Birthday Challenge

Good morning!

I am having so much fun entering challenges at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog.  The challenge this week is to make a birthday card.  Here are the two I made. I hope you (and they) like them.

For the first card I masked off a piece of white cardstock and sponged ink on the right hand side. Then I used a script stamp and stamped over the sponged ink. I wasn't careful and didn't care if the script stamp was perfect or not, but it gives the look two layers, a white one that's stamped over a tan one with script. The other stamps were stamped on the white cardstock and colored with copic and spectrum noir markers. The flower, sentiment and butterfly are Gina K. Design stamps, the flourish is Cherry Pie Art Stamps, and the script is unknown.

For the second card I made a latch card, which was just featured on Splitcoast Stampers yesterday.  It was fun to make, and in retrospect I would put a butterfly where the latch flower is, but since this was my first attempt, I'm happy.  The flowers and sentiment are from Gina K. Designs.  

Hope you like my entries.

Very pretty cards. Great masking and composition. Love the soft lavendar and green colors too. Thanks for taking the challenge with us at the <a href="”>Mod Squad Challenge</a>

How pretty, Becky! Both are gorgeous, but I especially LOVE the first card - such pretty soft colors perfect for showcasing nature! Those flourish leaves look great with your 2nd card, especially with the tiny little beads. I'm sorry about not visiting as often as I'd like these days. Thanks for understanding. hugs, de
