Two Cards

Whew.  I've been having a little bit of a blogging marathon. :)  This is my third and final post for the evening and I've got two cards to share with you and then I'll be done for a bit! :)

Here's the first card~


For these fabulous challenges~

(My fave colors really are purple and yellow!)

I've used Stickles by Ranger, and all other supplies I used are by Stampin' Up!.  My purple looks a lot deeper than it really is.  I had a bit of trouble photo shopping this one!  I used watercoloring onto the paper for the flowers and leaves and then fussy cut them out before adding them to the splotchy background I created. :)

Now for card two~


For these fabulous challenges~

(I used heat embossing.)

I've used patterned paper by DCWV, ribbon from my stash, flower sequins from Paper Sweeties, a rhinestone heart from Studio 120, liquid pearls by Ranger, Medieval Metals embossing powder from Sweet Stamps, and all other supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

Well, that's all for me!  I hope you have a great rest of your day and that you have some time to join in these fun challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
