{Just In The Nick of Time}


                         

Wow, I rarely post this late but today has just been a whirlwind! Today I am playing along with two of my favorite challenges:


and

                                  
 This weeks challenge at CAS-ual Fridays was to create a 4x9 card, something I have never ever done. So, I thought I would give it a try. The color challenge at Color Q was beeee-utiful this week so I knew I just had to play along with my favorite color challenge! To create my card I used the A Muse Studio large butterfly die and ran it through my Cuttlebug three times using lily bee designs patterned paper.  I than did the same thing using smallest butterfly die and a piece of patterned paper from the DCWV Lace and Linen stack. I added a strip of Bashful Blue patterned paper that I punched with my Ek Success Abstract Circles punch, and  I also punched a strip of Kiwi Kiss card stock (didn't have Lucky Lime-ade but thought it was a very close match) using my SU Scallop border punch. I finished off the card with a pretty piece of gray lace and a sentiment from the A Muse Studio "Essential Sentiments" cling stamp set. For this being my very first 4x9 card I am thrilled with the way it turned out. I hope you like it to!

ps- sorry for the bad picture, I didn't get a chance to take my picture till after the sun went down, I'll try to take a better pic in the morning.
