Another couple of cards...

Two more quick ones for you tonight.  Both very different in their styles, but similar in the bold and bright colors. :)

Here's the first one~

Details~






This is another card made with my brand spankin' new, from Great Britain, GORGEOUS Everything Eleanor set from Stampin' Up!  It's for the One Layer Wednesday Women Rule! challenge and the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Green Thumb challenge. :)  It's also for "Spread the L-O-V-E".  It's a birthday card for a friend who's celebration is tomorrow and that I haven't seen in awhile.  I'll be popping by tomorrow night with a treat for her! :)

Here's the second card~

Details~



This one was a bit harder to make.  It's only the second circular card I've made, so it was kinda slow going.  I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities die to create the circle card base and then added some Stampin' Up! patterned paper I forgot I had as well as a darling image from Stampin' Up! that I forgot I had and a sentiment from Kaiser craft.  Rhinestones and glitter and ribbon finished it off. :)  This one's for the Mojo Monday sketch, the Creative Belli Animals challenge, the Color Throwdown Color Inspiration challenge, and the Stamptacular Sunday Spring Bling! challenge. :)



Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you can play along and that I've inspired you to craft and create today!  Happy stamping, friends!!! :)  PS: How do you like my attempt at photo placement today?  Is it working, or not so much?

I don't know how you do it but time after time you come up with the most beautiful and amazing cards. I adore your unique style . The first with those fantastic silhouettes and then the explosion of colour and the second with those wonderful shades of green and that cute frog. Love them both.
