Two Cards, Two Challenges... and a Sketch

Two cards today.... one for ColourQ and one for Color Throwdown. I think this is the first time I have done a post where I have two cards for two different challenges... not something I will be doing often.  I almost didn't make a card for ColourQ as I don't have the new SU! color Poppy Parade, but then I looked at Ruby Red which seems to be awefully close and decided to move forward.   Created by background using one of the line drawn stamps from the SU! Fifth Avenue Floral set, using black, Ruby Red and Capri Blue from Fresh Ink. 

The 2nd card is for Color Throwdown which I almost didn't do either, until I saw the current sketch from Clean & Simple.   I really like the bright colors that were picked for this week's Color Throwdown.  I used another SU! set Vintage Vogue.... stamping the large flower in each color, cutting them out and adhering to the card front.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts - Thinking of You..


Thanks for taking a peek.... enjoy your day!

Both cards are gorgeous but I especially like the second one. That's a very fresh, modern way of using Vintage Vogue.
