New card challenge

Hello on this sunny Tuesday afternoon. It's finally sunny today! Frances and I made some kites out of construction paper this morning and she is all excited to "fly" them in the park this afternoon. I use the term "fly" loosely because I don't think they are really going anywhere! Mine at least looks like a kite (a very pathetic kit - lol), but she just taped some string to the back of a piece of construction paper for hers. I kept asking her is she wanted me to cut it for her, but she said no she liked it as is. I love how two year olds are satisfied by the simple things. If only us adults could be that happy about things :) I will try to take some pictures of our kite flying adventure and post them. I have some Nikki Sivils "We are Family" paper that would be perfect for them!

Now for the card challenge - Tuesdays are challenge day on the Bo Bunny blog and today's challenge is to use the new Bo Bunny wraps and trinkets on a card. I love the wraps and trinkets so much I hadn't even opened mine yet! I am "saving" them for this special layout, but alas no layout or project is ever special enough so I am glad this challenge forced me to open up my stash! It felt great to use them and they are just so pretty. Here's my card for the challenge:

I used the Timpiece card kit for this and I have to say I am falling IN LOVE with the card kits! They speed up my card making so much. I have never made a card from the directions (although those are fabulous) and still my cards come together in no time. Since the bases are all cut and prescored in the kit all I have to do is pick out the shape I want and start adding stuff. I cut the the flowers with my sizzix Tim Holtz die (Tattered Florals) and then added some paper from the mini 6 x 6 paper pads and chipboard, diecuts, and rubons from the card kit. And then of course I had to add the wraps and trinket for the challenge. I used the wraps behind my flower (the brown and twin) and for the center of my flowers (black and white). I even tried misting for the first time too! I think I got a little too excited and sprayed a little too much, but now I know for next time right?

If you want to play along you just may win some Bo Bunny goods! Go to this POST for details.

Have a great day!
