I hope everyone has had a good day! I know I have. Busy but good. It was a little dreary weather wise with nothing other than clouds and rain but I was still able to get some things accomplished. It feels good to check some things off my list. Tomorrow there is sunshine and warmer temps forecasted here. lol!

Today I would like to share two cards that I have made for different challenges. The first card I made for this weeks' Mojo Monday 79 Sketch Challenge, LSC212 (limited supply challenge to use soft subtles and a flower) and the CC211 (color challenge to use Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink, and Kiwi Kiss) Challenge. The stamp I used for this card is entitled God's Beauty (a hostess set from ODBD) . The butterfly is stamped with Stazon Brown and watercolored using SU Markers. All the images were cut out (TLC207) and popped on dimensionals on an embossed white background. The yummy DP is from K&Co. and SU Parisian Breeze. I used an EK Success punch for the border at the bottom. As a final touch, the card was sewn in white thread and pearls, pink velvet ribbon and flourishes were added (Bosscut flourish). I think it looks very springy! I must say that Baja Breeze is one of my very favorite colors!

The second card I made for this week's OCCC sketch challenge hosted by Kim T, the LSC212 sketch, BVC09 Divine challenge, and the Inpiration Challenge 172. I used one my very favorite Dp from SU called {Parisian Breeze). The stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 1 and Sing to the Lord. Again I used my EK Success Border punch and corner punch. I loved how they coordinated so nicely. The verse and flowers were stamped in Stazon Brown and the flowers were watercolored and cut out. I love this yummy ribbon that I received from The Little Ribbon Shop. The silver butterfly and pearls were my final touch.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I so appreciate your comments. Have a great night!!

Two more amazingly beautiful creations!!! The soft blues and pinks on your first card are just amazing and I love the filligree that you added! The flowers and butterfly though are amazing! It almost looks lifelike! And your second card is in one of my favorite color combos, blue and brown! So rich and elegant! I love the beautiful sentiment you used and the gorgeous border punch! But the ribbon with the charm in the middle is amazing! A true work of art1

Chris! Are these ever gorgeous. The first one is so elegant. The use of the dark color with the baja breeze on the 2d one makes it a little more somber but beautiful too! Totally, totally awesome!

I love all the elegance you add to your cards. I must have lived in the Victorian age in another life as I love pearls, lace, elegance. Can ya tell? LOL? Of course, I still like my bling but that's the New Yorker in me! Another LOL!
