Creative Sisters Monday Challenge #4 and Winners!!!

The Creative Sisters Monday Challenge is being hosted by my sister, Linda, these next two weeks.  The challenge is to use a punch.  So, dust off those punches, and get creative. You can use what ever else you want, but you must include a punch! 

This is my entry to Linda's challenge:


I used the Paper Wishes border punch system for my butterfly border.  They have a wide selection of punches available that when used with the border system, creates perfectly placed borders.  The stamp is one from my own collection, that I stamped in brown ink and matted with brown.  I added just a touch of stickles to the center of the flower and also to the center of the butterflies.   Then added the sentiment and one simple pearl.  You can see another version of this card below.


I used a scissor border and the butterfly punch border, then some stickles and a simple pearl.  I really liked how both of these came out - very simple and elegant.  Paper Wishes makes some Dazzle Stickers that are stackable...and I wish I had some of the butterflies to add to the center of the flower.  I think it would have set it off perfectly.  I will have to place an order and try this card again!

I think that is what makes all of us "papercrafters" so unique.  We always strive to do it a bit different - a bit better...and reach out to new ideas and products!!

I want to thank Paper Wishes again, for sponsoring Creative Sisters Monday Challenges this month.  I've had so much fun with both these challenges! Now for my blog candy!



Paper Wishes has four of these fantastic books of papers and tags - and pages of ideas and inspiration.  I will be sending the winner, Journal Kit for the Earthy Girl,  This collection is perfect for the spring - and I think who ever receives it will be filled with inspiration.

To win my blog candy - you must be a follower of my blog and leave a comment.  That's it.  Super simple.

The winner will be picked at the end of the challenge (April 4th).  Now, hop over to my sisters blog for her challenge and to see her amazing blog candy.  She's got an amazing project for you and  a super Guest Designer and I'm looking forward to meeting her!

I want to thank everyone who entered my challenge this month and my wonderful Guest Designer, Corylyn Dimmer for all her wonderful inspiration!  Corylyn please watch your mail for a thank you package coming your way!  Everyone outdid themselves and I'm just so inspired by each of you.  Now, to announce the winner of my challenge "Think Spring".  The winner was chosen at random and is.....Linda Dale
