Dawn McVey Color Challenge #20

This is Dawn's great color challenge. I love it and I loved the flowers she made on a card a few days later (Nov. 24). Dawn used an old book to make her flowers. I stamped PTI Polka Dot II on the front and back of copy paper, then punched out 8 marvy mega (giga for the largest) scallop punches (per flower), then stacked them up, used a paper pierce and brad to secure then in the middle and last start crumpling from the middle out. Dawn has full details on her blog www.dawnmcvey.typepad.com
Here is an up close view. Check out the awesome new MS edge punch! It is sold in a set, the edge and the corner all in one box. Love Martha Stewart too!

Supplies PTI Polka Dot Basics II & Handwritten Notes, PTI Raspberry Fizz Ink, SU Ink and CS- Cool Caribbean, lavender lace, mellow moss, Choc Chip, MS edge punch, PTI Raspberry Fizz ribbon, white Stazon ink pad., Marvy Mega and Giga Scallop Circle punches, brads.

Halmark Inspiration



My sweet mother sent my hubby & I an anniversary card in October. (Note to my sister, it is the same card mom sent you for your anniversary :-) The card had glittery butterflies and cute little sayings falling down the card. I loved it! And it inspired these card. I cut the butterflies out with my cuttlebug die and stitched the butterflies on with brown thread (antennas). I am really happy with how they turned out.
Supplies: PTI Friends till the End and Polka Dot Bkg, CS- Su Certainly Celery, Choc Chip, Pretty in Pink, EK edge punch, Ink- Certainly Celery & choc chip, Cuttlebug die, material and thread, gems unknown.
