2 Great Color Combinations

Yeah, it's hump day!

I have 2 cards for you today. My first card was for the color challenge at Picture Perfect Creations. The colors were Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, and Very Vanilla.

These are great colors together and I think you will really like them on my card. I used the sketch from Tracy's Eat Sleep Stamp blog. For the small horizontal strip I used the Fine Flourish and did a second generation stamping then using the markers colored the image and stamped on the strip. The rest is just layering. Here is the sketch and my creation.

My next card used a color challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I combined it with the Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. I used markers to ink up the image. To create the circle element at the bottom I used a 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", and 1" circle punches and layered them. All I need to do was add the ribbon and I was done. Here is the sketch and my creation.
