MMSC Cards

Hi Everyone!

Here are my two cards to share with you today. The first one here is for last week's MMSC card. I must have scanned it a bit crooked, because I don't remember it being that crooked when I got done making it. Yesterday I shared a baby girl card and today I have one more for a boy baby. I know lots of people having babies, which is fine...as long as it's not me!! Anyhow, since this was last week's and it's pretty straightforward, I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the details. I couldn't make the angled element at the bottom of the sketch work for me, so I just left it out.
The other card I have is for today's MMSC challenge. The color palette for this card came from a previous KWerner Color Inspiration challenge a while back that I had not participated in. I used Pumpkin Pie for the card base and then added a layer of Ballet Blue which I stamped with the Floral background stamp from SU in Ballet Blue ink for a tone on tone look. Next I added the two triangles in each corner, using Real Red and So Saffron. I cut a circle with my scallop circle nestabilities in Certainly Celery and then another scallop circle in So Saffron. I stamped the flower from "Fifth Ave Floral" in Red ink on white paper and cut it out. I colored it in using Watercolor pencils and blender pens. To accentuate the detail of the flower I went over the lines of the flower with a Bravo Burgundy marker. I added the prima flowers in the corners, and then the eyelets on the rim of the Celery piece. The sentiment at the bottom is from SU's "Sweet little Sentiments" and I used Real Red ink.
Have a great day everyone!!
