May's What You Got

When I sat down to write this post, I realized that I forgot to ever select a winner from April's What You Got participants! So, without any further ado, the lucky winner, as selected by is Carrie! Please email me at with your snail mail address and I'll get your prize into the mail!

This month Nancy, Dawn and I agreed to try to work on something with Berry Bliss designer paper and our only limitation was that we had to use three different papers from the series. I have to admit, that I'm not really all that fond of my creation now that its finished and all, but I'll be brave and post it nonetheless. However, I must say that I adore what the girls came up with.

I started with Julee Tillman's Mojo Monday challenge from last week, and picked out my three papers. I stitched around each of the quadrants, and then around all the panels. What fouled me up was that middle layer which I started to sponge, but then it made a big old mess. But, what really tripped me up was trying to work in that circular element. That button just doesn't feel like enough of an oomph for me.

Okay, enough of my yucky card, here's the cute cards that the girls sent me! Be sure to stop by their blogs today as they both are total superstars and each made two cards for the challenge so they're posting "extras" on their blogs today!
This next one is Nancy's and I'm think we both got our inspiration from last week's Mojo Monday challenge. However, Nancy CLEARLY pulled it off much better than I did!! I love the pop of pink all over the place. I always think that Nancy does a great job with all the little details that really pull a card together.

And this cute baby card is from Dawn. Its just so soft and lovely. In particular, I just love that she's picked two of the patterns in this series that till now has really make me scratch my head. This makes me want to dig mine out and see what I can do!

Here's your challenge for the month. If you've got Berry Bliss paper, pick three patterns and make a creation. If you don't have Berry Bliss, no worries, just get inspired by that paper collection and use whatever cardstock you have from that palette.

Remember, "What You've Got" is about using what you've already got in hand!

To enter, just post a comment on this thread with a link to your creation. And don't forget, if you post on Splitcoast, be sure to use the keyword "WYG" so we can see all the creations in one place! Personally, I'm going to challenge myself to try this one again! I've love to see what YOU come up with. You've got till June 1st to show me "What You've Got" and will pick one participant who will win the Stampin Up Classic Ink pad of their choice.
