Variety is the Spice of Life

Variety is the spice of life, and so are challenges, right?! I have a few cards showcased over on the Artful Delight Blog featuring products from July's Card Kit. The July Artful Delight Card Kit goodies contains products with such a soft color palette, and I put that to work here. I honestly love these kits because of the variety of products they offer which allows me to play in challenges that I might have otherwise missed out on. For instance, the lovely Authentique papers from the Delightful Collection included in the kit influenced a card with Authentique's July Sketch Challenge in mind.


Next up, a more simple card that features the stamp set included in the kit as well as the mist and solid cardstock!


Papers from Basic Grey's What's Up Collection included in the kit gave me the opportunity to participate in the Basic Grey Challenge: Things with Wings.

I'll be entering both these cards in the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge!  There are a few July Artful Delight Card Kits left, you can check them out here!

Thank you so much to those of you that took time out of your day to send me wishes on this post. Have you seen the Rock Your Kit giveaway? Check it out here!

Woosh, I think that is enough variety for one post. I hope you have an excellent day!

  16. I'm a sucker for polka dots and then add in a bird - I'm hooked! The misted clouds on your 2nd card are so fun. And the diagonal pattern on the PP panel reminds me of rain.
