Merry Monday #186, Curtain Call, The Challenge and Seize the Birthday.

I usually only show one card per post and sometimes that means only one challenge, too.  Inspiration hit me like a brick and I have eight cards ready, some with a deadline approaching, so today I'm posting two cards for two challenges each.

First up is my card for The Challenge and Seize the Birthday.
This card came about because I was doing some smooshing for a couple of other challenges and thought these HLS butterflies worked with the sketch (see below).

Doing a complete 180, I have a card for Merry Monday and Curtain Call. Back to Christmas and no color. ;)
I'm sorry the glitter of the snowflakes and the shimmer of the silver don't show up as beautiful on screen as they do IRL.  The snowflakes from SSS and CF were die cut from cs and then translucent embossing paste was applied and sprinkled with glitter.  The PB sentiment is embossed in silver and I just had to add a tiny strip of silver foil.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope your inspiration has returned after our holiday break.

  8. Two absolutely delightful cards, Bobby!! Love your first card with those prettily smooshed butterflies. The bit of dp and that embossing folder are just the perfect backdrop to them. So pretty! And a great take on that sketch too. Love your snowflake card! The sparkle shows through, and I just love this wonderful CAS design. Very cool. Have a great weekend. Bev

  14. Oh, wow, Bobby, you really have that mojo juice flowing and these are excellent works of card art!! I've never heard of inspiration hitting like a brick (hey, OWWW!), but any of us would be willing to take the pain if it resulted in this kind of output, lol!! Hugs, Darnell

  19. Eight cards? WOW...and if the remaining 6 are as stunning as these two are, then we are in for some phenomenal treats! Butterflies and snowflakes: two of my favourite things and you've done both of them up beautifully! The signs of summer in the first, and the gentleness of winter (it can...at times) in the second have me smiling...
    Hugs~c
