World Card Making Day Challenge

I made these two cards for the Hero Arts' World Card Making Day Challenge earlier this month. The challenge was to use your favorite colors, and blue and purple are two of my favorites.

For the first one, I used the Thank You Flourishes set. I stamped the flourishes in a lovely soft blue on a piece of card stock that I cut into four squares. Then, I matted with a blue card stock that matched the ink. It's a very simple design, but I really like how it turned out.

The second card is a purple winter card. The colors are a little different than on the picture, they are more alike than it looks like here. The background is made using the snow flakes from the Warmest Winter Wishes set. The Winter Wonderland stamp is by Inkadinkado and is put on the card with pop dots to create some dimension, with a strip of ribbon underneath.

My first baby card

I just want to share with you the first baby card I made. I've personalized the card by stamping the name of the baby inside the mobile. It was quite tricky to mask off the "it's a baby" that is originally there, but I got it after a few tries.
