 I've got two cards to share today! I feel like I've been extra crafty the past few days!!! I've decorated some wooden letters for a friend who is leaving, painted my plaster Halloween house from Michaels and have made a few cards.  Phew, wish I was this motivated more often! 

This first card is based of the Freshly Made Sketch 

I flipped it for a vertical card. The pattern paper was a scrap on my desk so I just used it as my color scheme. The cardstock and stamp are from Recollections and stamped in VersaFine. The pattern paper is from Stampin' Up. Added some black embellishments and sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight (Stampin' Up) to give them some definition.
I will also add this card to Simon Says StampWednesday challenge.

Now on to card number two. This card will be added to the Simon says stamp Monday challenge. The challenge was go bold! So with that in mind I used a recently purchased stencil that I think is very pretty! Used some bright gold Modeling Cream and it turned out to like a little yellow with the flash, but I thought the two items combined made for a bold background.  Usually I don't use gold(I prefer silver any day) and boy is this a vivid gold! I didn't want to cover to much up so I went with black embossing a larger sentiment on vellum and called it a day.

Recollections- cardstock and embossing powder
Viva- modeling cream
Hero Arts- stencil and sentiment

Etc.- VersaMark ink and Queen & Co bling

 As always thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
