September Challenge Cards

Happy end of September!  I know I'm happy because it means my fiscal year end is about to end at work!  This has been a crazy busy month!

Let's just get to the cards.  Here is the challenge design and colors.  I do love these new In Colors!

First, we have Regina's exciting card!  I love so much about this card, I don't know where to start.  Well, Regina loves stars and I love that she punched them out, then punched out circles around them, and put the In Colors behind to make the stars pop!  I don't know how she did the textured background, but isn't it cool?  It reminds me of sprinkles on a fun birthday cake.  The crazy string reminds me of string confetti you can spray out of a can!  To see more of Regina's amazing creations, please visit her blog here.

I love this card, Regina!  Thanks for joining the challenge.
Next is my card.  I don't know what it is about these mosaic shapes, but I love them!  When I was trying to think of what stamp set to use for this challenge, I grabbed another set first.  But, I just couldn't help myself and decided to go with this one instead.  I had other ideas for the long piece, but I just couldn't get it to work with my Stamp-a-majig.  I think I'm just not good with that thing and large or long stamps!  So, I decided to make my own designer paper instead :)  Like I said, I just love these colors!  I did pop up the punched out mosaics using dimensionals and put some pearls on two of the mosaics.  I decided to put pearls on the strip to tie everything together.  This was a hard sketch, but fun in the end :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
