The Pink Elephant and Caardvarks Challenges

Happy Sunday!!!!! Just a quick post today. The cards below I made for the challenges over at the Pink Elephant (sketch challenge) and Caardvarks (make a baby/bridal theme card/project) sites. I really enjoy their challenges and have missed playing along these past few weeks. So I thought I would sit down and make these cards....Enjoy!!! The stamped image is from Motivet Rubber Stamps...I just love all of their fun stamps that they offer and wanted to use this darling smiley little stamp to bring some sunshine on this dreary day here...Normally I don't use colors like these--so I am way out of my element---but she is just fun and I wanted to use some cheery bright colors. What do you think? Did I achieve it? The clear photo turns and snaps are from Tim Holtz' collection and the silver brads are from The Little Black Dress. I know the coloring is still off, but I'm still working on that... I used the Life is a Beach and Wedding Cricut carts for these cutouts. I also glued real sand onto cardstock, tore and then inked the edges. I have noticed there are more and more weddings happening at the beach than a traditional church wedding. This could be used for either a bridal party invite or even a wedding invite. Something simple but fun. Well I hope everyone has some sunshine going on in their part of the world today. It seems like we have been getting alot of rain here. Although we really do need it, I really need to get outside and finish my projects that I started for the "yearly birthday party" bash for our little one coming up in 2 weeks. So wish us luck....Hugs from Charm City
