Banners and Pearls

I made this card for the current challenge over at Twisted Tuesday. The challenge is to use Banners on your project. The TWIST: use pearls on your creation. 

I really love the look of the chalkboard cards that are very popular right now. So, that is the look I am going for with this card. 

Birthday cards remind me of fun activities so I used the new set from Stampin' Up! from their Sale-a-bration catalog. I think Ferris Wheels are fun! I remember sitting at the top and rocking the seat, teasing my sister, and making her protest. I was eight and she was nine. 

Birthdays also remind me of bright colors so that is what I used. 

Here I took a couple of pictures showing how I made my banners. I just used a square punch to make the tails. Easy!

We would love to have you join in our challenge over at  TWISTED TUESDAY CHALLENGES. They go for two weeks so you have a little more time to submit your project. Make a card, scrapbook page or 3D item. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Spring Canvas

Hello, and happy Monday to all. I have finished my first of four seasons' canvases that I am working on. I spent a lot of time working on it and it is finally finished to my satisfaction. 

I used many paper flowers here, some ribbons and butterflies. 

I also painted and textured some chipboard for my title. I am just in love with pink lately, and all soft colors. I guess I am anxious for spring! 
Thanks for taking a look, and I would appreciate any comments! I am also entering this creation in the following challenges: 
Sentimental Sundays #145: 3Embellishments that start with the letter B with a sentiment-I have 2 butterflies, and 1 bow.
The Shabby Tea Room #157-Oh, So Pretty In Pink

A Challenge

I have another card challenge for you from Twisted Tuesday challenges. It is make something for spring and the TWIST is to use green. 
I thought that I would do something along the lines of St. Patrick's Day. I never get the chance to use these types of stamps that I have in my stash. So, I went and did it, I used my Good Luck stamp and made a four leaf clover. I could probably use this card for a graduation card. Do you have any other suggestions for how or for what occasion I could also use it for? 

Come and join us at Twisted Tuesday for this challenge. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

I would also like to enter this in the following challenges:
