I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Party Time Tuesday Challenge #59-Monochromatic

The challenge this week at Party Time Tuesday was to create a monochromatic card.  Since it is nearly the first day of spring and St. Patrick ’s Day is in a few days I decided to use shades of green as my main colour.   I used several layers of green embossed papers and coloured my pretty Michael Strong’s Cloisonn√© tulip with my different green Copics then added radiant pearls in an oyster shell colour on top of the butterfly and tulip flower to give the card some shine and texture.
This was a fun challenge like always.   I am off to my stamp room to clean up my mess.  Happy stamping everyone.  Have a creative day.



  1. Lovely card, Judy! I like the way you added the different layers and also, the embossing! Hugs,
