Happy Saturday :)

I made a couple challenge cards today, and first up is the Just Us Girls #16 challenge. This week Kristin challenged us to create something with Burgundy, Blush, Vanilla, and Gray. I used the Fifth Avenue Florals set, stamping the images with Versamark and embossing with Claret ep and cutting them out. I used 2 different die cuts and embossing folders for the mats and crimped some leaves out of silver metallic cardstock. I added some MS silver microbeads to the stamens of the flowers.

This card is a double challenge card following the Crazy4Challenges#20 which is a sketch this week. It's also for the OCC challenge which is to use the colors of blue and green. My friend Michelle sent me this adorable stamped image a while ago and I pulled it out and colored it with Tombows for this card. I added some glaze with pens, and some dazzling diamonds on the frosting. The sentiment was made with a Just-Rite set, embossed with silver ep and I added some Geo sparklers tiny stars. I used scraps of green and blue for this one.
I hope everyone is having a pleasant weekend so far. Take care and make it a great one!
