First up is a card for Color Throwdown. Love these colors together. Here is my card . . .
I used pattern papers and embellishments from Studio Calico. They came right to mind when I saw the inspiration photo. I do love that button in the center of the stamped image.
Second is a card created for Time Out's challenge which had an inspirational quote:
"Friends are connected heart to heart,
distance and time can't break them apart."
I immediately thought of our ability to send mail to our distant friends, and I used the little heart sequins to show the "heart to heart" love contained in the little envelope. I stamped this card on Desert Storm cardstock, which was different than the norm for me, but I love how it turned out.
I'm hoping to find even more time to create tomorrow. And I hope you do as well.
