2 Challenge Cards!!

Hi everyone!! I have 2 challenge cards to share today!! My first card is for the featured stamper on Splitcoast. Annascreations is the featured stamper this week and I chose this card to case. I loved the layout, though it wasn't easy to choose, she has a beautiful gallery!! I decided to use my new stamps from Treehouse, Bag of Sugar and the sentiment Sweet as Sugar. I think they are such fun images!!!! I colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and Blending stumps. Initially I was going to use Kraft cardstock but I still had this Basic Grey paper sitting out from yesterday, and had put the image on top of it, just to keep it out of the way while cutting, etc and I thought the colors were so good together!! The image was cut using my rectangle Nestabilites and attached to a layer of Dark Chocolate. The Basic Grey paper is also attached to a layer of Dark Chocolate. I ran the sentiment layer through my Cuttlebug using my square Nestabilites. The ribbon is Dark Chocolate twill from Papertrey. The base card is Dark Chocolate and the layer above is Blush Blossom. I added my Espresso baubles at the bottom rather than on the dp like Anna did.

My next card is a double challenge card. For the High Hopes challenge this week it was to use flowers. And for the Paper Craft Planet day 10 challenge, it was to use a boy. I thought of this image from High Hopes, Sundays Best. The image qualifies for both challenges!!! I colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps. On the flowers I added Flower Soft, LOVE this stuff!!! The middle of the flowers is black, the leaves are pale green and the flowers are ivory. I cut the image out using my rectangle Nestabilites and the image is on a layer of Dark Chocolate using my rectangle scallop Nestabilites. I ran a piece of Handsome Hunter through my Cuttlebug using my Stylized Flower embossing folder. This fun ribbon is from May Arts, love this ribbon!!! The base card is Dark Chocolate.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! Hope you have a great rest of the weekend!!!
