Two Kits/Two Cards

I have two cards to share with you today.  First up is a card I created for Colour Me Challenge.  This one started as monochromatic, but I somehow ended up adding the strip of black pattern paper so it would match my puffy stickers. 

Sometimes when I create cards, I will just pull a kit from my stash, open it, and get busy.  I ended up pulling a Studio Calico kit for this one, and once open realized that aside from a piece of blue cardstock and that blue paper clip, there was there was no other blue in the kit.  But I gave myself a secondary challenge to use that kit, and conquered that with the stamp set.  

The second card is for Freshly Made Sketches where I used supplies from February's Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.  The sketch is posted down with the supply list for the card.

One of the things I love about the set that came with the kit is the image of the paper clip heart.  I used silver embossing powder and they just pop on this kraft cardstock. 

I hope you can fit a little creation time into your day today!
