June Challenge Cards

Happy Saturday!  I know it isn't the end of the month, but since we've finished the challenge early, I wanted to post the cards.  Here was the challenge:
First up is Regina's card.  Isn't this beautiful?  Regina has such a talent for color; either coloring an image, or putting colors together.  I really like how she managed to frame the image so that it really stands out on the card.  The flower embellishments in the corners add just the right touch.  I also love the lacy border underneath the sentiment.  Love it, Regina!  Thank you for joining us :)  For more of Regina's lovely creations, please visit her blog here.

Next is Michelle's card and it ROCKS!  I love this card - what a great card for a teen.  There are so many things I love about this card:  The way she used the images and colors, the corner images and embellishments, and the speckled white piece - it just works so nicely! 

The next image is the inside of her card - not only did she do an amazing job on the front, but look at the work she did on the inside!  Michelle, you rocked this challenge!  I love this card!

This next card was the first one I made for this challenge.  My sister (Debbie Naylor) celebrated her birthday at the end of May.  I wanted to use this stamp set for her and decided to use this challenge to help me.  She has two adorable dogs, so I thought she'd get a kick out of this.  

This next card is the one I really had in mind to do when I was thinking about the colors, it was close to Memorial Day, and I wanted to thank all those that have and continue to serve.

If you decide to join us in the challenge, please do!  I'll be happy to post your creation :)
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!

June Challenge

Happy June!  I really loved this sketch from last year and thought it would be fun to use it again and to be ready to celebrate Independence Day.  This time though, I thought it would be fun to use the new In Colors.  Join us and let's see your creations!
