challenge card AND new video!

I've been watching "Make A Card Monday" since March (when my best friend, Christine, introduced it to me)! I love Kristina's creative cards and the way she shares awesome techniques every week. It makes having a case of the Mondays a whole lot sweeter.

Recently, she began a weekly color challenge. I've been dying to participate, but always seemed to find out too late - or have too much on my plate already to take on another creative feat. This week, however, I decided to make the time. I also decided to film my efforts and kill two birds with one stone - since I needed to prep a new "Classy Crafts" video anyway.

Here is her inspiration: An ad from a Pier 1 catalog...

And here is my card (sitting next to the sweet dandilions my darling girl brought home for me from the park this afternoon).

Here is the video of me making the card: (btw - if you want a list of supplies I used, they are listed in the credits at the end of the movie). Enjoy!

Way cute--I never would have thought to use that color scheme, but it turned out gorgeous with that butterfly!

BTW--gotta love the dandelions. :-)
