I know next weekend is going to be super busy, so I decided I'd better post Michelle's and my cards now! Here is the sketch and color challenge:
Michelle had the good idea to feature the SU! In-Colors that are retiring at the end of the month. I know I'm going to miss these colors. I really liked them!
Firs up is Michelle's adorable Birthday card. I love the cute DSP she used to set the tone for this card. The coloring on the images is right on with the colors she used in this card. I also love that she featured a tag in the middle with the sentiment - very clever and cute! The gem brad and ribbon just add that extra touch that Michelle always does so well :) Check out her other creations here.
Next up is my card. I had a hard time with this one. I wanted to use a different stamp set, but then realized I had to use the In Colors. So, I went to my favorite DSPs and everything started to evolve from there. My husband's aunt has a birthday coming up and my mother-in-law (her sister) loves to call her the "princess". I thought she deserved a "royal" card ;) I haven't had a chance to even use my new stamps from February, so pulled them out and started stamping. I had a hard time with the sentiment in the middle. I think I stamped it like 10 times; different inks on different DSP. I finally decided on this combo. I was going to use brads on the corners of the main image, but I have a hard time not using ribbon on a card and liked the look of the ribbon best.
So, there we have it! I can't believe we are already at the end of May. Soon we'll be posting June's challenge :) Thank you all for looking and have a wonderful day!
