Challege Cards with Kat

Every so often Kat & I will do mini challenges in my craft room. We will agree on the papers we want to use and the stamp set and both create some great cards. We decided to do that last weekend and these are the cards we came up with...for this challege we used Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac Prints Designer Series Paper, Brushed Silver and Shimmer White papers and the Magical & Mystical stamp set.
This is Kat's card. She cut out an extra dragonfly and added it to the background using dementionals to give it a little extra interest. Kat colored her image in with colored pencils and used twinkling h2o's to color in the fairy dust. She used dark purple wide organza ribbon and light blue narrow organza ribbon layered together and knoted to add a little something to the bottom of her card. I think her card came out great!!!!

This is what I came up with. I chose to do a gatefold card. I heat embossed my image and colored the entire thing with twinkling h2o's. Instead of using ribbon I went with sugar coated brads to help add to the whole glitter affect I had going. I also used the ticket corner punch to add interest to the corners of the main image.
Kat & I both really enjoy doing these little challenges and are looking forward to doing more!
