Three Day Weekend!

Hi All,

This is for the Etsy Inspired Challenge and Marks Finest Papers Challenge this week.

The Etsy challenge spotlights the fun Kimmieprout Etsy store.  I chose this set of hand-made buttons as my inspiration, such cute stuff, eh?  The Marks Finest Papers Challenge is to use a die cut on your card.  I used Nestibilities Blossom and Circle dies.

The chipboard birdy and DP is Basic Grey Max and Whiskers collection. The branch is SU's bird punch.  CS used is Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake. 


This 2nd card is also posted over on SCS.  It's for today's Featured Stamper, Charlene!!  I cased her "Let's Use the Rich Color of Teal" card, changing out the materials for stuff I have on hand.  Supplies used are SU Pretty Peone, SU Sweet and Sassy Rub Ons, Momenta Textured paper, White, Black and Tempting Turquoise CS.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!!  God Bless America!!
