Farm Fresh Friday Bejeweled and Bedazzled

Yay! It is Friday! I'm sooo looking forward to the weekend. Even though I just had a long weekend with the Memorial Day holiday, it was just so jam packed that I'm ready for a relaxing weekend.

This week's challenge at The Greeting Farm Blog is to create a card or project based on your favorite piece of jewelry, maybe a fun Etsy shoppe piece, your birthstone, whatever! There is soo much cool stuff over at etsy. I decided to do two cards. I used a necklace from RachelleD and another from sabineajewelry. Aren't they awesome? Since I didn't really want to bling a boy card too much I opted for a button.

My first card uses Fleur Anya along with Anya Says and my second card uses Dylan from the HUGE Roll Call set. Both images are colored with copics. The second card also uses a sketch from Papercrafts Go-to Sketches. I believe the papers on the first card are from Stampin' Up and the papers on the second card are from Queen & Co.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Please visit the rest of the DT for their awesome jewelry inspired projects.

Oh my goodness, he looks just like a boy I went to high school with - dark complected with the blondest afro. heehee! Wonderful job on both cards Mary! I love the paper on Fleur Anya, now I am on a hunt to find it. ;) Enjoy your weekend my friend, I hope it goes by nice and sloooooow.

MARY! You've gone above and beyond, by making two cards! These are so fanastic. I especially LOVE that you've used a piece of jewelry to inspire a boy card!! And executed it brilliantly!! I'll never stop complimenting your amazing eye for picking papers and matching colors! AWESOME
