5 for $5 !!

Hello Everyone!!

Happy Monday!!!
Today I sent quite a longtime in my craft room. I created a card set for 5 for $5 Challenge in the Moxie Fab World .
5 cards sound easy....but the trick is to make 5 different cards for just $5.
When it comes to creating in small budget I favorite choice of patterned paper is the  double sided Quadrant prints, you get 5 different prints for the price of one.
So here is what I used for this challenge.....

Here is the price break up ..
Echo Park Papers------------2 x $.79=$1.58
4-Cardstock------------------4 x $.20= $0.80
  Black pen-------------------------------$1.00
So the total comes to $4.38.

Now lets see the cards....

I did lot of fussy cutting! All the sentiment is from Border patterned paper.
The lil' extra thing I added is a bit of Diamond stickles.


This fun card is also for the following challenges...
4 Crafty Chicks: Flowers.
Pile It On : All about "S"..( Stripes, scallops, stickles, silver pearls, stitching(faux)).


I used the scorboard to make the faux dry embossed lines.

This Butterfly card is also for the following challenges...
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle : Things with wings.
Flutterby Wednesdays: Anything goes.
Crafting When We Can : Things with wings


This card is for the following challenges...
