Cute Card Thursday - Easter

Happy Thursday!

Our challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is Easter! Our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps

I took some poetic license with the Easter challenge and opted for Easter colors included in this manly card...

Stamps:  Gus Fishing (Bugaboo)
Paper: K&Co
Ink: Copics
Accessories:  Brads

My hubby and my father-in-law are avid fishermen. I loved this stamp of Gus Fishing because it reminds me of them.

I changed "beer" to "tea" because this is not a beer group.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday!

Our challenge this week at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge is ANYTHING GOES!

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund:

My inspiration for the layout actually came from the Elizabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog. I just love their header and took elements from their header to incorporate into my card. I flipped the layout because of the direction of the stamp. I wanted to keep the focus on the card rather than carry it off the card.

I colored my image using lots of green for the Make It Colourful "Colour with Green" Challenge.

I layered my bows and added a Build-a-Brad with the checkerboard to complete the theme. 
Papertake Weekly "One for the Girls" Challenge
Won't you join our ANYTHING GOES challenge? Just remember to use a stamp that 7 Kids College Fund carries to be eligible for the prize!
