CARD: Bright Circles!

Wow!  When I saw the new challenge on the Color Hues blog, I was excited--they are right up my alley, as I LOVE bright colors!!  Red and Orange are so fun together--bright and cheerful!  Perfect for a birthday card!


I used the Circle Celebrations and Sweet Ice Cream sets that I used on yesterday's card, but this card has a totally different feel, don't you think?  I added rhinestones--please try to ignore that they aren't straight!  That's really hard to do! haha!!  I even tried using a guide, and it didn't work!  

Here are the supplies used on today's card:

CARD: Circle Celebration

Good morning!!  Can you believe the new catalog is "open for business" tomorrow!?!  For this card, I used the challenge at The Color Throwdown -- and I combined them with the Circle Celebration Stamp Set from the Jan-June Catalog.  It wasn't added to the new Annual Catalog, but you can still order it until the end of June!  Colors I used were the new In Colors:  Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent and Polished Pink.  


The sentiment is from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set--love the font!!  and it's a bigger sentiment, which worked well with this layout!  Here are the colors from the challenge:

and, the supplies I used:

CARD: Soar Confidently

Good morning!  I had some time to play yesterday, and designed this wonderful Father's Day card for two challenges!!  First, the sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches, and secondly, a theme challenge from Inkspire Me!


I combined some new supplies with the old!  Okay, actually, the only "new" item is the Smoky Slate Textured Ribbon -- it's it pretty?!!  And, working in the aviation world, I just love this biplane from the Soar Confidently Stamp Set!

Here are the two challenges:
