2 Fun Challenges

I got a couple of inspiring challenges in my email and simply had to play along!

Let's start with the Just Add Ink #615 - inspiration photo.  It so talked to me!

I love these colors together!  I used a water colored panel [from my stash] and cut out some of the fun leaves from the [retired] MFT Wild Leaf Greenery.  I don't have any vases, but I used some lantern dies that I have, and WHOA - perfect!  I couldn't of been happier with my "vases".

I used a Simon Says Sentiment Strip to finish off my card.



I went on to play in CAS on Sunday #237 - Enamel Dots. I went a searching -- I had a TON, and I do mean a TON, of sequins - very few enamel dots.  However, I found just enough to complete my card - so yay!

I used the Stamps of Life Happy Birthday Word Dies for layering, and added in the enamel dots.  It's a win for me having had the dots in orange since they went with the mix of colors on my card!

I'm loving this end result~

Thanks Challenges - I had a ton of fun 😀

Stunning cards Vicki! I especially love your take on our Just Add Ink inspiration. Those lanterns as pots are fabulous! Thanks for joining us this week.

Both cards are great but my favorite is the colorful birthday card!

A very clever idea to use the lanterns as vases with the fun leaves, and the colour blocked bacground creates a great effect. Fab interpretation of the challenge image. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink.

Two brilliant cards here Vicki! I just love the stripes on the top card with those multi-toned green plants! The birthday letters is so fun and cheerful!
