As if I don't have enough challenges going on right now, I've actually gone looking for more. Paper challenges - not "life" challenges. Here are cards I've created in the past few days to meet some challenges at some fun "paper play" sites I belong to.

One of the challenges at  Paper Craft Planet in the "Cuttlebug-ers" Group was to create a card using dies, border punches and stickers. We were required to use 2 dies, 2 border punches and 3 stickers. Here's my effort for this challenge:
Another challenge at PCP was to combine embossing folders with dies to create our cards, using any colors. This watch die from Spellbinder Paper Arts is one of my favorites. Maybe because it's very vintage and I love me some vintage.

I belong to a group at Facebook called "Craft Therapy". The very talented Robin Cozart created the group for us and she gave us a challenge for the weekend. And she didn't make it easy on us. Here's the challenge: Create a card using the colors pink, orange and white. Use 1 square, 2 circles, 2 buttons, sentiment, ribbon, assorted flowers and 2 embellishments. YOWZERS!! Well, this took a while and I almost lost sleep over it...almost. Here's my result:
I'm fairly happy with it. I'm not at all happy with the size of the buttons. If they were smaller, I would be much happier, but they were the only size I had in the color I wanted. I got by with using 2 sparkly brads in the center of the flowers as the 2 embellishments.
