Two cards...and a query.

Yes.  I have a query.  A question.  It is so very thought provoking.  Okay, not REALLY, I just want to know if you have heard of Technique Tuesday?  If not, I'd be honored to tell you about it!  Technique Tuesday is a new thing I'm doing each month here at On a Stampage.  It's a link party that may eventually have prizes in conjunction with it...just saying!  If you'd like to join me, click here for even more info on this month's technique!!!



And now, onto the two cards I have to show you today!!!  Both are CAS in nature, but one more so than the other.  I'm not sure which I like better, but both use beautifully soft spring colors and are very seasonally appropriate...for the northern hemisphere, that it. ;)

So here's the first one~

Details~



This one is the one I'm truly torn on.  I don't know if my peach color is too light, but the other peach I own looks way to orange to go with these other pastel shades.  I do like the polka dots and the pearls together, though.  I try to keep a sort of theme going on my cards sometimes... ;)  What do YOU think?
 
This card is for the following challenges~



CAS-ual Fridays: Name That Tune (my song is Hello Goodbye by the Beatles)

Here's the second card~

Details~



This one is more to my CAS style liking.  More white space, white one white, and my favorite glitter gel pen for highlighting portions of the image.  What do YOU think?

This cards is for~



Well, thanks so much for stopping in and looking at my cards!  Your sweet comments ALWAYS make my day--I get a bit sad when I don't have one!  I hope you play along with this month's Technique Tuesday and the other fabulous challenges I've mentioned--I LOVE seeing what everyone creates!  Happy stamping! :)
