2 Challenges...




I missed yesterday's 365 Cards challenge, so I'm playing catchup today. Yesterday's challenge was "Touchy Feely Friday". We were asked to use 3 kinds of texture on our cards. I've used some crimped craft paper for my background (1); I ran some metal thru my Cuttlebug for a textured plate (2); and I've added twine and some buttons (3,4). So, I got it done with one extra texture. (oh - I also sanded the crimped paper to add a little more texture). I love cards and LO's with texture, so I really liked this challenge. I think this would make a good "male" card.
I'm also using this for Recipe #41 at Sketches by Tamara. I think it fits the 3 items of this recipe: (1) a male card, (2) metal (3) Grungy!



Next up is today's challenge at 365 Cards - "Scraplift Yourself". We were asked to create a card based on a scrapbook layout that we've done. Well, I've been working on a book for a friend so I've used an LO from that book for this challenge. The little girl is Morgan and she is too cute! I've used a couple of pp's on my card and some chipboard letters. I sanded the letters to add a little texture. I think it's a good match to the LO. What do you think? Here is the layout:






And here is the card:




Thanks for stopping by!!

Both your layout and card are beautiful--a great scraplift! Your textured card is great, too. I love the metal. I think textured cards make good masculine cards.

Oh my word that rustic card is unbelievable!!!! I love every single thing about it! I have such a hard time using those little embossed stamps. I always pull them out and put them back. I'm going to have to lift your idea!

Oh, and I've been wanting to tell you, you are way to sweet to me. Thanks so much for always leaving me comments! It really means alot! And when I have my "surfing" time at night your blog is always one of the first places I go!
