HYCCT Rest of Day 1 Challenge Cards

There were three challenges issued on the first day of the month long HYCCT event.  This was the second challenge - to use orange and/or red which represent courage and strength.  I used Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch for my layout.  The doily stamp is from Sweet 'N Sassy as is the sentiment. The butterfly is from Memory Box dies.  I put a horizontal strip of masking paper across the card before I stamped the doily so that I could make this with as few layers as possible.  I drew the black lines with a marker before taking the tape off.

The third challenge was to make a relatively flat card.  The butterfly is popped up on a flat card.  The butterfly and dogwood blooms are stamps from the Hero Arts/Sizzix set as is the butterfly framelit die.
The sentiment is from Avocado Arts.

Thanks for coming by!


  1. They are both so pretty, Harriet! Love your stamps!

  2. Stunning, both cards are wonderful. I especially love the colors on the one for my sketch! And in my opinion you can not go wrong with butterflies! Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!
