A Recipe Challenge

Good morning everyone. It's another challenge from The Pink Elephant. This one is a recipe challenge. We were to use 1 ribbon, 2 squares and something that sparkles. I eneded up making 3 cards with this challenge. Can you tell I had alot of fun with it. There are still some days left to play along. So hop on over and hang out with everyone. You can click on the photos to get a better view.
I really like how this card turned out. I have been wanting to use this felt flower border ever since I purchased it a few years ago. I just never really knew how to use it. So I covered one of the squares with it. Simple, but I love the contrast up against the white background. I am also determined to use up more of my "older" supplies. I'm planning on sending this card to DH. We are in a little rut right now, so I thought this would pick him up abit. I hope he'll like it.
This card is soo rustic and old looking. Here, I used some stamps that I purchased last year and I think I have only used once. The snow flakes at the bottom are actually embossed cardstock from the Cuttlebug and I cut each piece out by hand. I used the Distress stickles for the red and some regular star dust stickles for the clear. The paper is KI Memories and some craft cardstock that I added Distress ink to the top.
Just a simple Halloween card that I used some of those Sandylion Essentials stickers. I have a ton of these little packs and I want to use them up. The trick or treat is a gel thingy from Karen Foster. And the ribbon has these bats and cats sewn into it. I have had this ribbon for years to.
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful day. It's a very beautiful day here in Charm City. We've turned the air off this week and have opened up the windows. Nothing better than fresh air flowing through the house. It's starting to feel abit like fall. I LOVE IT!!!! No more Hugs from Charm City

Fabulous cards Nancy and each so different! Love what you did with the felt border. I know what you mean, I've got some too and have never used them. (That's really a romantic card, he's gonna love it). The snowman is the cutest and I love your Halloween too. Great takes on the challenge. Hugs, D
