For the "Flower" Challenge I used Mocha from the Coffee House Bundle and Steel Blue from the Blues Bundle.  I made a masculine flower card.
I began by watercoloring some  Art Impressions stamps.  Then I cut out the image with My Creative Time dies.  The papers are Graphic 45.  I tied Steel Blue ribbon through a Vintage Button.  I then attached the button to a strip of  Mocha crinkle ribbon.

 Sometimes it is hard to make a special card for a special friend.  I had it in my head but I couldn't create it how I imagined it.  I knew I wanted a cross and a wreath.  After a few days of playing around with it, I am finally delighted with the outcome.  I began by cutting a Spellbinders cross.  Then I I cut an oval of watercolor paper and divided it into quadrants.  Then I stamped 4 Birdhouses and clusters of flowers in between.  Then I filled in with leaves and branches.  I stamped the images using Marvy markers then I went over them with a wet brush. I used the following Art Impression Stamps-Mini Flower setBird Bath Set,  Flower set 1Foilage set 1.  I used My Creative Time Stitched oval dies.  I added a beautiful bow DL.ART Creamy Dreamy Bundle

I made these fun easter boxes to give to a my kids.  I'll fill them with gift cards and candy.  I cut the box out of Canson Watercolor paper using Cricut Access.  I got the paper damp then i swirled some distressed inks on a pallette.  Then I colored 3 sides of the boxes.  I stamped the bunny image on one panel using Art Impressions-Easter Blessings.  I colored the image with marvy markers and a wet brush.  I added some sequins and a Lavender bow-DL.ART Spring Bundle

Good Morning it is March 1st- that means it is time for a new challenge over at DL.ART.  These challenges are Anything Goes.  Have you been to the DL.ART STORE.  Diana has lots of fun crinkle ribbon bundles, buttons and pins.  My readers get a 10% discount just use the code KA345.  For this challenge I used Peacock from the  Build Your Own Bundle and Crown from the Jewel and Crown Bundle.  I also used Brown and White Twine and a Vintage Button.
For this challenge  I chose another Anna Griffin Pop-Up Card by Cricut.  The outsides of these cards are rather simple.  I used some Graphic 45 paper and cut a sentiment in Cricut Access.  I changed the inside of the card to match the Graphic 45 paper.  The cake looked rather plain so I decided to add some perfect pearls.  I made a bow using Peacock and Crown crinkle ribbon.  Then I attached a red rose Vintage Button with some twine
