Cheery Lynn Challenge. I started by wrapping some flowered paper around the side and putting Cheery Lynns french lattice over it. I added the Cheery Lynn dancing doily lace border around the edge of the lid. I put the mini flourish on the top and added a Rose that I made out of paper from party streamers. Makes a beautiful rose. Tucked three leaves from the Cheery Lynn leaf strip under the rose. I cut some flowers out of the paper that I used to cover the side and added them to the top for extra filler. I colored the beautiful Cheery Lynn hummingbird and placed it on top with the flowers.
Joan's Garden Challenge. I embossed the white background with a Cuddlebug hearts folder. I popped up a heart border which is a "Memorybox" die. Added a flourish by "My Favorite Things"to the bottom corner popping it up also. The butterfly is also a "Memorybox" die .

Cheery Lynn Sweetheart Challenge. I decided to do a card for a man. I created a Stampscape scene with a moon in it to go with the tag on the card. I always think black and white is so striking so went with the black and white theme. I framed the scene with a oval and embossed some leaves on the background using a cuddlebug folder. I then added the Cheery Lynn grass border along the bottom and placed a buck from Memorybox behind the grass. Attached my tag embossed with a Close To My Heart stamp. Added the Cheery Lynn rose leaves to the tag and the corner of the card.

Joan's Challenge. You had to make a tent style card using aqua, purple and light green paper and something from nature. I choose to use Fabscraps paper with a meadowlark on. I used a Spelbinder frame to cut the meadowlark from the paper. Added a purple frame. I used a Spellbinder flourish with some Cheery Lynn leaves. Made a flower from a punch. Added a tag with some text and pearls on it. I embossed up both edges of the card with a cuttlebug edge embossing folder.

Cheery Lynn Snowflake Challenge. I started with the window , shutters and window box from Memorybox. The cat looking out the window is Poppystamps.I hung Curtains in the window using Cheery Lynn Anastasia border. In the window box I used the Cheery Lynn small fanciful flourish. I added some Cheery Lynn snowflakes to the flourish instead of flowers to fit in with my snowflake theme. I cut a small Cheery Lynn doily in quarters and used two of the pieces to frame in the top of the card. I used liquid pearls and added it to the center of the snowflakes. The snowman image is Serendipity. I colored him with copics and added liquid applique to the snow on his hat, broom and birdhouse. I attached another Cheery Lynn snowflake to his hat. Finally I added a tag to finish off the card.

Joan's Garden Weekly Challenge. The challenge was to be blue and white, have a flower, a Thank You and use four corners. I use 4 Cheery Lynn corners arranged around the tear drop die of spellbinders. I then added a Cheery Lynn lace edge up the side of the card. I added some roses with some blue Cheery Lynn leaves behind them. I then added some white Cheery Lynn leaf flourishes. I added a Memory Box Butterfly and a Spellbinders Banner with silver Thank You sticker. Added a few pearls to the lace border and to the butterfly. Stamped a humming bird with vines to the center of the teardrop Spellbinder die. Put glossy accents over the hummingbird and vines to make them pop a bit.

This is a Card I created for the Cheery Lynn Winter White Challange That I called Winter frost. I took a photo last weekend of beautiful frosty trees that I used as my focal point. I then added the Cheery Lynn flourish across the top of the photo and added Cheery Lynn corners and snowflakes. I layered the snowflakes and popped them up. I then added a white pearl the center of each snowflake and to each corner point of the corners. I embossed " Winter Frost" on the label. I wish the photo of this card had of showed up the frost on the trees in the photo better as well as showed the different layers all popped up. Love working with these Cheery Lynn dies.
