It's time for another challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out!
For this challenge, my DT card features a cute little critter from Patties Creations that just begs to grace the front of a baby card!  Computer-generated sentiments, a few punched stars and a scrap of ribbon join in the fun of welcoming a new little one. So sweet!
·   Digi- Patties Creations (Pattie Boops Giraff)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Sentiments- Computer Generated
·   Circle template and small star punch from my scrapbook stash

My second card features a sweet digi image from Cute As A Button’s current Progressive Challenge named Sailor Girl. The card base is made with an A2 sized card in a pretty grey marbled paper that I've had in my stash for a while. It is from a set of wedding invitations that I found on clearance somewhere for a great price... and couldn't resist!  It looks a little sea-salty, don’t you think? The sentiment is from a blog that offers lots of fun, funny and sometimes snarky sentiments that are FREE!

I recently stumbled upon a wonderful website that provides dozens of templates for paper projects that range from creative to ingenious. I saved many of them to my laptop for later use… but chose to use one of them to make a card for the current Butterfly Challenge. (which I posted yesterday.) I realized that I could use the second photo on the template to create a second card. This time I used the instructions on the Butterfly Challenge blot to create this Mini-Miura Fold card (which is a new fold for me!)
My card features all three of the required colors (Marigold, Misty Moss, and Maroon) and all three themes (metal charm, fold, and butterfly.) The card went together easily mostly with scraps of patterned papers and ribbon and the belly band adds a unique touch to the card. Plus, I was able to use a few sentiments from a fun digi set from Polka Dot Orchard that I won at the recent Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
·   Colored Butterfly Digi- Freebie from The Toymaker (Heart Butterfly)
·   Additional coloring added with Spectrum Noir Classique markers
·   Instructions for Mini-Miura Fold are provided HERE
·   Inside Sentiment- Polka Dot Orchard Digi Set (Younger Than Tomorrow)
·   Satin ribbon, gold charm, patterned paper, and other items from my stash.
