Simple Cards

Hi Everyone! Hoping you are having a wonderful Mothers Day. I know I am. Happy Mothers Day to all of you. I have two cards to show you right now. They are both very simple with not alot of embellies. The first card was made using this weeks color challenge and sketch challenge over at SCS. CC217 which was to use Garden Green, Cameo Coral and Ballet Blue and here is SC227: Cameo Coral is just not one of my fav colors but I had some dp left over from the very first pack of paper I bought from SU. Ginger Blossom so it worked perfectly with this sketch. My image is from SU's Friends 24-7. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto PTI Cardstock and colored with my copics. My ballet blue panel was embossed with my Divine Swirls folder. Side border was punched using my fiskars Treading Water punch. My ribbon was colored with my copics to match. I learned this technique from Cindy Lawrence. Thanks Cindy!! Then my embellies are a simple green button and a white paper flower with a garden green brad. Simple today but I like the way it came out.

My next card was made for my 12 year old sons best friend. I needed a very simple but little bit more mature boy card. I used some new paper I got at Michaels from My Minds Eye 29th Street Market. I actually bought it to go with my cowgirl Sophia from Paper Pretties but it worked perfect for this card too. My sentiment is from Hero Arts and my stars are stamped in Choc Chip onto sage shadow cardstock and cut out and mounted with dimensional. The stars are from a set by Paper Makeup called Starstuck.

Thanks so much for coming by today to say hi!! I have so much fun reading the comments you leave. They totally make my day!! Have a great one!!
