I recently found a new blog challenge, Tag Tuesday. I used to participate in a couple of tag challenges years ago, and it was fun to put a decorative tag together again. The theme was "jewelry" so I used a lot of pearls.
Stencils, Prima Color Bloom spray and Glimmer Mist, a clip art image in a microscope slide frame, trim, Prima flowers with pearls, "Hope" sticker and a ribbon tie all came together for the end result.

Joining with the Less is More crowd today -- choosing pink and black, one of my favorite color combinations. Details are pretty wide dotted ribbon from Club Stamp, a dry-embossed panel, and beautiful "imagine" die from Penny Black.

It's a celebration on Freshly Made Sketches...celebrating the 200th sketch! A combination of cardstocks in naturals, plus "wordy" Washi tape, Petaloo burlap embellishment, and a stick-on sentment.

Rush, rush to finish the cards in time for the 11 a.m. mail deadline at the local post office. I started the cards last week, but they did not turn out well at all! That meant I needed to start over, with only 30 minutes to spare. Simple is the answer, so simple is what I did. I found a card in my photo file of previous creations and decided on a flower (I have a lot of them!). Then I had to find complementary cardstock. As it turned out, it was already textured with dots. Generally, I write a note in each of the cards but this week I stamped a sentiment instead. My friends will forgive me.

Generally, I don't have a purpose in mind other than completing a challenge when I make a card for Sweet Sunday Sketch or any other challenge. This week is different, however. Our youngest son and his wife celebrate their second wedding anniversary and I needed a card! Everything came together with the digi sunflower from Power Poppy. Yellow and gray were the theme colors of the wedding two years ago; I made around 200 thank-you cards in these colors. This sunflower image worked perfectly.

The Bo Bunny Star-Crossed paper pad and matching buttons had just come in the mail, and I decided it would work for the latest Freshly Made Sketch. In addition, I could use my favorite new die from Intricutz, the delicate "Smile." (I would love to have a collection of these intricate words!)
