It's A 2 Card Saturday!!

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

Global Design Project // #GDP429 ...A color challenge!!  Lost Lagoon, Poppy Parade, and Grey Granite are the colors called for in this challenge!!  I use Lost Lagoon ink & bakers twine, Poppy Parade ink, and Grey Granite card stock & designer papers for creating my beach birthday card.

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge // #SC994 ...A sketch challenge!!  I love the layers called for in the sketch...perfect for playing with different designer papers in the same color.

Make My Monday Challenge // #MMM217 ...A theme challenge!!  Happy Birthday!!  We all need birthday cards, so this theme is great for adding cards to our stash.  But this one wont be added to my stash, it was made for my son-in-law who has a birthday coming up.

Just Us Girls Challenge // #JUG711 ...A technique challenge!!  Use a stencil to create your card.  This sun-ray & surf stencil has become one of my know I love all things beachy!!

Card #2 was inspired by 3 challenges...

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI586 ...A cupcake inspired challenge!!  The cupcakes chosen for this challenge are all about fairytales.  I right away thought of this retired frog set from Stampin Up...a frog and a crown...perfect fairytale pair!!

Addicted to Stamps & More // #460 ...A technique challenge!!  Die-cuts are called for in this current challenge!!  I used a crown die, a lilypad die, a water lily die, and a frog die!!  And actually card #1 uses both a stencil and a it counts too!!

Color Hues // #TCH79 ...A color challenge!!  Copper and Green are the colors called for in this current challenge.  I use some metallic card stock for my water lillies, and copper embossing powder and ink for the crown.  I got my green covered in two shades of for the lily pad and one for the frog.
