Springtime Birthday & Wintertime Greetings

 2 cards...

5 challenges inspired today's 1st card...

Less Is More // #LIM483 ...A theme challenge!! SPRING!  Blooming flowers is what spring time looks like here.  I love seeing beautiful blooms pop out and smelling the sweet fragrance they give.

Global Design Project // #GDP395 ...A theme challenge!!  BIRTHDAY!  When both your mother and your mother-in-law have spring birthdays and they both love make floral birthday cards!!

Addicted to Stamps & More // #446 ...A "make your mark" challenge!! I made my mark with water color pencils and an aqua-painter...oh and of course a standard ink pad too!!

Retro Rubber Challenge // #rrcb207 ...An "anything goes" challenge!! have to use a stamp that is over a year old.  This floral stamp is from Stampin Up's Butterfly Basics that came out in oldie but a goodie!!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC526 ...A sketch challenge!!  Another fun sketch...and this one works great for creating a CAS card.  

Card #2 inspired by 1 challenge...

Jingle Belles // #JB2311 ...A Christmas challenge!!  For this current Christmas card challenge we are to create a card with "no stamping"!!  Instead of stamps I used die cuts, sponging, and a sticker sentiment.  My die cut Christmas tree is layered and I used the negative space from the top layer as a stencil for sponging my additional background trees.  Way to go up-cycling my scraps!!

  4. I Love softness of the colour behind the flowers, subtle but impactful and let the flowers shine! Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC).
