Two more cards...

A quick post with a couple more cards I've created in the past little bit!  This post will be long enough with pictures, etc., so I won't blabber on...

Card 1~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~

(Week 1: Pink, Black, & White; 
Week 42: Silhouette;  
Week 43: Bit of Bling)



This card utilizes different dry embossed pattern to create more interest than just the flat colors.  The bling and ribbon were the only embellishments I felt were needed and appropriate.  The lack of sentiment will come in handy--I just know it!

Card 2~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~




This card took quite a bit of time for me to create.  I had to find some patterned paper that I liked to fit the colors as I wanted to stamp onto patterned paper! ;)  The faux stitching is really what slowed me down.  I've done quite a bit of it the past week and am still trying to get faster! 

Thanks for stopping by to see my cards--I appreciate you taking time out of your day to say hi and to leave your sweet comments!  Please join in the fabulous challenges I've played along with--I'd love to see what you create!!!  Happy stamping! :)

WOW! These are both beautiful cards but I love the black/white/pink one. The black card base makes a statement whilst the delicate stamps add a touch of serinity. Love the touch of gingham ribbon too.

Love Sheila x

Mynnette, both of these cards are simply GORGEOUS! I love the color combo of the first one...and the bling on the image really pops (great design too!) The second card is a perfect combination of colors for the sentiment (I need that one!). The colors just are soft and soothing...does that make sense? Anyway...AWESOME cards this week!
