W&W 3rd Birthday! A tale of two Ks

w&w_b3rdb_challengefinal

This is my last post for today ... promise!!  I know I've been invading your space, but I LOve Winnie & Walter, and every one of the Birthday Bash Challenges!

You may wonder about my blogpost title:  A tale of two Ks... Kerren Baker, and Kelly Griglione have Two different Challenges:  Off the Page ... and Stencil!  You must run over to see their beautiful creations!!!  for some reason Blogger isn't playing nice with copy/paste today!

I've combined those two Challenges, and created one card that fits both ... ready?  First a close-up so you can see the acetate addition, and my favorite way of using W&W's Creative Screenings - a.k.a. stencils.

Inside:  "SO colorful!"

was dry-embossed onto my cardstock,
and those darling butterflies, and my tag, are from
see how they magically change color as they leave the page!?
Another perfect word:  Friend[s] from
 
 
I hope it's okay with you girls that I've combined your Challenges ... both wonderful - but I think you play cards beautifully together!  xx

Supplies:
Paper:  a bit of packing cardboard for the card base!  [thanks Michelle Leone!] and a very old, much loved Cosmo Cricket, vellum from PTI
Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh

You have had a lot of fun playing cards lately! I LOVE the gray on gray and the touch of pink on the butterflies. This is just amazing design!! LOVE!!

Kelly Griglione said...

Ack! Michele!!! Your card is gorgeous with the tone on tone and layers, yes. Your card is clever with using the stencil not for ink, but for dry embossing, yes. But what i LOVE most is the STORY it tells!!! Everything makes sense when you read the inside!! Magical. Thoughtful. Intentional. All these reasons why I love it so much!!! Gah! Xo

Are there no limits to your creativity!!??!! This is an amazing card Michele. Love that the butterflies get their color as the break free, what a fun design element! I'll think of them as the two of us escaping on some exciting crafty shopping adventure!!
