Hello everyone!!  I’m back with another challenge that I haven’t played with in a very long time.

The Less is More Challenge is celebrating their 4th Year!  How exciting is this!!  I’m so glad I get to play along with them this week.

This week is a color challenge and the color are Pink and Grey!

I love these colors.  My high school uniform was pink and grey and I loved wearing it!!  The colors just matched perfectly. LOL!!!

Take a look at my card:


OMG!!  Isn’t that little baby elephant the cutest animal you’ve seen!!!  I love it!!

Here’s how I created this card:

1. I cut Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an A2 size(4.25 x 5.50) top folding card.

2. I cut a flower using Waffle Flower Craft Flower Circles Die Set out of Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy cardstock and some scrap white card stock for depth.

3. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Wafer Die to cut a circle out of Authentique Classique: Pretty Pattern paper.

4. I cut my baby elephant from Top Dog Dies Elephants Die Set out of fog cardstock and the little heart out of the cotton candy cardstock.

5.  Now its time to put the card together. I adhered the stitched circle to the card base first. Then I attached the flower die.  Then I adhered the elephant and heart inside the flower circle. I used foam adhesive.

6. I added the love sentiment from Crate Paper Kiss Kiss Rub Ons.

7. I adhered Stampin’ Up! rhinestone to both sides of the sentiment.

That’s it!!  I think this card is so cute!!  What do you think?  Let me know.

I’m also linking up to AAA Card Challenge.  The theme is Love.  I’m super happy that I get to play along with them this time.

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CAS(E) this Sketch #101 and only have a couple of hours to get my card in before it closes.  Why do I put myself under soooo much pressure?  I seem to think, that my best work comes from stressful situations, LOL.  That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.


The guest designer this week is Anita and she did a great job with this one.  I hope my card measures up.

I’m also entering the Waffle Flower Anything Goes Challenge for the first time.


Take a look at my card:

Smile I love you

So what do you thing?  Did I past?  Do you agree that I work best under pressure?

I wanted to make sure I stuck to her design from the sketch to the pop of color in my flower.

My original thought was to create a tag using my new Waffle Flower: Flower Circle Die, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it.  So I just added the flower cut pieces to the front of my card.

I then stamped my sentiment from Craftin Desert Divas Say It Big stamp set, in the center of the flower.  Then I decided to add another sentiment from the same set under the flower.  Both sentiments just seem to fit perfectly.

I added some Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Sparkling Sequins and 4mm Sparkling Sequins and Clear Wink of Stella on the flower and sentiments.

I rounded the corners and decided that my card was done.

So, what do you think?  Let me know below what you think.  After I completed the card, I realized that I could have made the card a shaker card.  Next time!!
