June Challenge Cards

Hello Crafty Friends!  Can you believe that June is almost over?  This month has truly flown by!  So, time to post our cards :)

Here was the challenge:
 First up - Regina!  She created this sketch and chose the colors as well.  She made two cards using this challenge and I really like them both!  The first card is a baby card.  Isn't it adorable?  I love that little bunny stamp and using the smoky slate color on it is just perfect!  I also love how Regina spritzed the background piece and added the pearls.  It is just the perfect embellishment for this card.  To read more about this card, please visit Regina's blog here.
 Here is Regina's second card.  She is using a new set that just came out.  I love that little crab!  I love the "rope" used as ribbon on this card and I also really like the way Regina used the colors.  There are just hints of the purples, but it really makes the octopus and crab stand out.  This is a really cute card!  To read more about this card and to see other creations by Regina, please visit her blog here:
 Next we have Michelle's card.  I love the simple beauty of this card.  Michelle nailed this challenge!  The flowers and the sentiment stamped on the flower is perfect.  Love it Michelle!
 Here's one by my very talented sister Debbie!  Her use of color is amazing to me too.  The use of the DSP on this card really makes the sentiment and butterfly pop.  I also like the textured circle under the butterfly - beautiful.  To read more about this card and to see more beautiful creations by Debbie, please visit her blog here:
 And last up is my card.  I have done two tea parties for clients this year, so am in love with my tea stamp sets :)  I decided to use some of the stamps in the set that I normally don't use.  I created my own DSP by stamping the flower image in Smoky Slate on the Smoky Slate card stock.  I also didn't have ribbon that would work on this card, so I cheated and used card stock that I cut into thin strips. 
Thanks for looking!  Hope you'll join us next month for our next challenge!  Have a great day and week!
