Color, Color!

Two cards tonight for two color challenges and one CAS challenge.  First up is the card for Color Throwdown 95 and for the current CAS-tastic challenge (CWC006) to put the focus on your sentiment.

I die cut the white and turquoise cardstock using Spellbinder Labels 10 dies.  Stamped one of the images from the WaltzingMouse Stamps set Very Vintage Labels 10 in Memento Rosebud and then stamped the sentiment from CHF's Vintage Butterflies set in Memento Black.  Layer everything with some yummy green satin ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon store.

The second card is for ColourQ 35.  Another bright, fun combo from Arielle.  Arielle also challenge us to use a sketch provided by Mercy, MTSC76.   I used a brand new stamp set from The {Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Bernard, called Kites2Fly. 




Mercy's sketch was fun to work with for this color challenge, providing a great jumping off point. Thanks for taking a peek!  Have a great weekend!

Both are such lovely summer creations! Your CAS card with the color throwdown colors is striking in its simplicity! Using the kite in Mercy's sketch is a really cool idea!

I really like all the white you've used on both cards....very summery! And I really like how you used the ribbon on the first card. I think I need to remember to try that! :>

These are both very cute----and both challenges that I participate in! The ribbon on the CTD one is gorgeous, but that kite is just the cutest!
