A Trifecta!

Yes folks -  I have 3 items to share today -  all made for various challenges.

First up is a cute polka dot kraft bag that I decorated for gift giving. I made this for the Color Challenge over on Split Coast to use cream, black and crumb cake, and for the Less Is More challenge - to use Kraft and Cream.  I decided to step down from the SCS Color Challenge DT this week and so Karen chose colors I might have chosen and the optional dessert was to go CAS (my usual style!)

The bow is a sneak peek of a template from Creations by AR that is being released on Saturday (please stop by on Sat to see several fun projects I made using the bow and one other template being released!) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
My second creation is a card made for the Runway Inspired Challenge.  This was the runway inspiration:
and here is my card.
I paper pieced the ladies dress, colored her skin, hair and the flower in her hair with Copics, cut her out and layered her over a black Wonky Rectangle.  I stamped the sentiment and cut that with a smaller Wonky Rectangle.  Both images are popped up on form tape.  Both stamps are Hero Arts

And my third card was made for the CAS-ology Cue Card:  Fairytale.
My cute little frog prince who is just waiting to be kissed - is from a mini set from Waltzingmouse called Heroines - Fairy Princess.  I framed him with a Postage Stamp Nestability and added orange Tiny Twinkles to his crown (hopefully to attract the ladies!)

I hope you'll stop by again on Saturday -  I'll have a fun post of two new templates being released by Creations by AR!
