Hope You Can Cling To challenge #31

HYCCT1331A - I *HEART* You

This is the first of three challenges today and since it has been a month of "heartfelt" love and support, I thought it would be fitting to have a challenge to create a heart shaped card or a card that contains hearts.

There are many ways to create a "shaped card", and you may have your favorite method, but if you need a little guidance, you can check out this tutorial from Beate. Beate demonstrates how easy it is to create a shaped card using dies.

I used a Stamps of Life flip it framelit card and Stamps of Life stamp set {hearts2diefor} and [hearts2love}.  

This is the "inside" of the card:
HYCCT1331B - Group Hug
Welcome to the 2nd of 3 Challenges on the last day of our 4th Annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge and card drive! You have been creative and supportive and impressive... keep them coming!

Sometimes messages are sent from or to groups of people, messages of thanks, messages of encouragement, messages of hope... sometimes it is great to feel the arms of many at one time... your challenge is to create a card that is simple in nature, and large in its message. Use sentiments or images that reflect a message from or to a group of people, and allow the patient to send or receive a Group Hug.
I used the Stamps of Life {moreowls2love} for my group hug.  I used an embossing folder an ran it through the Big Shot.
HYCCT1331C - Team 
Challenge:  What I want you to do is create a black and white card, with just a pop of one of the colors listed below - indicating your "team." you do not have to know anything about the show or these characters to play - you just have to pick one of these six colors for your pop.
1) Green (Team Walt)
2) Purple (Team Marie)
3) Brown (Team Hank)
4) Pink (Team Holly)
5) Blue - (Team Skyler)
6) Yellow - (Team Jesse)
Well, I'm not familiar with the Breaking Bad TV show that this challenge was inspired by.  But, after I'm reading this again to post, I didn't do the challenge completely correct. I selected a team and made my card that color.
I used patterned paper, cut into 1-1/4" strips and punched out the butterflys.    I saw something similar on either Pinterest or someone's website, but I could not locate it again prior to making my card.
