Did you know that Club Scrap has a forum over at their website?
Each month there are lots of great challenges over in the forum. These challenges provide creative motivation and provide a great social outlet for sharing your work.
One of the challenges is the Monthly Card Sketch. At the start of each month Merilyn posts a sketch and you have the month to play along. If enough people play along there is even a chance to win a prize. I decided to play along this month.

This is the sketch for April and these are the cards I created.

For my final card I just couldn't cover up the beautiful floral design so I decided to leave it as a simple note card.

For all of my cards I followed Tricia's instructions HERE for this awesome three piece bow. They are so elegant and quite easy to make. Once you make one you will totally be hooked.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Your next stop on the hop is Tina's blog.
Don't forget to check out all the Dahlia products HERE and come back tomorrow to see my layout for the Club Scrap Idea Deck Challenge!

Club Scrap April Artist Team Challenge

Spring has finally arrived here in Upstate New York!
Can I tell you how much better life is when the sun is shining and there is no snow on the ground!
To celebrate the arrival of Spring the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge this month was to create handmade  flowers and/or butterflies to accent our pages, cards or projects.

For the challenge I decided to use this months Dahlia kit to create a layout. My cousin recently got married and this kit is perfect for some wedding photos.

I used my the solid colored paper from the kit to create roses and the butterflies. I had a butterfly punch in my stash and used my Tim Holtz pine cone die to create the roses.

I used my Moroccan Spice bonus stencil with iridescent medium to add some texture.

Thanks for stopping by today. Next stop on the hop is Roni over at Ink Stains.
If you lost your way or wish to return to Club Scrap to start from the beginning go HERE.
You can pick up your very own Dahlia kit HERE and play along!
