Some Challenge Cards

Happy Monday, or Happy Memorial Day as it is in the U.S.

This weekend has been SO NICE!! It was perfect weather and really relaxing. After a rough week, this was needed.

Today I am posting a couple cards that I created for some challenges. One I meant to post yesterday but just didn't feel like being on the computer since it was so nice out.

I created my first card using this past weeks Freshly Made Sketches #389 and Fab Friday's #164 Color Challenge as my inspiration.
I used my Stampin Up!'s "Dear Doily" stamp set and matching die set for this card. I did not have Pear Pizazz and Flirty Flamingo ink so I used pink markers. Now that I look at it, the Flirty Flamingo is more coral and mine is more pink. I am going to enter it anyway!!

I have not used rubber for a long time and I forgot how fun it is to color!!

The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink and stamped with Soft Sea foam.

My second card, I used CASE this Sketch #323, Water-cooler Wednesday Challenge #222 and Seize the Birthday as inspiration for a belated birthday card.


I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp that I used Distress Ink on in three different purples.

I staggered the balloons on the right side in place of the diamonds on the sketch. I did some masking with the stamped sentiment, which is from Paper Trey Ink.

The die cut "birthday" is from Mama Elephant. I used some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer and Glossy Accents over the top of the black die cut.

I love how this came out. I should have made several of these as I am AWFUL at sending out cards on time!!

So that is all from me today. Tomorrow I will be back with some graduation cards I created for some family members.

I thank you for stopping by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
