There are 33 challenges to choose from - play one or play them all.

I am sharing cards for two different challenges today . My first card is for the challenge hosted by Taylor Van Bruggen and you can see the details here.

I used my new In The Park stamp set from Taylored Expressions. I built my scene, colored with copics, and added mini brads to the park benches. Stitching, lace strung with baker twine and a sentiment for the set finishes it off.

My second card is for a challenged hosted by Tiffany Johnson and you can find all the details here.

I made a card shaped like a crown and added rhinestones to the points on the crown. The image is MFT PI Birthday Princess. She is colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced. There is glitter on her crown and cake. The black border is done with the Die-namic Open Scallop Border.

Thanks for stopping by!
