My blog friends, Greta and Cat, and I decided to do a little challenge of our own for World Cardmaking Day which is today.  The challenge was to use something someone else had sent us and to create a fall or winter card.

For my first card I used a flower stamped in copper that Cat had sent me.  Watercolored it with distress inks for a fall card.

My second card uses a die cut background that Greta sent me - added some snowflakes and a few gold sequins for a Christmas card.

Cat created a Halloween card with a bat that I sent her and a die cut panel from Greta.

Greta used some embossing powder and a die sent by two other friends.

Greta's second card uses a floral bouquet from Cat and the gradient stripe background from me.


This was all Cat's idea and I certainly had fun doing it - it kind of reminded me of the old 90 minute challenges on the HA Flickr group.

I linked my cards to Simon's challenge for today also.

Happy WCMD to everyone.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Betty, Thank you so much for playing along. Your cards are FABULOUS. I love the mondo Sakura in those fall colors. The edge bits are also a nice touch. YOur snowflake card is another stunner. What a great combination of elements, such an elegant Christmas card.

  2. This was so fun! So grateful cardmaking has brought the 3 of us together! Your cards are both gorgeous, Betty! Love how you colored the flowers & the snowflake card is wonderfully elegant!

  3. Beautiful cards all together.... love the gold on them. Your second card is so elegant

  4. Great cards Betty and what fun to challenge each other.

  5. While looking at all of these fabulous cards, I was thinking of our old HA Flickr Group, too :) Beautiful watercoloring and I love how you added those pretty snowflakes to your die cut background...a really elegant Christmas card!
