Tuesday Throwdown Pocket Card Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Time for another fun Tuesday Throwdown challenge! This week's challenge theme is POCKET CARDS! This week's sponsor is Cindy Etchtinaw, who has just started a brand new company, StampingScrapping.com! Cindy is generously offering a $20.00 gift certificate to her store.....she carries all of the latest and greatest....you'll have to check it out!

For my sample today, I have used the "Butterfly Corner" stamp and a scripture verse from "Scripture Series 1", both from Our Daily Bread designs. My room is a disaster right now, so I couldn't locate the "Butterfly Single" stamp and "Butterfly Die" which coordinate with the corner, so darn, I had to cut the butterfly out by hand! :) The butterfly and flowers were colored with a sponge dauber and the greenery was colored with a marker. The tag was made with a Spellbinders Labels Eleven die. The corner image panel was cut out and popped up with foam tape so that the tag can slide under.





I have also incorporated the following challenges in the making of this card:
Incy Wincy: At least two coloring mediums.....I used sponges with ink pads and markers;
Splitcoast's Clean and Simple Challenge is a sketch based on this awesome card by NancyK....thought the Butterfly Corner stamp from Our Daily Bread designs would work perfectly, especially since I needed some sort of pocket!! It's a win-win!!;
Our Creative Corner: Cut It Out;
Paper Cutz: stamped butterfly, ladybug, or bee;
Splitcoast Color Challenge: Yellow, blue, green.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! God Bless!
