A Two-Fer Challenge Card

I'm ba-a-a-a-ack! The right paw is mostly usable again, and I'm back to stampin'! Out of the gate, I made a card for two challenges: the current Casual Fridays challenge to use a black card base:

and the current Dynamic Duos challenge to use Poppy Parade, Basic Black, and punches:

I went into The Heaplet and found a remnant of Poppy Parade DSP, then I made this:

Now that I look at this card, I may not be so in like with it any more. Hmmm. Maybe it needed rounded corners to cut all those straight lines. Too late, I've put the white layer on the inside already. Maybe a few pearls or gems?

Ah, well, I'm going back in for some more play time. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. ohh, this is one pretty and very striking card! I love all the clean edges! I have to work on these challenges myself next! Thanks for the inspiration, and I hear you on the poison thing! My son is super allergic to it, as my mom was. Standing downwind 20 ft would cover them both in blisters.

  2. Love your card and those colors are awesome together! So glad you could play along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. Love the darling trio of butterflies. Thanks for playing with us at Dynamic Duos!
