Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #15 - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday and Happy April Fool's Day!! Wow, April already!! How is that possible?? I hope you are having a wonderful week. I look forward to seeing what you have been creating when I stop by on Sunday :)


It's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land. The theme is everyone's favorite - Anything Goes using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries (there are over 40 brands!).


For my birthday cards, I started with a Poppystamps Leafy Sprig Border die along the side. The edges of the paper (which I can't remember what brand) were distressed with a Zutter DIA.


A Kaisercraft Clock die was cut in black and adhered to the paper. Memory Box Chloe Stems were tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts blooms, as were Memory Box Botanical Stem leaves.


The butterfly is a Memory Box Darla Butterfly die cut twice. The top layer was coated with sugar coating and gems. They were then adhered together and popped up with foam Tape. The banner is a LaLa Land Stitched Elements die. It was cut once in paper and again in vellum. The My Craft Spot sentiment was heat embossed on the vellum. The button on the ribbon is a Poppystamps Stitched Button die.


Another Memory Box Darla Butterfly was used inside, as was a LaLa Land Stitched Elements oval.


I'm entering this in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Happy Birthday
2) Little Scrap Pieces - Show it off Saturday
3) DL.Art - pril Linky

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Scrapy Land to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your project using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Absolutely gorgeous! You should do this on a cover a journal. What a beautiful gift that would make!

Pamellia Johnson said...

Wow Lisa, absolutely stunning!! Love all the wonderful fresh green hues and your flower arrangement is just gorgeous! Love your layered butterfly and the cute little button on your bow! Breathtaking! :)

Donna Ellis said...

oh, Lisa, what can I say? I love LOVE everything about this beautiful card. I especially like that it is monochromatic in color theme, and that even the flowers and butterfly are done in greens. (actually, if the writing was missing from your butterfly, it would look like one of our butterflies called Cloudless Sulphur. Here is a photo of one: http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/bfly/bfly2/cloudless_sulphur.htm
My heart always melts at your "nature" creations. xoxox

Donna K said...

I've been totally off track this week, Lisa! A quick trip to the mountains and playing catch up at home, getting the yard ready for summer and preparing for our little Easter gathering hasn't left me enough hours in the day. I've been missing your posts and am happy I had a few minutes to catch up today. Your birthday card is totally gorgeous! I love that double stitch you added and the green hues are so SPRINGY! I was also curious if you did your craft show yet and how it went. I may have missed a post about that. Anyway...as I write a journal on your blog I'll just say. Happy Easter to you! Thanks for your constant encouragement and visits to my blog. I know it's so time consuming yet, you visit and inspire us all in wonderful ways. Thank You. Big hugs!

MaryH said...
