I'm in the mood for cards....

Happy Sunday, Peeps! Stopping by this morning with a quick card and envelope that I made! I made this card for my hubby and used the following challenges as a guide (well actually the challenges inspired the card...heheee):



Unity Stamp Company Challenge: Doors and Windows- I created a door to open up!
Unity Opportunity Challenge- use flowers (Ippity Stamp - Simple Peace, Love, Happy- I used the bicycle wheels to stamp the flowers on the inside door cover, Ippity Stamp- Sweet Paper Pals- the girl is a flower pattern)
The Paper Variety- Create a matching envelope that uses 2 elements from your card- I stamped the Paper Pals and used Washi Tape on both.

Loved all of these challenges because I usually never make my cards interactive even though I love it when other people make fun, interactive cards! Also because it got me to use 4 out of several of the gorgeous Unity stamps that I received via mail last week right away and to dig into my SC kit stash for embellies!!! And, duh I should be stamping on all my envelopes to coordinate with my cards all of the time because it's so quick, easy, and adds such a personal touch! What have you learned recently from participating in challenges? I'd love to know....

Oh, and Linking up with the current NEON challenge at Do More With Less

Oh, just in case you love these stamps as much as I do...these are the four that I used:
Ippity: Life Bingo
Ippity: Sweet Paper Pals
Ippity: Simple Peace, Love, Happy
Unity and Simple Stories: {...specialize in memories}

Well, I hope everyone has a beautiful week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
