March Madness from Angela

So here's my card for this month...
Talk about a challenge!! This card definitely
went through some serious re-working before
I was happy with the finished product.

You can't really tell in the picture, but
the hearts that are stamped on the kraft
paper have a subtle, glittery finish due to
two-steppin' with some Versamark 'Dazzle'
before I inked them up with the Pale Plum.
Obviously, the colours are purples and greens
and it is a birthday card...I missed a couple
birthdays while I was out West and so the
inside reads "Sorry I'm late. Happy Birthday!"
For all the card details, you can visit The Scrapyard.

This was a great challenge - totally had to don
my thinking cap for this one :) Thanks Marnie!!
I'm having a blast playing along with you gals - so
stay tuned for April's challenge, coming on Thursday!

Marnie's March Madness

I had a good time making this month's card. I pondered for a while, sat down and sketched out my idea, and then set to work. This is the result:

This is a 3" x 6" card. I embossed the flowers in the lower right-hand side of the card in green, two-step stamped the butterfly with two other shades of green, cut it out and popped it up on the card with dimensionals. Then I highlighted the flight pattern of the butterfly with some green 'bling' on the purple cardstock base. Simple little birthday card.

March Challenge

March is a great month. Sadly, it usually signals the end of Winter, but on the upside, it's my birthday month! Yippee for me! Please, no gifts :)

So, for March's challenge...


Your challenge is to make a birthday card that uses two-step stamping in some way, and uses the colours purple and green on it somewhere.

That's all. The rest is up to you.

Happy Stamping!
