Saturated Canary - Shaped Card

 
 
Hello everyone!
 
Today there is a new challenge at the Saturated Canary Challenge blog. Our theme is a
'Shaped Card'. I took a Spellbinders die and traced it on 3 sides of a scored 8 1/2x11 sheet and made my own shape.. since I don't have any large dies and I wanted to do something different than a circle.
I used this image called 'Grey Tie'.. I still need to read the book!

 Happy Monday!
 
Today I have a card to share with you for Lili of the Valley and for Wild Orchid Crafts.
 
We have a new challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts. Our theme is to use Metal- Silver or Gold on your card. I chose silver because it looks great with my new Country Christmas digi-papers that I have used. As you can see I have no flowers on my card! Shocker .. I know. But all of my other embellishments you can get at Wild Orchid Crafts... it truly is your one stop embellishment shop!
 
Now for the Lili of the Valley Blog Hop! I'm so excited this is my very first blog hop as a design team member. I hope you find my project just as inspiring as the rest of my design team sistahs! We have Which Crafts? sponsoring this hop as well as Lili of the Valley. Notice we are all using
 Which Crafts? very cool card templates.

Please leave me a comment on this post (comments are at the top of the post) for your chance to win a prize from either Lili of the Valley or Which Crafts? I will randomly choose a comment on

Pretty Posie Tote.

Hi there everyone.
Sorry I'm a little late with my post. This is a little tote I decorated for CHA, and never posted.
I got this little tote from the 99 cents store, then I took a piece of canvas and stamped this darling little Cutie Pie called Pretty Posie and colored it with my Copics.I hot glued it to the tote and then hot glued the stitched ribbon to make it look like I sewed it. I added the bbig old brads and thats it! Just look how adorable these came out. Such a great little gift for a crafty friend!
 
Have a wonderful Sunday!
