Hey, y'all. I continue to be somewhat lacking in the card-making mojo but on the plus side, I *did* make some progress on my purple-licious scrapbook pages yesterday. But you won't get to see those for a little bit so here's a card for today:
I think this one worked out a little better in my head than it did on paper. I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
And the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge to use flowers:
I even used the same palette of colors as in this inspiration picture for my card. As an extra bonus, this one dovetails nicely with the SUO Challenges' Delight in Nature challenge.
Just wasn't thrilled with the first card so I made this one:
It was *supposed* to be a one-layer card, but I got some fuzz on the sentiment stamp the first time I stamped it, so I had to cover it up. The hazards of living with two dogs, especially one who is extra-super-ridiculously fluffy. Anyway, this one also fits in the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge:
The piercing template and the oval Framelits I used on these cards are both retired now, but I don't have the new Layering Ovals Framelits yet and no sense not using perfectly good craft supplies.
Well, I'm off to run some errands. See you back here tomorrow for the Friday Flashback!
