Color Throwdown and Time Out

Two more cards to share, inspired by a few challenges. 

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.
