January 23rd.

Hi everyone,
Welcome back. It's day 23 and I'm on challenge card number 26. I've now made 28 cards for the year. I have 2 different cards for 2 different challenges to show you this time.
First is The friday mashup. This week Rita you like us to mash up Paper Piercing with a great combo of Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, and Early Espresso.

My favorite flowers are daisies. Last year I found pink daisies at the green house, they were so pretty and I'm hoping they come back this year.So anyways  I just had to do a pink daisy for this card.

The paper piercing I did on the opposite corners. The Riding hood red strip was just laying there and I thought it would look nice going across my card, but it wasn't long enough. So on the other side of my image I punched out a modern label and cut it into. The brads just added a nice touch. The background is stamped with a heart and swirl background stamp that's been retired for a while. My sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set and the daisy is from Inkadinkado. The matting around the daisy is emboss using Cuddlebugs love words folder. 

My next card is a baby card using the sketch from Mojo Monday. Let me tell ya, I used up some tiny little scraps on this one. Here's the sketch.

I kept losing my little panels for this one. I must have remade each one at least 3 times. Then I got wise and cleaned up my desk.

So about the glare on this. I just love this stamp set. It's called Baby Bundle. My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I kept the colors soft, they are So Saffron, Pink Piroutte, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Pale Plum. I colored all my images with markers and colored over the words I wanted from the sentiment stamp that comes with the set. I cut out the words I wanted and matched them up to the images. I embossed the background with the Cuddlebug Swiss Dot folder.
I hope you like my cards. Be sure to stop back again tomorrow.
