Catch the Bug Mini Challenges #4 & #5

Wow this week has flown by! So for the last two mini challenges, #4 was to do a birthday themed card. I used my all time favorite color PURPLE & cupcake Dottie who I think is absolutely FABULOUS!!
I used glitter on the frosting of the cupcake & then used glossy accents which I covered in glitter on her ear rings & bow center to add a little extra pizazz

Up Close
You can see it a little better here. Like I said before, I am still trying to figure out this photographing thing. :) I colored her w/ my colored pencils, DP is from Imaginesce, card stock is African Violet by Paper Adventures, the ribbon is a scrap I dug out of my ribbon stash, & I hand wrote the sentiment (not super fond of it) & popped the punched pieces up with a pop dot

And for challenge #5, It was an anything goes challenge, so I threw caution to the wind & tried something new! I have been admiring easel cards on other blogs & finally decided to make one of my own. It's for my mom (Hi mom!) to celebrate her being cancer free for almost 2 yrs now. Plus, pink has ALWAYS been her signature color! tee hee! I am also entering this card for the challenge at Do You Stack Up? where the theme for this week's challenge is Think Pink. I am really starting to dig this!
Too Pink!
Here is my supply list: kraft & white cardstock, I made the back ground paper & "Think Pink" sentiment using microsoft publisher, DP is Making Memories Cheeky Collection- Abby set, ribbon scrap from my stash pile, white brad is Making Memories, and the glitter pen used on her hand bag & flower I believe came from a little set I picked up in the dollar bin at JoAnn Fabrics. When I saw Pink Ribbon Gals at Bugaboo, I instantly just HAD to get one!

  1. Candiwoo-I LOVE both of your cards. Loving the bling and glitter on the Dottie card (she is FABULOUS, isn't she?) and I can't believe you handwrote that sentiment...it looks awesome. That never seems to work when I try that! :)
    Love your easel card. Congrats on trying something new...you totally rocked it. AND more importantly, congrats to your mom for being cancer free for TWO YEARS. That is great news and definitely worth celebrating. Thanks for playing along in the Bugaboo Bday celebration challenges this week!
