Few Card Challenges

Hi All!! So this past weekend was a long one in Canada...Victoria Day.  And like every other year, the weather was absolutely miserable.  Wind, rain, freezing rain and snow.  So needless to say, I spent my time indoors, in my craft room!!  No complaints about that!!!

I made a few cards just for fun and a few cards for some challenges.  Here are my "for fun" cards:
SSS Partial Cut Flowers and Derwent Inktense pencils.
Waffle Flower Circle Doily Die. LOVE this die!!
Technique Tuesday Chickadees and watercolour.
Now on to my challenge entries.  The first card I entered in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr
The challenge was to create your own background.  So I whipped out the Lots of Dots stamp set and this is what happened!
I used pale shades of inks, Memento Angel Pink, Desert Sand and Rose Bud and Stampin Up ink in Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe.  The Sentiment is from the SimonSaysStamp Wishing and Sending stamp set.  I finished it off with some twine and a die cut heart from cardstock coloured with the Rose Bud ink. I was trying for a "confetti" look rather than a Bokeh look.  Either way, I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out.
This card is for the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #14.   I chose the Sketch.  I used the Thanks a Latte stamp and die set, the 3X4 library card with the coordinating stamp from the Overdue Library Card stamp set. The two diagonal strips are patterned paper that had a scalloped print and I just fussy cut the edge.  Finished off with some coffee coloured sequins.
I should mention that all the kraft cardstock I use is Neenah Desert Storm 80lb.

Hope you enjoyed!  Until next time!!
