2 Cards On This Hump Day


Card #1 inspired by 3 challenges...

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS415 ...A color challenge!!  The color combination for this challenge is Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron, Mango Melody, and Petal Pink.  A great combination for a summery field of flowers.

Atlantic Hearts Challenge // #AHSC528 ...A sketch challenge!!  I flipped the sketch so that I could use all of this floral die behind my mushroom dies.

INKspirational Challenge // #291 ...A theme challenge!!  For this challenge we were suppose to pick one of the four seasons and then make a card that represents that season.  I picked summer...the color combo for the HSS challenge had me thinking about a field of summery flowers.

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Color Hues // #TCH65 ...A color challenge!!  The duo of colors for this challenge is Aqua & Red.  I used Stampin Up's Poppy Parade & Tempting Turquoise.

Just Add Ink // #JAI655 ...An add on challenge!!  Just add music!!  I added music to my card with a music note bard and a sheet out of an old hymn book that I keep of my shelf for cards.  I picked this hymnal up at a yard sale and have made lots of cards using it's pages.

The Paper Players // #PP643 ...A theme challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is IT'S A MAN'S WORLD.  My man is a music lover and when he is going be gone for a week I need a card to hide away in this suitcase!!
