It's my Friday!

Yes, I know it's Thursday.  But it was my Friday at work as my DH and I are off tomorrow morning for the weekend! :)  That said, if I owe you comments, please forgive me as I'm trying to catch up from a week of illness and an ice storm...plus other life related stresses.  I will try and pay you a visit early next week! :)

Okay, so I've got two cards to share with you today.  They first uses pastel colors and springtime images...the second uses bold colors and a WAY more CAS design...take a look:

Here's the first~

For these fabulous challenges~




This card uses a beautiful sentiment and silhouette stamp by Great Impressions.  I also used bubble wrap to create my polka dot background after blending the inks with a blending tool by Ranger. Liquid pearls in a light purple shade were added along with small sticky back pearls by Stampin' Up!.  All other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Here's the second card~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~




All supplies used on this card are by Stampin' Up!.  The square stamp is from a seriously old set that is retired and I don't even know the name of it.  I popped the butterflies up for some dimension and added interest since this is so CAS.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I really appreciate each and every one of your sweet comments!  I hope that you see something you like and that you join in these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

2 such beautiful, yet very different cards! I LOVE the one with the butterflies - CAS perfection! I love the silhouette look created by the black butterflies. Your first one has such gorgeous colors and I like how you made the background for your image!
