Senior Design Team

Tracy created her card for this week with a sweet spring image colored with Copic markers. Besides the recipe requirements, she added a Prima flower and some pretty satin ribbon. You can find more details about the card at Tracy's blog.

Regan found that what Simon Said was proving to be a little challenging, but she let loose and had fun and it all came together quite nicely. She added a couple other mats, stamping, paper piecing and flags to give her card some flair! For more photos and details, please visit her blog Emora Designs.

She says she followed the recipe, but is folding cheating ? It is all the right size, if you count what is around back ! Check out Jan's blog for a photo of the tag, and the appearance of the required flourish.

Design Team

Kim found this week's challenge to be extra fun to follow. Why? Kim says she was able to add lots of layers, flourishes, and embellishments - just the way she likes her cards! She even combined both the flourish and the bling by using a Zva Creative pearl sticker. For more inspiration from Kim, be sure to stop by her blog here!

C took the opportunity presented in this challenge to create a celebratory card for a friend. The base is 5x7 and there is a rhinestone will have to see the inside of the card for the 3x4.5 mat. To see more views and the details for this card check out C's blog at Trade Fish Designs!

Jennifer followed the recipe and used both paper with feather flourishes and real feathers to give this card extra pizazz! Head over to her blog to see more about what she did!

Angi was a bit challenged at first but found it fun to follow a recipe. She added a fun mini kraft paper bag to the front her garden themed card. She also placed the flourish and rhinestone on the front of the watering can to add more pizazz to the embellishment. To see more of this fun recipe creation please be sure to visit Angi's Blog.
