Trying To Get Back In The Swing Of Things...Two Challenges

Well, I am trying to get back to crafting after it feels like forever....I made a card for two different challenges. The first one is The Paper Variety (Create a project using Black and White with a Kiss of Color (any color)). The second challenge is Die Cuttin' Diva's (sketch).

Here is the card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Black, Red and Two Different Patterned Papers
Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed Cupcake 2, page 77 (Shift Base, Shift Layer 1 Shift Layer 2 and Shift Layer 3)
Cricut Design Studio
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps, Make a Wish "Happy Birthday!"
Martha Stewart Edger Doily Lace
1 1/4" Circle Punch
Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter Crystal
Inkssentials Glossy Accents
Mounting Tape

I really like the way this turned out. However, with that said, I decided to make another card using the same sketch, but with different papers. Here is that card:

(Instead of Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter, I used regular clear glitter). Now I also like the way this one turned out. I always think it is so cool how basically the same idea can look so different. What do you think? Which one do you like?

Well, I really want to get back to making another card, while I have a chance (lol)...Thank you for stopping by...(Leave a comment)

imagine what you could do...


  1. Hi Dana! I have to tell you I liked the black and white card with the red cherry. I thought, hey that was a good way to enter both the challenges. But when I scrolled down and saw your second cupcake card, well, the color just pops, so I love that one! It is amazing how the same design can look so different, isn't it. Great job with both. Thanks for joining Die Cuttin' Divas this week!--Pat N.

  2. That's the reason I love to check out what people do with sketch challenges, basic sketch with multiple twists! I love both and couldn't pick just one! :)

  3. Wow! How great is that! Your made not one, but two. I have to say the black and white one is my favorite too, but I sure do like the bright green border. Thanks for joining Die Cuttin' Diva this week to help celebrate our birthday.
