JBelle Tuesday challenge and a CAS challenge card

Hi everyone! Today is Tuesday and that means another Jbelle challenge! This week's challenge is to make a spring card. There is a focus on using rub-ons. I am plum all out of rub-ons, but I can do spring!!

Everyone is invited to play along. You don't need to have JBelle supplies to play, but if you don't have any, you can check out the store and see what strikes your fancy.

My card uses the super cute Imaginisce Twitterpated bird stamp along with Imaginisce Fairest of them All DP. I colored the birdie with Copic markers and then painted her with Bubble Gum Shimmerz. The 3 Dew Drops at the bottom are from the Island Blossom bottle.

If you play along, be sure to use keyword JBE045 when you upload your card so we all can find it.

Don't forget to check out the other DT blogs for their spring cards!

I also have another card to share. This card is for this week's SCS CAS challenge which was to use punches on your card. I LOVE making CAS cards using punches!! Makes it simple, quick and easy -just punch, stamp a sentiment and you are good to go!

I was tempted to bust out my butterfly punches, but since I just got SUs 5 Petal flower punch, I knew I HAD to use it. I also used SUs scallop border and boho blossom punches. All the paper on the card is from Basic Grey Bittersweet as is the jumbo glazed brad. The sentiment is from Verve's Asian Flair. I painted the flowers with Angel Wings Shimmerz.

Thanks for stopping by!
