Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a couple of cards to share.  I finally had a chance to get crafty late this afternoon.  I am playing along with a few blog challenges.

For my first card I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and The ColourQ Color Challenge.  

I started with MFT smooth white, blu raspberry, limeade, and kraft card stocks.  I used Blueprints 22 to die cut the blu raspberry background.  I layered die cut stitched snowdrifts to look like waves of water.  I die cut the Sailboat die namics in a few colors and assembled to card with foam mounting tape and liquid glue.  I did stamp the limeade panel with the Simply Circles background in limeade ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Totally Happy stamp set in hybrid black licorice ink.  

For my second card I am playing along with Retro Sketch and The Color Throwdown.

I started with smooth white, black licorice, and daffodil card stocks.  I die cut the daffodil panel with inside and outside stitched squares.  I die cut another using black licorice then layered a stitched rounded rectangle and die cut that to create the sketch look.  I stamped the daffodil panel with houndstooth background stamp using daffodil ink.   With these colors, I thought it would be fun to create a chalkboard scene.  I stamped the images from Tweet On You stamp set with versamark and white embossed. I then sponged some sweet tooth pigment ink on the panel for added chalkboard effect.  I die cut a a sentiment panel from Blueprints 13 and stamped a sentiment from the same set.  I finished with a few clear sequins.   

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
