle n Sprinkle. I chose die cut champagne flutes cut from vellum and colored with copic markers on the back and the matching liquid dies, cut from MFT gold sparkle paper. The sentiment, cut from MFT black licorice paper, was layered for depth. This was mounted on a top folding black card base.

I love these colors and they went so well with MFT butterflies. I used a light gray background but it looked too plain so I stamped with a background in Versamark then embossed with silver detail embossing powder from Sparkle n Sprinkle. The same embossing powder was used for the sentiment.

This is a relatively new challenge for me. I am enjoying it a lot. Sometimes the colors are not ones that I would choose and so this lets me try different combinations. I like the way the light changes the colors, too. I have a lot of birthdays in the summer, so I chose this theme. I used stamps and papers from last year's birthday kit from MFT.

Well, I thought that I packed enough supplies to make most any card for any challenge, but nowhere in my thinking did Christmas occur. We are on vacation visiting our kids and I must say that some entries have been a challenge. MFT's card kit for last month was "All About You" and had these wonderful die cut "you"s in various type faces. When I looked for some design help in my stash, this "you" jumped out and said I can be your "Joy"!  And it was. Die cut hexies completed my card.

For my element I chose an MFT flower from the Tropical Blooms set, stamped with gold Delecata ink and colored with watercolor on watercolor paper. I added a gold strip of paper, stamped my sentiment on vellum and embossed with white detail embossing powder from Sparkle n Sprinkle and finished with some enamel dots.
