Some more SSC challenge cards



This week over at Simply Scrapping Crafts the cards challenge was set by Dani...
to use these colours

Great basic colours.  
SSC Colour challenge
I did some masking of the Peeking Posies to remove the frame around the flowers and masked around the embossing as well.  I used Antique Linen to stamp the envelope pattern for some texture.  I coloured the flowers with water colour pencils.  

 Last week I didn't get around to sharing the card I made for the sketch challenge....
I decided to stick fair accurately to the sketch.  I had a friend in mind when I made this card...
SSC Sketch - May 11th

The yellow card is plain white that has been stamped with HA Envelope Pattern and then distressed with Scattered Straw Distress ink.  The striped paper was a free download from Papercraft Inspirations magazine  The flowers are punched from some handpainted papers made with Twinkling H2O's and Pearlescent paints.  I love how some cards just come together so well.... this was one of them.  I sent this off to Jacqueline to let her know I am thinking of her.  

 I hope you take the time to visit the challenges over that SSC... they are such fun... 

Hope the week's been good for you... still no light in my studio.... so not a lot has been done... but am looking forward to catching up with my stamping friends around at Sandie's on Saturday... got a few ideas to try out...

Love the bg on the posey card Dawn-it's so soft and weathered looking, very cool :) and your sketch card is gorgeous! Soft, soothing colors and beautiful touches with the lace and pearls- Jacqueline will adore this.
