Have fun on your Birthday

I was asked to create the Editor's Selection cards for the July edition of Making Cards Magazine. I had to use the super Mermaid Folk papers that were free with the magazine and also available on the free CD.

The aim of these cards is to show what can be created using the free images and papers along with just a few basic stash items.


For this card I rounded the top left and bottom right corners of the image with a corner punch and added a Craft Creations sentiment on top of a die cut flower.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafts and Me August Challenge - Anything Goes
Fantasy Challenge 2 - Anything Fantasy Goes
The Sisters of Craft August Challenge - Always Anything Goes
Pile It On Challenge 115 - Die Cut Embellishments
Crafting When We Can Challenge 126 - Show us your Dies and Punches

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

I've loved all of these mermaid cards. Fabulous papers, and you've been creative with these designs. Using limited stash can be tricky, but you're doing the most out of your supplies, and your cards really don't need anything more.
