Paper Craft Crew Challenge #300 and Color Throwdown #503

Happy Friday!! Is everyone gearing up for the weekend? We are going to some soccer games with family on Sunday. My husband has not been feeling to well this week and keeping me up coughing so I hope I will be able to stay awake!!! (I can sleep anywhere!!)

Today I am posting two cards that I created using scraps and the mess on my desk. Both are thank you cards and I used the sketch from the Paper Craft Crew as a jumping off point.

For my first card, I used die cuts from MFT and Paper Smooches for the flowers and the leaves.

I clustered them together and added some Nuvo Crystal drops in "Caribbean Ocean" to give the card a bit of dimension. I left this kind of flat because I will be sending this out to someone.

Here is the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #300 that was my inspiration:

Isn't it fabulous? I could make about 20 cards with the flower die cuts I have!!

For my second card, I was inspired by the sketch and the colors from the Color Throwdown Blog #503.

I did add some black into the mix, though so not sure if it will be accepted.

I actually like this card better then the first. I used a score board to emboss the front to give it a bit more oomph.

I also like the black and white paper on the edge. This I pulled from my ever growing scrap drawer.

I did add another banner in patterned paper on both cards that the sketch doesn't have. I just thought it looked a bit better with my design.

That is all from me today. Thank you for looking!!!
