Getting behind again with all these renos, so here is a look at the CYAO projects from Paper Secrets over the last two weeks.


Use 3 of the following products/techniques:
rub ons
an organic element (which can be anything found in nature, stamped leaves, flowers, trees, an actual branch) just tell us what you used and how you used it.)

Cute sketch eh? I decided I wanted to change up the shapes and use my new star punch because I wanted this one to be a congrats card.

The star punch is Creative memories, the striped paper is my ancient Momenta, the cardstock scrap and the card DCWV. I used glitter floss from We R MK, regular embroidery floss, and some thick twine that I think is Twinery. Buttons too are stash.

So what did I used - buttons, ribbon (the Congratulations, which is inked with Spun Sugar) and sewing :)


Use 3 of the following products/techniques:
punched border
a sticker
a critter (can be any critter you like, bugs, frogs, birds, cows ect. ect. )
no black ink

So as an FYI, I interpreted this "no black ink" as "use ink other than black" as I could have easily not stamped anything on this one with its gorgeous design and just said no ink. I decided to make a 50th birthday card since my aunt's birthday is in a few weeks and I am going to a joint Easter-birthday party for her :)

I used glitter, a sticker, and no black ink. The numbers and "doily" were cut using my Silhouette. All the paper are Momenta from the vibrant cardstock PA-1033 and the Let's Party collection PA-2370. The trim is Webster's pages and the glitter is all from Stickles (stardust I think and spiced marmalade).

Happy 50th Tante!!

I am also entering this 50th birthday card in the 2 Sisters challenge: birthday fun.
