A Couple of Challenge Cards

Hello everyone!! Just popping in to post a couple of challenge cards I created this afternoon. It is the second weekend in a row that I have not only had time but ideas for some of the challenges.

My first card I created for Freshly Made Sketches #377 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes.

 I started off by literally flicking on three colors of mist on a white, top folding, A2 card front. Then I added an orange circle and a peachy colored square, mimicking the placement from the sketch below.
Then I added some orange roses and some greenery, which are from Altenew's "Vintage Rose" stamp set. Last week I had stamped a BUNCH of these roses in three different colors and put them aside to use on future cards.

My last step was to add some orange confetti randomly around the flowers.

Where did the orange come in from then? It was from a photo from Pinterest that was a challenge on a private FB page I belong to.

My second card I created is for CASE this Sketch #311.

I used a stamp by Gorjuss which I have had FOREVER!! I used Copic markers to color it in and then used a get well sentiment from WPlus9's "Get Well Gang"stamp set on the the bag label.

I die cut the little girl using an MFT die and popped the middle up using foam.

This is a pretty simple design but I really wanted to emphasize the image rather then use any pattern papers. I added several moonstone confetti sequins around the image for a little bling.

Well, that is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS night!!
