Two for the price of one!

Well, I didn't have time to post a card last night (still too poorly) so to make up for it today, here are two cards. Our fantastic Jo at the Colour Create Challenge has given us the most wonderful colour combination to work with.

Soft Pink, Soft Blue, White and Silver.


The cards made by the rest of the uber talented DT are wonderful. Take a look here!

I know the blue is a little strong on this first card but as soon as I saw what the colours were for this week, I knew I just had to use this image. It's adorable! I think I was a little rough with the distress ink on the sky but all in all I'm pleased with this card. I left it without a sentiment because I'm not sure if it'll be used for an engagement, anniversary or valentines card. I'm just keeping the options open. :o)

My second card uses one of the images from the sponsor of this week's challenge ( When I saw this one I just knew it had to be a kissy, kissy, pucker up....MWAH! card.

I've used the layout from Sketch Saturday for this card - just rotated it by 90 degrees.

So I'm entering it into that challenge.

Thanks for looking.
