Some challenge cards

Maybe you have noticed all the posting I've been doing lately...I'm trying to do more challenges. I figured I should probably group them. 

This card is for the current Embellish challenge to use light aqua, light pink, kraft and use stitching.  I originally did not intend to make a baby card, but the colors were so soft and pretty that I immediately went the baby route. I used Papertrey Ink's Baby Button Bits, Life and Tin Type background sets. I stamped the image from Life in Versarmark and embossed with clear embossing powder.


This next card is for the Saturday sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet.  I really love this sketch and am happy with how this card turned out.  I used some new Papertrey Ink stuff...Green boutique pattern paper, Hawaiian Shores cardstock.  Ribbon is PTI's New Leaf bitty dot ribbon.

Well, that's all I've got for now. I'll be back tomorrow with a new Sketch Girl challenge and a new template from Perfect Presentation! Have a great Monday!

  18. The top card with Life is just blowing me away! Image that, I'm loving a card where you used the Life set ;) Those colors are so very pretty together for a baby card. And the tin type background set is moving its way up my list of needs, thanks to you!

    I especially love the balloons card though...it just jumps off the page! I think it's super cool too that when I opened Debbie Olson's post this morning I thought, "Hmmm...she CASEd Anna Banana!"
