Michelle Leone is the team member who put together this months kit, and it is wonderful! What a FANTASTIC kit to start with for my first time...my cards practically made themselves because of all the wonderful and beautiful elements Michelle added to her kit! Take a look at what we all got to work with:
Michelle used DCWV's Serene and Elegant paper collection with the beautiful shades of blue & coral, lovely gold accents, pretty patterns, and more to start out her kit, and then added lots of images and sentiments for us all to work with!
My 1st card came together in minutes...love, LOVE the bright coral colored flower (Altenew's Hope) against the white Bold Borders: Polka Dots die (PTI) and also PTI's Penned Elegance II for the birthday sentiment.
Isn't that DSP gorgeous?!! I used one of PTI's To The Point Edgers dies along with some of the beautiful ribbon Michelle included in the kit to outline the pointed edge. I stacked the 3 "hope" dies together for dimension and added one of the Delicates dies and a few of the gems also included in the kit to finish this card.
Another quick and easy card using more of the DSP, ribbon, and die cut thank you and flower Michelle included.
Had to make a fun shaker card with the adorable squirrel holding a flower and adding the gems...used more of the DSP with one of my Pierced Feature Frames (PTI) to frame it out.
My last card came together just as easily as the rest with more of the beautiful DSP and those lovely ribbons in the blue and coral...and of course the other 2 Delicates die cuts and the Penned Elegance sentiment embossed in gold.
And here they are ALL together! I could so easily have kept going but wanted to save some of the kit contents because I had learned from guesting a few times that I would see what the other gals had done and wished I had saved some supplies to CASE! Make sure you stop by to see what the other gals did with their kits (HERE)...I know you will amazed as this was such an AWESOME kit to work with! Thank you Michelle!! And a BIG thanks to Lindsey for her beautiful photography skills too!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
Welcome to the team friend! What a wonderful start you've made. All of your cards are stunning as always! Your first card is truly jaw dropping, gorgeous.
