the second is a very frilly, very feminine "girl card" for my sister-in-law, barbara:
(vintage sheet music & greeting card from garage sales; patterned paper: ek success, basic grey; flowers: petaloo, prima; grunge board: tim holtz (painted with metallic white acrylic paint & sprayed with pink glimmer mist); chipboard bird: tattered angels; pearls: k&co; other: gluedots, colorbox inks, white generic cardstock; inside of card has the original verse from the vintage birthday card, which reads, "A birthday filled with sunny hours, With music sweet and true, And happiness all round about, Is what I'm wishing you." cool, no?!)
and yes, this is one of those rare occasions in which i not only MADE two cards...i actually really *like* both of them! plus, did i mention the magnificent DT creations, which can be seen here?! oh yeah, and you'll want to check out the work of our guest designers, camilla and christine as well!
of course, my favorite cards for any challenge are always the ones that the CAARDVARKS readers send in...so get busy and link up your melodious creations by midnight on 9-3 for a shot at some rather cool swag from scrapbook express !
