Four Challenges, Two Cards



Inspiration Photo

Happy Friday! Tonight I made 2 cards for 4 different challenges, I had a busy week with not much crafty time and I had to get some cards made tonight.  I would love to make a few more but I am having a difficult time keeping my eyes open so this will be a short post.  My first card is for this week's Muse challenge, this is my second time playing and it is so much fun to take one person's idea and put your own spin on it. Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea made a card for this challenge too and I loved that she used her crackle stamp so I had to pull mine out too, it was so happy to finally see some ink.

  2. I was just the same this week, Kim, not too much crafty time! Oh my, at that time of night you got sooo creative?? The colour balance on your circle card is just wonderful and the sparkly borders really draw the eye to the sentiment. Splendid take on the Muse card, the crackle is perfect with the posie ... I love that you used red for the sentiment to complement the flowers! Anita :)

  4. You nailed both of these - Great colours and I love the 'crackle' on the Muse card. The glitter and that lime green make your circle card really stand out! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  10. I see what I miss by going to bed early! These two cards are just stunning. First--I love that crackle in green--it's so pretty. And, it is wonderful to see you using those rosie posie flowers--I think you are fully converted to loving flower sets now. And, that sentiment from the new birthday set--just perfect. Your circle card is just fabulous. I love the idea of those circles just tumbling around, contained by that pretty glitter.
