The Paper Shelter - The Most Adorable Jellyfishes

Good morning everyone!  We are starting a new challenge on the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog,  The theme this week is 'Dies and/or Punches'. Easy, right? You do not need to use a digi from The Paper Shelter to enter the challenge, but those using an image from The Paper Shelter will be eligible to win a $30 gift certificate.  Any winner not using a Paper Shelter digi will win 3 digis of their choice. 

For my DT project, I decided to make a card using the super cute digi The Most Adorable Jellyfishes. I think their name says it all!  This was a bit of a challenge for me, as I typically try to stick with digis of girls.  I thought it would be fun tot try this though, especially since it is summer:)  You can find this, along with tons of other amazing images over at PaperShelter.com


The colors I used are: large jellyfish: YG00, YG03, YG21 & YG23; small jellyfish - YR000, YR00, YR61 & YR68; fishes V12, V15 & V17; water - B0000, BG0000 & BV0000. The image is printed on X-press paper.


Here is a closer look:



 For the card, I also used Bazzill cardstock, paper from Doodlebug Designs, Wild Orchid flowers, and Memory Box die.  I also chalked the edges. Would you like to play along with our 'DIes and/or Punches' challenge?  It's really easy...just head on over to the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see all of the rules. You can also check out the amazing DT inspiration projects by my fellow DT members.  I do hope you'll join us!  Thank you for taking a look.  Have a fabulous day!  I hope it's a crafty one:)

Simply Betty - June Fairy

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a lovely week. Half way there!! 
I'm stopping by to share a project I made for Simply Betty's June Progressive Challenge.  This is the first time in a long while that I have had the time to play along, and I had so much fun with it! You can find information about her challenge in her Simply B Stamps Facebook Fan Page.  Here is a look at my card:


For the challenge, we were to use the colors black, red, yellow and cream.  I decided to make her wings the black element...not a color I would typically use for fairy wings, but I am loving how they look!  We also had to include some glitter, which I have added to the sentiment.  I also used Wink of Stella on her wings, but it is hard to capture that in the photo. Here is a closer look at the digi and sentiment:



Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week:)

Hugs,
Bonnie
