Caardvarks Challenge Cards

For the most recent Caardvarks challenge we received some really awesome acetate and frosted "papers" from Shortcuts to use for our creations.... I just loved it! It's been so long since I've worked with nice clear materials for cards and I had so much fun with it.

The above card was for an SCS sketch challenge last week. I used DCWV glitter paper for the squares and Prima flowers for the embellishments. The main flower also has layers of stamped images from Inkadinkado.

A super simple card with the frosted sheet. I stamped the butterfly and sentiment with Stazon ink, colored the back of the butterfly with copics, then added rhinestones and Smooch paint for the front a little bling. The panel was then attached with brads.

The fish card is my personal favorite. I used paper from Scenic Route and cut out the fish images. The letters are from Chatterbox, and I cut the black scallops from the packaging of the alphabet letters and used it for the card.

The card is for the sketch challenge. The sentiment and flowers are an older set from Papertreyink. I used Primas for the embellishement. The frosted card base was embossed with my cuttlebug swirls folder.

The above card also follows the current sketch challenge on Caardvarks. This one uses stamps from Impression Obsession and lots of Prima flowers. My daughter has a couple more sweet 16 parties to go to this summer, so now I'll be all set with at least one card!

If you're interested in participating in the sketch challenge then take a peek at the Caardvarks blog for instructions on how to enter (and possibly win) some really cool goodies! Here's a sneaky peaky of the sketch to get you started:

All of these cards are awesome. I will say that the last one...the sweet 16 card with the Impression Obsession image totally knocked my socks off. How fun!

Omigosh, I love the fish card. You are soooo talented. I'm definitely gonna steal this one--the very next card I make but I think I'll have to use Cricut cut fishes because in all the tons of dp I have I can't think of one with fishies. LOL Have a great weekend.
