Two Challenges, Two Cards!

Good Morning Everyone!

I have been up since around 5:00 am. DH left very early for work this morning and I had use the little girl's room; and I am the type of person that once my feet hit the ground in the morning, that's it I'm up! So, what to do?? Mmmm... stamp of course!!
I actually have two cards for you. The first one is for yesterday's SCS color challenge of Bravo Burgundy, Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss. I liked this combination, although next time, I think I might try it with Groovy Guava, instead of the Regal Rose. I know that's a retired color; but hey, if you got it, use it; right? I also used my new "Paper Pretties" Stamp of the Month. This time, I stamped it on watercolor paper, and it worked so much better when I colored it in. The card is pretty simple, so I won't bore you with all the details.
The second card, I did this morning is for today's SCS sketch challenge. I used Green Galore, Glorious Green, Tempting Turquoise, and Yo-Yo Yellow. I don't think I've ever made an entire card from one color family before! I stamped the yellow piece with the background stamp from "Fresh Cuts" and adhered that to the Glorious Green. I stamped the petals from "Pick a Petal" in Teal marker and Glorious Green marker and then colored them in with markers. I added the little stars and dots by free hand. The sentiment is from the "Best Yet" hostess set from the old fall winter catalog.
That's it for me today. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
