Cards for the Outlawz Challenges

I had some time to play today and made 2 cards for challenges over on the Outlawz. First up is the Copic/Promarker challenge from June 3rd found here. The challenge this week is to use the colors of pink & green. The image & sentiment are by MFT called Pure Innocence and the DP's are by Echo Park, BG and DCWV. The cardstock is SU's retired Green Galore. The Copics I used for this are Boo,B0000,B04,YG17,YG13,YG11,RV25,RV23,RV21,E000,E0000,E35,E37,E55,E57,R20,R0000.
This is for the Outlawz C&S challenge from June 5th found here. There are 3 groups of elements to select from, and I chose the color combination of Brown, Kraft & Turquoise, along with paper piercing and a button. I made the button from Chocolate Chip cardstock and covered it with Glossy Accents. To finish it off, I punched holes with my Crop-o-dile and wove some small strips of kraft card stock through the holes. Sentiment is by SU! and the scalloped border was done with a SU! border punch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

What a darling girl with her umbrella. You colored it so pretty and I LOVE those stripes..caught my eye immediately.

Your other card is sooooo pretty with that color combo and gorgeous flower.

They're both super creations, Carol.

Carol, I love both of these cards. I can't believe you made that button. It looks so much like a real button. The color of the flower is gorgeous. Simple and beautiful card. Your coloring on the first card is outstanding, as usual and great papers. Have a great day.

That first one is so sweet---I always tell my DH when we have a problem, "Just tell me everything it going to be okay!" I love it! The second one is lovely too--it qualifies for my Paper Players challenge this week, to make a thank you card!
