Who says the middle of the week can't be fun?

I certainly don't because there are TWO, yes count them, TWO challenges today that you definitely need to check out today.

The first is the Creative Belli Blog challenges with the theme of "Water-based markers only." Yep, no Copics! For this card, I used some Marvy markers. It's been fun being a guest designer and I appreciate them having me for the month of August!

The second challenge is Crafty Creations with the theme of "Tags." I always say this, but the DT has really stepped it up for this challenge. What great tags they've come up with! The prize this week kindly donated by Trudette.


Stamp: PB Allegro set; Paper: DCWV; Tools: Fiskars corner rounder and edge punchers

This card is a few challenges:
  1. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Challenge #12 Sketch
  2. AllSorts - Week #14 In an English Country Garden
  3. Penny Black Challenges - Week #62 Colour Challenge - The "greenish" paper is actually blue, but I looks green because of the distressing. Sorry! I used PB Allegro clear stamp set
  4. Creative Inspirations - Challenge #15 Tags
  5. Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge #11 Days Gone By (Vintage)
