A Couple of Challenges

Hello friends!

Today I am popping in with two cards for some challenges. I have not been able to be crafty with cards but yesterday I was able to sit down and bang out some creations. It was so fun!!

My first card is for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #544. I used the Beautiful Blooms stamps, dies and stencils, mixed with some paper by 49 and Market-Spectrum Sherbet Tidal Wave and Sherbet Strawberry Lemonade. I ADORE pattern paper and it was so fun to use on a card.  

The background die is from Birch Press Design. Below is the sketch that I used:

The flower image was a  bit big for the card so I cut it down to fit where I needed it to go.

The inks are a combination of Simon Says Stamp and Pinkfresh Studio.

For my second card I used a color combination from the Color Hues Challenge.

I used my new Monthly Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Wood Anemone stamp that I received this week!!!

I did add a bit of yellow Nuvo Drops in the center. This is NOT an actual color of a Wood Anemone but I loved how this came out. I used ink from MFT and Tim Holtz Distress Ink to ink blend the colors.

I splattered some Pumice Stone and coral ink across the card front.

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