HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYONE!
WOW, can you believe it's midweek already!
Time's just a flyin'!!
Today I have two challenge cards to share with you. First is my creation for the challenge over at THE SISTERHOOD. Today our hostess is Terri and she's asked us to embellish with RIBBON & BRADS.
(click on image to enlarge)For this creation I have used one of the sweet 'Victorian Children' images from Nicecrane Designs for my focus. Isn't she just the sweetest!! My apricot organza wired ribbon is from Michaels and the large orange brads are Basic Grey.
Please be sure to pop over to our Challenge Blog for all the details and if you need to be inspired before joining the fun ... be sure to check out the creations shared there by my 'sistahs' ... you're sure to find inspiration from these ladies ... a very talented bunch if I do say so myself!! LOL!!

My second creation today is for the Crafty Secrets Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. Marcy is our hostess and she's asked us to "Go Beyond the Fold" ... what does that mean you ask ... well it means don't just finish the FRONT of your card ... do the INSIDE and even the BACK!
(click image to enlarge)This was such a great challenge for me ... I'm GUILTY of leaving the inside of my cards blank until I either need one to send or need to get them ready to sell at a craft show! My Bad!!
Here's a peek at the inside of my card. The sentiment reads Birthday Blessings.
And, here you can see I have used the same designer paper on the back that was used as the background on the front. The image I used today is called "POPPY" from Crafty Secrets and I have colored it with Prismacolor markers.
Since these are both Birthday cards ... I'd like to share them in a few other challenges.
