A Warm Welcome to 4 new Members and 2 Challenges


 It has been a while since my last new member greeting and I have now 4 new members who joined my blog - I made it past 150! That is fantastic - thank you all for joining and thanks to my long term members for  staying with me!

Stephanie (sorry did not find a link)
Petra aka Hellerlittle

And if you have time, you may visit them and say hello - they have wonderfully creative blogs, full of inspiration!

And here is your welcome picture:


As my other recent welcome pictures this is also from the Corning Glass Museum. The artist is Vera Liskova, a Czech glass artist and the piece is titled "Anthem of Joy in Glass". I hope it brings you joy looking at it. I sure like it!

But now back to cards... I found two fun challenges to combine. Taheera always finds those wonderful inspiration pictures and the AEI♥U Challenge - make your won designer paper is just up my alley!




I used the Avery Elle set -To the Point and stamped my background. It comes with those little filler stamps, whick I inked up in yellow, neon pink and aqua and randomly filled in some of those spaces. The banners are from the same set, as are the sentiment, which I embossed in silver (a nod to the fork in Taheera's picture....)


Added some Paper Candi and aqua strips on the sides. 



Challenge 9

And after suggestion of several of my commenters I am also adding this car to this weeks CASE this sketch challenge and Fusion challenge - as you can see its just the sketch here...


 

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I am in love with this, Cornelia!! With everything about it!! I think there is a sketch challenge somewhere that has flags in the upper left-hand corner. I'll try and remember where I saw it. This is really a winner in my book! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Julie Beech said...

Think it was Fusion + CASe the sketch, Darnell. Love how you echoed the pointed napkin in your DP, brill colours too. :)

Barb Ghig said...

OMGoah, Cornelia...You did an amazing job on creating your own patterned paper...actually, it's more like 'High end Designer Paper'! I love how you added the pop of color with your neon inks, too!

By the way, it looks like your card also qualifies for this week's challenge at CTS, if you're interested: http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2014/06/case-this-sketch-81.html
