 I really like how the colours you chose pop off the card against the kraft background.  Your layout, although clean and simple, is effective.

CMM83 | Photo Inspiration

Welcome to another edition of the Card Makin' Mamas Challenge!

We hope you enjoyed the last challenge and are ready to create and inspire with a new challenge!


Warmer weather, rain showers, blooming flowers... Be sure to share what inspired you to create your CARD! Was it the colors, the flowers, the layers? Maybe, it's the texture or that cute bunny rabbit?!

Design Team Favorites CMM81

Thank you for joining us for CMM81!

It's obvious our Card Makin' Mamas & Papas love their layers...certainly made it difficult for the Design Team to choose just one card as their favorite!

Sharon, I think that your masculine card is wonderful, the image and colouring of course is perfect but combined with the background paper choices, it pops off the card.   The metallic colouring on the bike has me itching to try some new colour choices.  Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to try something new.
Love your card, Eret! You have put so much time and detail into it. The birdcage looks gorgeous. I love the sheen and dimension on it and the fact that you created your own cut file for it too. Very clever! Love the detailing with the embossing powder around the frame. A very cleverly constructed card with such careful attention to detail.


DT Carolyn | #9 LeeAnn
Love the background papers and how well she coordinated the colors of her image to the background. Just super cute!


DT Kim | #37 Danielle
I love everythig about this card. The colors, the image, the flowers and the way it is all layered together is wonderful! Simply sweet!



DT Maria | #171 Shirley
Very sweet card, pretty stamp and the paper colours work very good together!
I love all the elements of this card.  The colouring is perfect as well as the layering of the card and embellishments.  Thanks for sharing!

I like this sweet image, and all of the embellishments. The tools, colors, and the whole design is wonderful!


Thanks for a fabulous challenge!

Winner & Design Team Favorites CMM80

Time for another Challenge Winner and the Design Team Favorites!

Lots of Thanks to last month's sponsor: Aurora Wings!


and our random.org winner is...


CONGRATULATIONS!!!
(the winner has been emailed)


And now on to our
Design Team Favorites
where the Design Team chooses one of your cards and gives YOU a creative high five!


I love this card, the layout is brilliant and all the embellishments work without taking the focus off your lovely image and coloring.



As soon as I saw this Julie I was blown away! Love the white on white and how you coloured the gorgeous image. All the beautiful embellishments and die cuts and the extra stamping around the image. It all works so well together.



I love how clean this card is. The scallop, embossed background and twine set the stage for the image and sentiment. They aren't too overpowering and don't clutter up the card allowing the image to be the focus.




DT Kim | #97 Rebekah
This is gorgeous. The colors of the papers, flowers and of course coloring work perfectly together. Seriously this is in one word...fantabulous! Love it!

This card jumped out at me.  I absolutely love everything about it, the colours, embellishments and layout.  Just gorgeous.

Just perfect, like colors, shading, and image selection. I like flowers. I can not stop looking at it again and again!



DT Maria | #78 Maya
I'm in love with this card. I like the image, colours, and flowers. Fabulous card!

I was immediately drawn to your project, the softness, the feminity and of course the gorgeous sparkle. Well done.


The embossing, the sparkle, the bronze mirri card really hit the challenge theme head on! The flowers and burlap add wonderful texture. This is would look great framed on the wall! Love it, Linda!



Thanks for a fabulous challenge!
