Two more challenges met

The theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is "anniversary". The background paper is from Use Em for Anything - Pastels from HOTP. The pansy digi is from Fred-She-Said and I double printed the flowers to layer them with 1/16 dots. The metal heart/arrow was in my stash. I went through a phase over a year ago of ordering various metal embellies from several sources. I am just now getting around to using them, but there isn't a manufacturer/designer listed on the bags.

I used the same background paper for this entry to Copic Colour Challenge. The only colour of the three listed this week that I had exactly was "prune" the purplish color on her hat, flower and soles of her shoes. The other colors were spectrum green (I used Mignonette) and pale blue (I used Ice Blue). The turtle digi was a freebie this week at Bugaboo along with the clown I used in an earlier post. The solid cardstock is from DCWV and the sentiment is a fabric sticker from HOTP. I love the metal flower with the bright teal/silver brad. I added some silver Dazzles to complete the card.

I hope to finish a couple of more cards for challenges today. I also want to upload more cards to my new shop! Purrfect Sentiments is on Shop Handmade. So far I am selling just completed cards. I give the option if you want a similar card - same thing but in pink or change the Happy Birthday to Happy Anniversary- then purchase the card closest to what you want and in the comment section or by emailing us at you can specify the changes. I will do my best to meet your choices. Exact paper match could be difficult, but similar paper (color, bright/pastel/ small pattern/stripes/solid) shouldn't be a problem. I know most of you make your own cards, but if you know of any one who would be interested in buying handmade cards send them my way. So far all of my cards are $2.75 with s/h $0.75. One big advantage to buying from Purrfect Sentiments is that you won't go to a shower/birthday party/retirement bach, etc and see the same card you have given by 3 or 4 other people too. If the satellite Internet connection settles down later today, I will be uploading more inventory.
