A Day Late and a Dollar Short-Challenges

Today I am posting a couple cards that I created on Saturday for World Card Making Day. Once again I am late for getting them in on time but that is okay. For me, it is the fun of it, not for trying to win anything!!

My first card was for the ROYGBIV Challenge on My Favorite Things. 

I created a card using Oxide Distress Inks and die cuts. Love how it came out 

 I used my NBUS "Celebrate" die from MFT and layered it so it pops a bit above the card front. I also used my never used Tonic Aqua shimmer pen on the the black die cut and think I love it better then any sparkle pen I have used so far!!

My next card I created for a few challenges. The first was for Freshly Made Sketches #307. The sketch was the main driver for the challenge and then the colors were inspired by a photo from a private challenge I am involved in. 

The cool thing about this card was with the exception of the leaf die cuts, everything was on my desk and it came together quick!! 

Here is the sketch I used:

The leaf stamp is an old "Stamp in the Hand" stamp that I have. I covered it with Tombow markers, then misted the stamp and stamped it on white card stock. 

I used Lawn Fawn dies for the leaves and a Umbrella Crafts "Circle Dies" for the yellow circle. 

Well, that is all for me. I thank you for stopping by today. Have a fabulous night!!
